Iron Kettle

The deep blue morning sky reflects off rain water in this cast iron cauldron. The kettle slowly fills each year as fall turns to winter. By January, a thin sheet of ice will float on the surface when the mercury dips below freezing.

The kettle is located in the yard of the El Dorado County Historical Museum.

Shot settings: f/5.6, 1/30 second shutter speed, 47 mm focal length, ISO 200 in aperture priority.


  1. Your photos are wonderful. I love the food shots with the train accessories (dof) in the background.

    Hey! Did you know Placerville has a camera club that meets once a month? Go here for info:

    I just joined a couple of months ago and it's a fairly good sized group.

  2. I'll have to check the camera club out. I've seen your references to it on your blog ... thanks, Steve.
