Free Photo of the Day 1/19/15

Hi friends!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a free picture, but it’s a new year and a good time to start it up again. And, I’ve got a new campaign going to try to get this nursing school project off the ground. I’m very hopeful that I can still afford classes this spring and be on track for the accelerated BSN program at UConn.

The image above was taken with the T3i and the Super Takumar M42 screw mount lens I raved about in December. It was shot at ISO 100, f1.8, and 1/3200, and was taken at Mansfield Hollow yesterday. The reservoir is frozen over and I thought this piece of ice in the sunlight made a nice subject. The resulting image, with the shallow depth of field and star contrast, makes a nice surrealistic statement on this very cold winter.

Feel free to use freely, with credit if you don’t mind. And, of course, feel free to help me make my dream of a better life for me and River come true by getting me to nursing school!
