New Blog Header Photo

It had been a long time since I updated the photo at the top of this blog, so it seemed like an appropriate time to do so.

The image depicts a winding road stretching into the distance, flanked by trees on either side. The road, which appears wet and slick, is shown in a black-and-white color scheme, highlighting the contrast between the dark trees and the lighter road surface. Telephone poles and power lines run alongside the road, which gently curves through a wooded area, creating a serene and slightly desolate atmosphere. The surrounding trees are a mix of evergreens and deciduous trees, some of which have lost their leaves, suggesting late autumn or early spring. The sky is overcast, adding to the monochromatic and moody ambiance of the scene.

This photo was actually a test photo, taken from a moving car with a new camera I have. I was testing how good the vibration reduction in the camera was, and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised!

I was also testing the built-in black and white mode, which I’m still experimenting with. It seems the black and white filtering varies depending on which camera mode the camera is set to. (I use aperture priority, manual, and automatic most often.) That might be the subject of another blog post.

Photo details: Nikon Zf in B&W mode, Nikon 17-55 f/2.8G DX (crop) lens set to 55mm, Nikon FTZ-II lens adapter, 1/250s at f/5.6, ISO 125.
