Focal Length:28mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

I took this photo during one of my morning walks around Cheadle Lake in Lebanon, Oregon.

I’m fond of this shot.

Photographers – I’m sure you all know that feeling, that rush of excitement when you’ve captured an image that you think may be something special. I felt it with this shot and I couldn’t wait to get home and look at it on my computer screen and mess with it in editing.

I was pretty bummed to see all the spots in the sky from dust on my camera sensor. I’d noticed spots on another recent shot, so I’d turned my camera off and on several times to activate the automatic sensor cleaner before I’d headed out around the lake that morning. These spots proved that I will have to have the sensor professionally cleaned. Thankfully, I have a back-up camera body.

If I can get the spots cleaned up, I’d like to enter this photo in one of my camera club’s monthly contests.
