Folsom (CA), Tumbled Driftwood, Waves, Long Exposure

ISO100, 68mm, f/18, 3 sec
Folsom Lake, CA

With the ruins of Red Bank now back underwater in Folsom Lake after a series of rainstorms pushed the lake level up 40′ in just over a month, there was not a possibility of hoping standing water surrounding the ruins for a reflection shot.

I was left searching for compositions.  At least the rain has brought down debris that has washed up on the banks of the lake.  Here the tumbled smooth branch catches the light from the sun as waves wash over.

  1. Well, you can’t complain about this wash up. The smooth texture here…brought out with the longer exposure is brilliant. My favorite aspect here are the coordinating colors of the branch and the water…muted orange and blues. Really dig this one.
