First To Turn

Uploaded: August 22, 2005


f/22 @ .3 sec; ISO 200; Canon 75-300mm lens @ 75mm; tripod. Taken in late afternoon at Morton Arboretum, Lisle, Illinois. This tree is turning colors early; possibly from the drought we've had this summer.

Thank you, Amalia. This was done for a class when I was working on my Nature Photography Certificate last summer and I was the only one in the class to shoot the tree from this angle. The next week, the whole class was standing in my spot trying to capture it! But, due to lighting and other conditions, they couldn't duplicate it. #2681712

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
