Traveling traveling traveling! All I have been doing is traveling. Well, I am back now and time to catch up with my life.
I took this shot in Springfield, Ohio, in Snyder Park. Its funny how you can find an interesting scene just by looking around. Not much of a park but it does have some nice spots. Probably a good thing to do more often – slow down and look for good things. Beauty is all around us if we only look. Seems like only the ugly draws our attention, there is nothing like a car wreck to make us slow down and stare. We need to look harder. See the beauty!
The challenge with this photo was balancing the dark areas with the bright sky through the trees at the top. I spot metered off the steps (my focal point) and shot in aperture priority. I set f/14 to get a good depth of field (everything in focus) and that worked out to 1/40 of a second at ISO 400.
