Some Pictures at Como Lake

So I recently picked up the book Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson and thought I should get out and practice some of the stuff I’ve been reading. I headed to Como Lake down in St Paul last weekend and took some nice looking pictures.

Como Lake 020
A nice close up of a purple flower around the lake, I crawled up real close to it. Shot at 55mm with a 1/80 exposure, f/5.6 aperture and ISO 100.

Como Lake 031
The fountain in one of the roads into the lake area. I had wanted to get a wider picture with all the water having more motion but there was too much light for my camera to be able to handle that. Instead I decided to get a good close shot and let the water be frozen, I think it came out well. Shot at 250mm with a 1/640 exposure, f/5.6 aperture and ISO 100.

Como Lake 064
Another closeup of some small yellow flowers on the other side of the lake. Shot at 55mm with a 1/250 exposure, f/5.6 aperture and ISO 100.
