Passage of Light
Description: EFS17-85 @47mm, f/16, 1.6 Seconds, +.3ev, ISO100, RAW, tripod.
My annual tradition; shooting in the south arcade aisle of Washington National Cathedral, to capture the early
morning light in late fall/early winter. The sun, staying lower in the sky, creates a marvelous light show in this aisle,
as light coming through the south wall windows paints the limestone in gorgeous reflected color.
The first year, I shot 10 weeks into owning my first P&S camera ("Light Lives Here"). The next year, I put that
Sony camera on a tiny tripod and, misunderstanding, used an ND filter ("Wilson's Tomb").
This third annual tribute to the light is from my Canon XTi, with tripod, no filters, in a horizontal format for the first time.
