Flare in the canopy

Flare in the canopy

Kent, Connecticut.

We hiked the Appalachian Trail between Hoyt Rd, on the New York/Connecticut border to Bull’s Bridge over Ten Mile Mountain. Stopping for water near Ten Mile River I noticed the sun shining through a rather dense canopy. Figured I’d try an intentional flare shot (again).

Tough to know how to meter shots like this: spot kills everything around it, center seems best and metering the entire frame kills the flare. When you want flare, you want flare.

Looking up at the Eiffel Tower


Flickr member Boxertrixter took this excellent image of the internal infrastructure of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France with his Fuji X100T.
