Rainy Dawn — in Sepia

It was wet, wet, wet outside, so, of course, when I came across coyotes making their rounds, they, too, were wet, wet, wet. These semi-silhouette photos were taken under very bad early and gloomy light conditions. My ISO must have been about 6400. Nevertheless, the individual fur strands stood out sharply against the background sky and I thought their forms on the rocks were absolutely beautiful. Under those lighting conditions, there really was no “color” in the photos, so I played with some “enhancement” possibilities and decided that sepia showed these forms off to advantage.

Rock formations and outcroppings exist in a great many of our Bay Area parks: these are mostly chert, but there are also a few serpentine formations.

    Hi Janet,

    I am absolutely in love with these photos. I am in the process of designing a website and I would love to use a couple of these images, they capture the feeling I am looking for beautifully. Just wanted to reach out and ask for your permission to do so. Thank you so much.

      Hi Lauren — As long as your site is pro-coyote, you are absolutely welcome. Glad you like the photos! Janet
