After the Rain

Uploaded: September 25, 2009


It was 7:15am, dark and misty, and there I was...dressed in my business clothes, pressed firmly against the wet brick of my office building, attempting to get some shots of these neato water droplets. Of course, the next morning found me half-kneeling in the flower beds as my skirt started to absorb a bit too much morning moisture!

Exif: F Number: 7.1, Exposure Bias Value: -0.67, ExposureTime: 10/2000 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 400, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 105.00 mm, Model: NIKON D40
