Morning Dip

Uploaded: February 26, 2004 05:21:36


f5.6 @ 1/125 Taken at the Cincinnati Zoo on a very cold and foggy morning. The dense fog eliminated the ever present reflections in the exhibit glass and since it was so cold there were no other visitors standing there. I set up my tripod and waited (a while!) for "Danny" to take his morning dip. (I am resubmitting this image that I posted last month - New, upgraded scanner!)
