Timothy Lake Exposed

As I said, the lake was right beside the garden, so I didn't have to go far for this photo. I had made the same composition the night before, but I wasn't happy with the lighting. I like this one a lot better.

I'm glad the clouds were there. For one, they reflected the soft pink glow of the early morning light, making the photo more interesting. Secondly, they made the sky darker, meaning I could get a more even exposure. If the sky had been brighter, I would have had to underexpose in order to ensure that the sky wouldn't be washed out. That would have left the boats in almost complete darkeness. As it stands, I underexposed by one f-stop and I think it worked out pretty well.

Oh this is a pretty scene, must have been wonderful being up at this hour taking it all in. This is a lovely exposure, too. I like the two boats next to each other, each one offering its benefits to a potential rider.
