Fences, Sonoma, CA

Fence, Off Napa Road, Sonoma

Black and White Again

This was taken with my Rolleiflex, ISO 400, in mid-January in Sonoma off of Napa Road. It was early morning and there was considerable frost on the grass and plants which I had hoped to capture. I was also interested in the depth of field. The Rollei is excellent in mid-range. The sinuous plant-leaves contrast with the out-of-focus pole in the background. I found the exposure forgiving. I shot at f5-f5.6 at 1/50th to 1/100th. The negative was scanned at 1200 dpi with the backlite on medium.
