Focal Length:80mm
Shutter:1/125 sec

Here’s the same shot as in yesterday’s post, but with a different focal point. This time the focus is on the brightly colored bush in the mid-ground, instead of the mossy rocks.

Amazing what a difference the focal point makes in a photograph, isn’t it?

I like this photo much better. The sharper focus on the background leads our eye through the rock/bridge tunnel and back.

This shot was taken along the Santiam River in Waterloo, Oregon on a grey, rainy day.

  1. I love the colours on this image. I agree this is a better image than yesterday’s; I think it’s because what makes the image is the colourful plant life at the back; yesterday’s photo looked wrong because it was the bridge that was in focus.

    Thanks Barbara! Hope you got something out of it.
