So if you step off the road just about anywhere in this whole park, you've got …these little creosote bushes everywhere, and it's the middle of the day. …The light's pretty drab. It's really hazy over there, so it's not …a great time for big landscape shooting. But I've got so many of these things, …it's silly not to try to look at them as potential subject matter. …So I've just been wandering around out here. …And the first thing that strikes me is, because it's still winter, the sun's …still kind of low. So even here, it's coming on 10:30.…
We're still getting a nice, good, strong shadow off of them. …And it's kind of cool, because I get this sort of symmetrical thing. …If I'm shooting into the light, the bush itself becomes more of a silhouette. …And, and so there's kind of this axis across the middle that's interesting, the …shadow versus the bush itself. that said, right here, this one I'm …looking at, the ground's kind of rocky and it, it drops off right here, so the …edge of my shadow here is getting a little soft. …
