As Requested: Photo Details

Kimberly asked in the comments, and a few others have emailed me and asked for the specifics on this shot, so here you go:


June 12



Shutter Speed: 1/100 sec.
f/1.8
50mm
ISO 800

And in the interest of full disclosure, I will admit that I was on my way home in the midst of a tornado warning, and had the camera out in an attempt to get a good shot of a rather impressive cloud line in the distance. This shot was taken haphazardly on the highway - I just held the camera up and shot out the windshield - and I really like how it turned out. So there you have it - the details of my lucky shot!

Lucky shots are the best and this one is awesome! In a tornado warning too!

Beautiful shot. I'm always amazed at how the glass of my DIRTY car window doesn't compromise those lucky shots! Well done.

I sometimes feel like 1/2 of my good shots were lucky ones! :)

This one was absolutely beautiful!

I love the shot, it even better that it was a suprise.
