The sun was setting very quickly. I was watching the shadow line as it was moving up the mountainside. The sun’s angle became just perfect to illuminate the colorful fall foliage up on the mountain, across the water, on the far side of Rose Valley Lake. This created a very interesting “bokeh” background for a closeup of these fuzzy topped wetlands grasses.
The image was captured along the shore of Rose Valley Lake. The lake is located ten miles north of the city of Williamsport, on Rose Valley Road, in north central Pennsylvania.
This photo was taken on the evening of October 23rd, 2008. It was shot with a Canon EOS 10D SLR camera with a Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8L USM lens. The shutter speed was 1/60th second at f/5.6. The camera’s ISO was set to 400. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a Manfrotto 222 head. A remote shutter release cable was also used to eliminate camera movement.
