Week 47, Day 324, March 19, 2010, Sunset Through the Woods

Judy and I went for a walk after dinner tonight.  On the way back to the house the sun was shining brightly through the trees of the woods. 

I like the patterns of the trees silhouettes, and the color of the Sun as it filtered through the trees.  It's great to have warmer weather once again to take walks outside.

Lessons Learned:
  • Today was Dragon Day at Cornell, and I forgot my camera.  I didn't follow my own advice to always carry a camera. (Dragon Day is the day the School of Architecture builds a huge dragon, and parades it across campus.  The Engineers respond with a Pheonix.  The Dragon is burned at the end of the event.)
Photo details: Exposure time 1/1600 sec, Aperture f/2.8, ISO 100, Focal Length 80 mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L, handheld.

Once again, you and I thought alike! I took a couple of shots tonight aiming for just this very picture, but they did not turn out as I'd hoped - I was too impatient to wait for the sun to set further.

Great job!

I saw the dragon today! Missed the Phoenix but heard all about it. The dragon was gorgeous.
