Folsom (CA), River Trail Bridge, Reflection, Long Exposure Monochrome

Another one shot and done late afternoon.  The initial composition I had in my mind was not going to work given the placement of the clouds.  This view under the bike trail bridge would have to do.  Exposure was at least a minute underexposed as the shot was stopped just before a paddleboarder was about to enter from the right.  The decision was probably for the best.  With this high contrast composition, the attempt to properly expose the underside of the bridge would cause the highlights in the sky to blow out.

EXIF data: Nikon D7000, center-weighted metering mode, ISO100, 18mm, f/10, 428 sec (6 min 8 sec), 10 stop ND
