Yes...I shoot color. :)

In case your starting to wonder, of course I shoot color. Sometimes I really like the dramatic effect that comes with black & white images, but mostly I prefer color. This image was sort of magical. The lighting, the path, the stairs. I was walking through some landscape gardens at the University of Georgia and I was struck by this scene. I first tried to take the shot without my tripod and I ended up going to the hotel, getting my tripod, and coming back. This exposure was 30 seconds long. Truthfully, this shot is quite different from what you would have actually seen. It was taken at about 11:00 PM and I was originally fixated on the stairs. By the time I was done, the shot had changed dramatically.
