This image may be difficult to truly appreciate given the size for internet viewing. It’s a panorama stitched from 5 different images. The day was extremely still and that allowed the capture of a mirror-like reflection of this bridge. Given the pale blue sky, I decided to minimize it in the image so that the focus of attention would remain on the bridge.
Until next time, good light and keep shooting. –KEVIN
Fall Scenic. Canon 7D | ef-s 15-85mm @ 59mm | ISO 100
Today I had the opportunity to get out and photograph in the afternoon so I ventured to a local park in search of a Fall scenic. The area where I live is not known for its extreme fall colors (need to drive about 3 hours North) but compared to where I just moved from, seeing any shades of red/orange/yellow is a welcomed sight.
I had no specific goals in mind on this afternoon shoot; a part of me simply wanted, one could argue needed, to get out into the natural environment. Thus, I grabbed my camera/tripod, a general purpose walk-around lens (ef-s 15-85mm), and challenged myself to capture an inspiring image. As I enjoyed the fall sights, sounds, and pine-filled scent in the air, I came across this lake and was instantly drawn by the bridge, warm colors, and reflections in the water. Once I found the perspective I wanted, I composed the image. It was a great way to spend an afternoon.
Until next time, good light and keep shooting. — KEVIN
