Week 7, Day 45, June 14, 2009, "Treman State Park"



When I woke up this morning, I asked Judy if she had any plans. She said that she didn't. I didn't have any plans either. After a few chores around the house, she asked if I wanted to hike in Robert H. Treman State Park. It's one of my favorite places, so of course I said yes.

These falls are just above the major falls. I like how the falls look like there are points of light bursting from the bottom of the falls, and around the rock just above the falls. I also like seeing some rock structure under the falls on the right side.

Lessons Learned:
  • Choosing a White Balance for a florescent light produces some interesting effects with water, and shale. (I tried my traditional White Balance, but in this photo I used the florescent setting. I think it had a nice effect)
  • (Although I learned this a while ago.) Setting to a narrow aperture, and a longer shutter speed produces this type of effect.
Photo details: Exposure time 2.000s, Aperture f/20.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 17 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 27mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, tripod.
