One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2018—Stairway to Heaven?

The stairway leading to the boarded up United Brethren Church in the ghost town of Elberton, WA made for an interesting photography challenge: a handheld vertical shot.  I was determined to get this shot without resorting to my tripod.   After quite a few attempts, I managed to handhold vertically (much more challenging for me than horizontal) at a shutter speed of 1/20 sec. something I’ve practiced but have not always achieved.  The additional challenge was viewing the scene while the setting sun to the left shined into my left eye if I moved forward or backward and lost the protection of the tree.  D850, 70-200mm f/4 lens at  92mm, f/5, ISO 64, SS 1/20 sec. not straightened or cropped.
