f11, 1/50th sec. ISO 400, Nikkor 18-70 mm kit lens. This aspect/angle of the Mission Dam is from the inlet side of the flue coming from the San Diego River. The water here is so still compared to the tumultuous opposite side, the reflections I saw in the water here were like a mirror. This dam is around 200 years old and was built by Father Junipero Serra and his helpers in 1812. Taken 8 January 2011.

Exif: F Number: 11, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/50 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 400, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 25.00 mm, Model: NIKON D300
