Unfortunately, since I bought the new camera it's been horridly smokey/smoggy around town, which hasn't been ideal for many of the shots I'd have liked to try. Visibility has been stupidly bad (trees at the end of the street are already fading into the haze).
However, we are surrounded here by lots of mountain ranges, and in some places, with the current hazy conditions, you often get areas where you can see up to 5 different mountain ranges showing up in basically just various levels of grey, which kind of looks pretty cool in in a sort of a way.
I'd kind of like to try and capture this, but am not sure if Morning sun facing the mountains, or evening sun behind the mountains, or some other option would do it the most justice, nor to really know how to go about capturing it. I'm hoping to get at least one of the closest hills to have some level of detail, but it's been so stupidly hazy that even the closest ones are going to be hazed out a bit. Which made me think that really early morning might also be the clearest for at least something to have some detail.
It's not likely to be a really amazing photo, but the layers of grey look pretty impressive to the eye when you see it off in the distance while driving around, and hell, I'll point a camera at just about anything for the next little while as I learn how to use it, so even if it's a total flop, as long as I learn something while trying it, it then I guess it's worthwhile.
So any tips, ideas, recommendations, or examples would be fantastic.
