Foggy Night, Durham Church


This photo was taken Tuesday night at 9:45 p.m.

I've been waiting a few years for this shot, believe it or not. The lights at the church aren't on too often and when they are, there's no fog. Tuesday night was the perfect combination, so I got the tripod set up just in time for a few long exposure shots - the church lights went out at 10:00 p.m. (Whew!)

Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 32mm, ISO 100, f/10, shutter 20 seconds. Converted to monochrome using the Gradient Map, curves adjustments, color balancing.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!



Kathleen, I posted my 1st comment too soon. I'm looking at Foggy Night @ Church in Durham and all I can see is this being a great cover for a great mystery. I'd love to know if you agree and if you do and have the time, reply to my e-mail address. I grew up in Pittsburgh (Squirrel Hill) and have to say that Pennsylvania is a gorgeous state that makes good for Saturday afternoon rides, whether it's fall trees or winter scenes, christmas light serches, etc. Keep up the good work.
