Oakes Quarry Landscape

Oakes Quarry, Fairborn, Ohio

"A good image needs an identifiable foreground, middle ground and background." - Willard Clay

Another very early image in my portfolio. This was taken on my first visit to Oakes Quarry. At that point, I had never seen such a sparse and widespread landscape. Using a wide angle lens, I took a simple composition of the S-curve of this service road through the park. Settings included were 1/125 of a second on a tripod, f/11 and ISO 100. 24mm provided sufficient focal length to display the entire landscape.

This particular image was nothing too special. However it documented the area for future visits with better light. That view overlooking the park is too stunning to just see in a photo. You simply have to experience it yourself.
