A Shot A Day – 2017 (06/06/2017)

“The Path Less Taken”

Cape Flattery, on the Olympic Peninsula, sits at the Northwest corner of the continental United States and is accessed by one of the coolest trails I have had the opportunity to hike. Clearly many hours were invested in the building of the trail and its aesthetic fit into the surrounding woods.

A Shot A Day – 2017(B) (157A of 365)-(06-06)

BODY: Canon EOS 5DS R

LENS: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM

MISC:

NiSi 180mm Filter Holder (For Canon 11-24 Lens),

NiSi 82mm Adapter for Canon 11-24mm Lens 180mm, Filter Holder

NiSi Polarizing Filter 180x180mm

EXPO: ISO 1600, 1/80 @ f/8.0 – 35mm

The image you are seeing here is the result of focus stacking ten (10) individual images. The scene and its inherit depth just naturally called for a focus stack approach.

The series is shot in Aperture Preferred mode, with the lens in manual focus mode. I have selected f/8.0 for all of the images in the series as the lens seems to be sharpest at that aperture. Composition is pretty straight forward with the tree, that is the focal point of the image, sitting on one of the intersection lines that are implied by the rule of thirds.
