Default Haven't posted in a while, Forest shot.

I have been gone for a while and haven't posted anything, so I thought I'd better start back up. This is a shot I took during a morning hike to Heather Lake, just north of Seattle.

I'd like to hear whatever you have to say, good, bad, whatever.

Thanks.

Reminds me of an old Disney classic -- Light in the Forest. A really nice shot. The branch hanging horizontal in lower left seems out of place to me. I think if it was gone the composition would look more complete. But still a photographer's scene. Well done.

First, welcome back!

Good: It's a beautiful shot..

Bad: It's a beautiful shot..

Whatever..you know...

This is a kind of shot I would like to take, but I never have my camera with me at the right time!

Thanks for the kind words. I agree that the branch looks a little out of composition with the rest. It was on a trail that the heavy snow had just melted, leaving behind the broken branches. I probably could crop it a bit differently to remove the branch.

Thanks,

Dave

Default One more of the same morning

Here is one more shot during the same morning. I could have spent all day there.

You were pretty lucky to have hit the right time to be there. Those beams really make the shot.

I'd like to say that is was all planned out this way, but I would be lying. It was my first hike to the lake in this area and I left out early. There was still a bit of snow on the ground but it had been warming up so it was creating that foggy mist in the air. I only had my old lens which was something like a 35-75 on a 1.6X factor camera. I wish I would have had something a little more wide angle.

Thanks again for the comments.

I would like to know, what settings you used to capture the beams so nicely long shutter or is it the aperture?

The first one was shot at 35mm, f6.3 and 1/80th of a sec. shutter.

The Second one 35mm, f5.6 and 1/60th.

They were both taken at ISO 200 and I believe I was using Aperture Priority but it could have been program mode as well.
