It was a fine day yesterday, the sun is out, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful and so are you…dear prudence. Ooops! that’s an excerpt from Beatle’s song DEAR PRUDENCE. Talking about the beatles, they were my favorite band growing up and to this date they are still the best band ever. Well that is a subjective opinion and I don’t want to get any heat for writing that. And John Lennon is the best Beatle, though he may not have been as big as Paul was but nevertheless to me all his works were so amazing and full of meaning.
I can talk about The Beatles for hours but that is not the intention of this current posting. As I was saying, yesterday at work finished eating my oatmeal with chocolate chips and I was called to assist a computer problem in our adjacent building. I noticed how blue the sky was and for no reason at all I walked towards the space in between the buildings, looked up and saw this pine tree as tall as our second storey building with dead brown needles. I thought to myself this may be a good shot with the green and brownish red colors with a deep blue backdrop. Of course, I finished assisting one of my user and came back to my office and grabbed my trusty Sony Alpha 850 with the 100 mm F/2.8 lens.
Walked back and took a couple of shots because I think I got the exposure spot on: F/8 at 1/800 second, ISO 200 without any filters. With minor tweaks in Lightroom 3, the picture is shown on the right.
