Mount Diablo

Mount Diablo, originally uploaded by Stephen Foster.

“Poo Kow kong Ma”, my mother’s mountain. Mount Diablo is modest, as mountains go, but visible from most of California. No other peak in the state sees as much territory. Some one has suggested that the only peak on Earth to see a greater expanse is Kilimanjaro, in Africa.

I shot four frames, playing with the zone of focus and depth of field. I like this best because of the sharpness and exposure on the gate with good exposure on the mountain. Shooting this, I intended to place the mountain out of focus. A wee bit more blur would have more to my intent.

I have been pressing a camera to my face since I was twelve years old; if you look closely, you can see the marks. View all posts by Stephen Foster
