Grab Shot 80 - Morning Fog


"This came about during an early morning commute when, for a change, I decided to take the ferry across the Potomac River rather than the bridge," said Alan Bushnell. "As I was leaving home (in the dark), I noticed my camera bag next to the door and grabbed it just for kicks. I'd done that a few times before, but never got the chance to use it."

When I arrived at the ferry, it was still quite dark and the combination of a recent snow with the water gave the whole river a nice low fog. I took this shot while standing next to my car on the ferry in the middle of the river. The shutter speed was a low 1/8th of second so the image stabilization on my lens was a lifesaver."

Allen used a Canon 20D, 70-200 f/2.8IS, with the ISO set to 400, 1/8 sec at f/7.1.
