Illuminated Landscapes: Sodium Series

While the Abstract collection was almost entirely my photography, The sodium series is almost entirely Brad’s. (except for this one photo below, which is my only entry into this set)

Kyle Clements: Illuminated Landscape #74

We call it the sodium series because of the deep orange glow in the sky. Although we were shooting these in the wilderness, we were only an hour away from several cities, and the warm glow from those distant sodium streetlights bounced off the clouds and filled the sky with an unexpected orange light.

Brad Blucher: Illuminated Landscape #25

Our eyes only saw black, so we were initially quite surprized by what we saw on our camera view screens. The orange light provided us with a base coat to play off of, and it complimented our blue and green lights very nicely.

If you look closely, you can see some stars peeking through the clouds.
