Folsom (CA), Lake Natoma Crossing, Reflection, Sunset

Folsom, CA

10 minutes.  That was the amount of time I had to shoot this particular location.  Dinner plans were set and I had 10 minutes.

Not a particularly productive 10 minute shoot as the rocks included in the foreground as a sort of leading lines really cluttered the image instead of leading the eye.  I did manage to salvage this image by using a square crop, omitting the foreground rocks and simplifying the composition.

When you are rushed, the little details about a scene escape you, such as the lights on the bridge.  They were off upon arrival and on by departure.  Yet, all I could remember was noticing the lights distinctly walking back up from the river wondering if my shooting location was just a bad spot because the lights did not stand out while shooting.  It was only after looking over the images at home did I realize the lights came on about 5 minutes into the shoot.

EXIF data: Nikon D7000, center weighted metering mode, ISO 100, 98mm,  f/14, 2.5 sec
