Worldwide Photowalking Fort Fun Edition
The Fort Collins contingent met on a hot Saturday afternoon at Colorado State University for our part in the Worldwide Photowalk (over 30,000 walkers worldwide!). I sure had fun meeting you all!
My first image from our jaunt is of a fountain next to the Engineering Building that honors Elwood Mead (the same guy lake Mead is named for). I've copied the plaque's inscription below for easy reading in case there's interest.
Image notes: after hauling my tripod all over CSU I had to find a good excuse to use it! A ten stop B+W ND filter was used to obtain a 30 second exposure. Then after noticing the inscription could use more light I took two more 30 second exposures at +1 and +2 EV and blended to bring out the shadows but preserve highlights.
As a member of the Colorado Agricultural College faculty between 1883 and 1888, Elwood Mead established the first instruction in irrigation engineering to be offered by an American college or university. This work provided the foundation for Colorado State University's internationally recognized reputation in water-related research, teaching and service.
