35th place
On the banks of the Mississippi River, which is often littered with the trunks of great trees uprooted by floodwaters upstream. An exceptionally gloomy and overcast day, with a fine drizzle; the late afternoon sun attempts to put some color into the sky. Photographer and tripod were in the river to capture this shot.

Focal length: 18 mm
Shutter speed: 1/5 sec
Aperture: F16
ISO: 200
Notes: Focus was on the barges in the background, narrow aperture gives us great depth of field to the rocks in the foreground, only a few feet away. Effects of diffraction were lessened by precise sharpening.
