Pond at Chinese Gardens

Pond at Chinese Gardens

This is the pond at Chinese Gardens in Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. There aren’t any gardens, anymore. The sunlight breaking through and hitting the surface of the pond was pretty stunning. Especially after a couple days with heavy cloud cover.

And one of those times where I had been in the woods and using a high ISO, the sun broke out and I went for the shot without resetting the ISO down … plenty of exposure room to have got down to the base ISO.

  • Camera: Nikon D850
  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 102mm
  • ISO 800 1/1250 sec f/14

Greetings.

Just wanted to let you know that I have been having some issues with the WordPress application and occasionally will get error messages when I try to schedule a post. When I go back into edit mode and return the post is scheduled, however, I have had a couple instances where an email is sent out announcing the post immediately… but the post is not published until the scheduled date.

My apologies and I hope you will forgive the inconvenience while I try to resolve this issue.

I first shot this with my Nikon and telephoto lens … and struggled with the very shallow depth of field. I ended up cropping a lot. I was unhappy with the result … so I finally ended up going back with my Fuji and shooting it again. Sometimes, you just need to have a fresh start.

I really like the atmospheric effects in this image (the shades of grey fading into the distant mountains). It is one of the things I look for when shooting. That and the moments of light breaking through.

I was on top a 70 foot bank overlooking Puget Sound when I noticed a flock of birds flying by off-shore. I took a shot, not knowing what kind of bird they were … too far away for my visual identification skills. Nice to have the resolution to crop in and do the identification.
