Lunar Illumination

Driving out to this location, I was hoping that there would still be a deep layer of snow covering the Kansas dirt.  I didn’t realize it would still be this much.  The drift on the north side of this barn was easily three feet deep.  Fortunately it was cold enough that the snow’s surface had frozen over and we were able to walk on top of the snow with out much worry of sinking in.  The one thing I distinctly remember from this night was the bone-chilling wind.  The wind chill that morning had to have been below zero.  Needless to say, I was glad I was able to work most of my camera settings with my gloves on!

    • Thanks bud. Here is the Exif data. Ignore the 0.0 aperture and 50mm focal length. This was shot with a Rokinon 14mm and I’m sure the aperture was set at 2.8. because it is a manual aperture/manual focus, it doesn’t register right with the Exif data.

      Exif data
      Exposure 41
      Aperture f/0.0
      Focal Length 50 mm
      ISO Speed 1250
      Exposure Bias 0 EV
