This is an image I captured April 8, 2010. Nothing special about the image. This is a collection area across the highway from the Maquoketa Interpretive Center. I like to stop there on my lunch hour sometimes and sometimes I’ll stop on my way home. There are usually some water fowl around the area and on this particular day I was more about trying to capture the sky than anything else.
This image was taken in about the same spot today. Now there are a couple of cool things about this image. First and foremost it was captured at 5:15 pm with an ISO 200 1/60 shutter and F3.5. Which means that at 5:15 there was still enough light available to make the image. Wahoo!
There was almost no contrast between the snow and the sky. It was grayer than gray with the only hint of color was the weeds in the foreground. So I gave the image my retro look.
Anyway I thought it was fun to see the two images together 9 months apart. The light is getting longer and it won’t be long and Spring will be here. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
