Day 214—Mending Fences

Or maybe that should be fences in need of mending. This is a close up detail of a fence at a friend’s home in Christian Valley near Auburn. I was intrigued by the wires and the lichen attached to the aging fence board. The temperature was well over 100° when I took this shot mid afternoon today so proper exposure was not forefront in my mind. After downloading the photos, I realized it was very underexposed because I was standing in deep shade, camera focused on the fence with a bright background behind it. As a result, I had to increase the exposure by a full two stops before it looked right.
