Busy Spider

I thought spider webs were a Lakeside specialty (see 9/20/2009) but it turns out they are more of an Ohio thing. The area out behind the Visitor Center at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, in the brush beyond the boardwalk where the Astor and Goldenrod are in bloom, is just full of them. This morning, the dew was turning them into webs of light. There was no direct sun on the area yet so light levels were low, and the ISO on this shot is pushed up to 320. Still, not bad.

Sony DSC H50 at about 340mm equivalent. F4.5 @ 1/125 @ ISO 320. Programed auto.

My basic added Clarity and Vibrance in the Presence panel in Lightroom. Blackpoint well to the right. Highlights well to the right in the Tone Panel to bring up the web. Cropped from the right to aid composition (to put the center of the web off the center of the frame).

From Lakeside OH.

And here is another. This one is cropped heavily from top and bottom to show just the web.

Looking like a net cast for light...
