Absolutely beautiful. Love the lighting.

Behind The Lens

Location
There are some beautiful settings along the Naperville Riverwalk, including covered bridges. This covered bridge is near the Carillon and paddleboat pond.
Time
I couldn't sleep, so I got up, found that we had a misty overcast morning. I grabbed my gear and took some photos. This was taken at 6:35 AM.
Lighting
The overcast sky, misty atmosphere, puddle covered walks and wet tree limbs caused the lights to bounce and glow. I was lucky to be there to snap this shot.
Equipment
Nikon D5100, 18-55mm zoom (45mm), and tripod. Exposure was 1/4 second, f4.5, ISO 1,600.
Inspiration
I'd always loved moody, wet-look pathways, so I headed to the Riverwalk, an area of many great settings, interesting bridges, and walkways along a scenic river.
Editing
I was lucky that everything was in place here, so it required minimal post processing. This image is very close to "SOC" (straight out of camera).
In my camera bag
When I walk the Riverwalk, I usually travel light, and pack only the D5100 and either its 18-55mm or 55-300mm lens. Depending on time of day, I'll take a mono-pod or tripod along too.
Feedback
Sometimes, those "can't sleep" mornings or evenings are great times to head out for photos. "Bad weather" and "bad lighting" can yield out-of-the-ordinary shots. This is one of those.
