Fall Grasses

Fall Grasses, originally uploaded by Carl's Photography.

Taken with a Nikon D80.

* Exposure: 0.017 sec (1/60) [+]
* Aperture: f/10 [+]
* Focal Length: 18 mm [+]
* ISO Speed: 320 [+]

I started taking at f/8 but then decreased my aperture to f/10. Most of the shots from this evening were at 18mm wide angle. I used a circular polarizer which causes the increased blue concentration in the center of the photo. It really helped let the warm early evening sunlight warm up the colors of the grass. I rode my 4-wheeler around and photographed some standing up in the bed of it. For this one, though, I laid down in the grass with my toes just barely out of view at the bottom edge of the frame.

The main focus of the evening was photographing the soybean field which is turning golden. Ironically enough, you don't see the soybeans this photo even though they are within inches to the left.
