Another one of my favorite shots to take is just before sunset or just after sun rise. The angle of the sun can make or break a shot. This one if of Lake Don Pedro (just East of La Grange, California off Hwy 132 (between Bonds Flat Road and Zarzamora St). Shot was taken on January 1, 2007 about 4:36 P.M.. Again, the DSLR Pentax ISO 100, Focal length 20mm (focal length at 35mm film was 30mm). Timing was 1/90 of a second at F6.7. Angled my camera parallel to the sun and shot across the lake with a slight fog/haze bank in the distance. The sun just played with the lake, hills, and sky. Timing was everything. A few minutes sooner or later would not have produced the same results. I was very lucky to be passing by when I did.
