My First Post

I set up this web site to have a place to publish my photos and to post my random musings.  I am still learning WordPress so this is a trial post to see if I can make everything work properly.

Here is a photo I took on 9-28-09 using my Nikon D40, a 55-200 kit lens, ISO 200, focal length 200 mm.  Light was fading fast so this was shot using Auto-ISO which would tweak up the ISO for shutter speeds below 1/60th sec, just in case.  It turned out this was not necessary, however, as the P (Program) mode selected a shutter speed of 1/400th sec and aperture f/5.6.

Post processing was done with Photoshop Elements 7.0.  I cropped the image,  popped the saturation a little, and that was it.  For a full-size version of the photo always click on the image.
