I love Grand Manan Island for its unique location and beauty. Even in such a beautiful location, however, facing an empty sky on a humid, summer day can make it challenging to find an interesting subject to photograph even during sunset.
When I am out of ideas on Grand Manan and signature seascapes begin to look ordinary, I drive to Flagg Cove and walk along the Fisherman Wharf hunting for water reflections.
Here is the result of my solution for countering “bad photography weather.”
First, I change the aspect ratio from 3 x 2 to 16 x 9 using the Crop Overlay tool in Lightroom. The goal was to minimize the impact of boring, cloudless sky.
