Artist's Description

The sun was at the perfect angle to illuminate the treads of this very large spider web. The tree-lined creek in the background made a wonderful blurred backdrop, especially with the sparkling sunlight reflecting off of the fluttering leaves.

The arachnid “artist” was hiding beyond the view of the lens while this photograph was taken.

This photo was taken on Saturday, May 15th, 2010, using a Canon EOS 10D with a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro prime lens. The shutter speed was 1/60th second at f/4.5. 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. A circular polarizing filter was mounted on the lens to help highlight the details in the web.
