Pilings, Columbia River - Art Wolfe Store
The remains of a bygone era of wealth and prosperity from the timber barons of the late 1800 and early 1900s, old pilings loom in the mist on the Washington side of the mighty Columbia River. The overcast skies provided the perfect atmospheric conditions to light the subject, the falling rain softens the image and disturbs the water such that the long exposures necessary with my smallest apertures render the image as a mysterious and quiet, yet powerful image.
