Deep in the gorge of Watkins Glen, I was fascinated by the luminous shafts of sunlight that found their way into this beautiful, but often dark place.
Watkins Glen is a wonderful State Park at the southern end of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region in the State of New York, USA.
This was photographed on August 3rd, 2007, with a Canon EOS 10D camera using a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L zoom lens @ 70mm. The shutter speed was 1/60th sec at f/8. The camera’s ISO was set to 200. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release.
This image is “as-is”, just as the lens and camera captured it. The RAW file was converted to jpeg in Photoshop, with no alterations or enhancements.
Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.
