A Bit of Sunlight

Rain and Mud

It’s always fun to head outside with a group of students interested in nature and photography.  Although doing it in a cold, persistent rain does take away a bit of the fun.  I am onboard as a photographer for the Document Spring project, which is part of iNaturalist.  The program is part of the work being done at the Oldenburg Arts and Cultural Community.  The outing took place at Jay Cooke State Park.  As usual, there were some poor clothing choices considering the weather.  Many of the students wore only thin cloth shoes and no socks.   A few of us had appropriate rain wear and foot wear and could have stayed out longer.

Another visit to the St. Louis River as it flows through Jay Cooke State Park.

This image could also have been better with a shorter exposure to bring out the detail in the flowing water.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Tamron SP 28-75mm F/2.8, ISO 50, f/11, 20 sec, 10 stop ND filter.

In hindsight, I think I could have gone with a lesser stop filter and shorter exposure to maintain more detail in the water.
