Old Reservoir, Fairly New Waterfall

 Fiddling with the camera.  Above and below the Carl Dicapo Fountain by the Eastern entrance to Cliff Drive.    Above, Nikon D800, 24-70mm lens at 35mm, ASA 100, manual focus and used live view to eliminate camera shake from the mirror.  F22 at 1/4th.    Below, same settings but ISO 50, and 1/2 second.  70mm.  Tripod.
 The old City Reservoir also in Kessler Park.  Seven photos stitched together.  ISO 100, F5.6 at 1 125th.   Handheld.
The folks in Pendleton Heights have been working to clear the Reservoir of brush... but it's a bruising task.... this structure is huge...operated roughly from 1920 to 1925 it was used to furnish water for industrial purposes to the East Bottoms.
