Last week I posted a dronie view of the Red River from Orchard Glen Park. While we were at the park to use the drone, I grabbed some cellphone pics as well. Shot on the same day, here’s a more “up close and personal” view of the lake from the shoreline. This day found the river a beautiful blue color. All of the other shots captured earlier in the season featured the usual muddy brown river. It was so calm there was nary a ripple on the surface giving a great reflection of the trees and sky.
About the photo: Captured on my Samsung S20U, the camera was set to automatic exposure. The system chose f/1.8, 1/530 sec. and ISO-18. It picked well. I usually import images into Luminar after tweaking the clarity and contrast curve in Lightroom. For this shot, I couldn’t improve on the image in Luminar to where I thought it looked better than the minor tweaks I made in Lightroom, so after minimal adjustments, I submit for your review this image of the Red River of the North.
