View 291: Boldt Castle

Boldt Castle in the 1000 Islands on the St. Lawrence River across from Alexandria Bay, New York.

Nikon D700/28-300VR, 1/200s, f/16, ISO 200, EV 0, 200mm Focal Length.

A beautiful day in the 1000 Islands deserves to be a travel poster displayed in every Travel Agency in the world…well, at least, on their websites.

On such a sunny day, I pulled out the old Sunny 16 Rule.

    I’d never heard of the Sunny 16 rule before so I clicked your link to read about it. I’m curious, what exactly does this rule accomplish? I can see that your photos are nicely lit, but what is the benefit of this rule is what I am asking, I think 🙂


    • Easy way to determine the exposure triangle of Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO. Is it the look you may want? Maybe not. It is a good and easy starting point to remember. I use it a lot when I want to get “I was there” type of photos.

    Awesome rule Scott. Never heard of it before. As you say, it’s a great starting point. And since I bracket (downward) for over exposure, I’m sure to get just the digital negative that’s perfect for touch up! Thanks again!


  3. Wonderful shot !!
