Where to take the waters


HOT SPRINGS POOL, GLENWOOD SPRINGS, COLORADO, JANUARY 11, 2009

Pentax K10D
Sigma 17-70 at 28mm
1/8 sec. f3.5
ISO 1600

I had to brace the camera on a walkway railing in order to get reasonable sharpness at 1/8 of a second with the lens wide open. Not as much mist was rising from the pool as usual on a January night, because the air temperature was comparatively warm at 30 degrees and there was no wind.

Great shot. I've been there, walking from the Amtrak station to the Hotel. We stayed at the Antlers. The pool could be a skating rink..."quiet waters." Like the warmth of tungsten. Carl Morrison

Thanks. I experimented with cooler light temperatures in Photoshop but kept coming back to the original -- sometimes tungsten light just does the job best.
