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.
