Week 11 Day 72, July 11, 2009 "Rainy Day on Rich Lake"

We arrived in the Adirondacks and it rained most of the day. I went to a beach on Rich Lake, and took a few photos. The mist was rising from the trees and looked like a morning fog.

Lessons Learned:
  • Rainy Days are interesting for photography, but on the gray dreary days I find less inspiration. I need to look in new ways.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/640 sec, Aperture f/29.0, ISO 100 , Focal Length 95 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 153mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, tripod.

One thing I love about shooting in overcast weather - colors at closeup levels can be very rich. Try shooting flowers, or greens. Also, circular polarizers help reduce glare and reflection.

Thank you Jen. I haven't purchased a circular polarized filter yet, but it's on my list. Your comments are very helpful.

I just put in an order for a circular polarized filter. I look forward to trying it out.
