Yardley Boat Launch

Uploaded: December 28, 2008 11:37:58


Yesterday. For days, the chilling cold stopped me from going out, followed by delugious rain--day after day. Finally, on Saturday, although the sky was solid gray, the temperatures were rising into the 40s. So, I was off to the river.
First stop: The Yardley Boat Launch, on the Delaware. The river is breeching its banks, and the trees are uncomplainingly soaking their feet. Fog yesterday was just lying there, also enjoying a SPA day.
Grayness prevailed as far as the eye could see (not too very); the lonely Stars and Stripes provided the only welcome splash of color.
Raw, Aperture Priority.
ISO: 160, F5, 1/80s, 105mm. Slightly "Ortonized."

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/80 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 160, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 105.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D
