Do Not Disturb

Uploaded: April 22, 2009


A beautiful foggy afternoon at the Point Reyes National Seashore in Northern California. This was the park rangers quarters. I had to crank up my ISO in order to capture this hand held with the depth of field I wanted. With a foggy morning I don't mind the extra noise in the image. Point Reyes is the windiest place on the Pacific Coast and the second foggiest place on the North American continent. Weeks of fog, especially during the summer months. Shutter Speed: 1/80 second
F Number: F/20.0
Focal Length: 12 mm
ISO Speed: 800

Exif: F Number: 20, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/80 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 800, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 12.00 mm, Model: NIKON D200

Gorgeous capture Chris, the fog adds so much to the image. Very well composed and I am glad you didn't compromise that DOF :) #1117250
