Week 45, Day 314, March 7, 2010, Shadow Lands

We've had 2 sunny days in row, and the temperatures were much warmer today.  It's nice to go outside without a hat and gloves. 

The sun was so bright.   I concentrated on the shadows on the snow.  The shadow in the foreground is one of my favorite trees.  I like the color of the barn, and the barn roof as a contrast to the whiteness of the snow.

Lessons Learned:
  • Take advantage of whatever the lighting circumstance happens to be.  The bright Sun was fantastic for shadows today.
  • I am able to take my camera on my dog walks, and still take some photos.  Our 70 pound lab is very strong, but he's becoming a little more tolerant of my stopping to take photos.  Perhaps he is getting over being a puppy.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/1000 sec, Aperture f/16.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, handheld (Any blur in this photos is cause by the dog pulling my arm. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :-)).

I like this shot - shadows are fun to shoot. There are days I wish I had a dog to blame a blurry shot on! ;-) But I agree with you - it is SO nice to be able to go outside in just a jacket and to actually see the sun!
