Western Maryland fall foliage (Oct'08) - Finzel Swamp

I took a drive to Finzel Swamp this evening, one of my favorite photography locations, to see the Fall colors. Here are a few shots from the visit, the colors are just starting to peak.

f16 / 1.6 sec shutter (with +8 ND filter & Polarizer) / ISO 400
ND filter was used because a slight breeze was blowing & I wanted to use a long shutter to capture the motion blur of the leaves.

f5.6 / 1/800th second / ISO 400

f11 / 1/160th second / ISO 400
