Nanny's Tranquility...

Yesterday my photography club visited to an old maroon settlement in Portland, Jamaica. The majority of the time was spent on the hill side at a waterfall in Nanny River. It was really tranquil, and the weather was great. For that reason I think we spent more time lounging than shooting photos. Click PhotoYard to read more about our trip. Anyway we did snap a few rounds. I told the Colonel of the village that I would really like to spend a few days, to mix with the town folk and learn more about the great Maroons.

This is probably the first in our "Discover Jamaica From The Inside" Series.

The Nanny Falls

Tech Info: Camera: Nikon D200; Lens: Nikon 24-85mm f/2.8-3.5; Focal length: 35mm; Shutter: 1/2 second; Aperture: f/16; ISO: 200. Shot in RAW mode.

I also used a Circular Polarizer to cut the glare as well as a Circular ND Graduated filter. The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto tripod, and shutter released with the Nikon MC-36 remote. I adjusted the levels in Aperture, and dodged some of the shadows in Photoshop CS3.
