Seven Springs Autumn Fest | Pittsburgh Photographer | Autumn Splendor

Sunday was the first (and maybe last) day I had available to enjoy the beautiful Pennsylvania autumn so Toni and I trekked up to Seven Springs for their annual Autumn Festival. After walking through the various craft booths (required) and taking a chair lift ride, we took a nice long walk through the woods. Of course for me no walk in autumn would be complete without lugging a camera, lenses and tripod, too. It was a throughly enjoyable time and the resulting photos were quite nice. Here are my three favorites.

For the geek minded, all photos were made with a Canon 5D MK 2 with a 24 - 105 mm F/4 L lens mounted on a Gitzo carbon fiber tripod with a large Manfrotto ball head. ISO was set to 50. Mirror lock-up option enabled. Exposure was about 10 seconds at f/22 for the water shots, 1/40th at f/5.6 for the dock. RAW files were burned, dodged, enhanced and processed exclusively in Lightroom 2. Photoshop was not used.
