Nikkor P C 105mm f/2.5, Nikon...


The Salisbury Town Forest was originally designated as the town's school lot, and early in the 19th century one of the first schools in town was built near the lot's western border. Parts of the dry laid stone foundation have survived two centuries of freeze-thaw cycles and decades of garbage dumping. A large white pine is rooted in one side of the foundation, and other white pines have colonized what was once the school yard. A black birch grows from the cellar's floor.

Notes: I used a Nikon D40 with Nikkor P C 105mm f/2.5 lens at f/32, ISO 200, NEF. 35mm equiv is 157mm. Shutter speed was altered between 0.5 (top 2 rows) and 0.8 (bottom 2 rows) seconds. Two second shutter delay was initiated by wireless remote. Field of view set to 9.8 degrees. Exposure, color balance, vibrance, and saturation of photos were tweaked in Lightroom before outputting jpegs for stitching.
