Pond's Edge


This photo was taken late Monday afternoon. I think it might seem a bit abstract so I'll explain:

You're looking at the edge of a frozen pond. The ice is at least four inches thick. You can see leaves through the surface of the ice. The boy is lying on his side with his head turned toward the camera. His coat is a similar color to the leaves under the ice and his head is lying on the hood of the coat. The sun is setting off to the right and the warm light is illuminating the boy's light brown hair. The white dots are air bubbles in the ice.

Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 lens at f/5, 1/160s, ISO 400. Curves adjustments and color balancing.

Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
