30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 19

I’m cheating today with regard to my daily photographic upload.  It was raining this morning and I had other obligations up until I needed to start work.  And now that I’m done work, I’m too tired to attempt a nighttime excursion given the dark, cloudy skies.  So, with that in mind, I decided to post a photo I took back in August 🙂

My son and daughter-in-law were visiting and we attempted to drive up to the summit of Cadillac Mountain for the sunset.  Unfortunately, we did not plan well and the entrance to the summit was closed due to a full parking lot.  We turned around and drove back to a small pull-off by the side of the park loop road that offered a view overlooking Eagle Lake.  It turned out to be the perfect spot to set up my tripod and we watched a spectacular sunset over Eagle Lake.

Sunset over Eagle Lake (1 of 1)

  • I used the Aperture priority setting – ISO set at 100.  My camera settings are 1/13 sec. f/16 120mm
  • I used my tripod and the Live View window and set focus at infinity.
  • Exposure Compensation was set to 0.00.
  • In Lightroom, I adjusted highlights, shadows and vibrance settings ever so slightly

Tomorrow I’ll be back on target with a “day of” photograph.  Enjoy!
