delaware river, awaiting flood


delaware river, awaiting flood

Fred suggested running down to the river tonight to see the flood waters coming. I was forced to grab my Nikon without the viewfinder contraption--as it's in pieces. So I slipped on the wide angle lens which I haven't used in so long. I was thankful I remembered my hooded rain coat. Fred waited in the truck ever so patiently, windshield wipers keeping time.

Amazing!! I have to figure out how to do the long-exposure thing. Did you use a tripod?

thanks Mike! I typically use a tripod, but not this time. There is a ledge at the waterstation when I positioned. I set the ISO to 1600, opened up to f/3.0 and set the shutter to 10 seconds or so. Try it, it's fun and super easy!
