This is a catch-up post of sorts; the photos of Fred G. Bond Metro Park were taken early last October, and I'm only now getting around to processing them and assembling them for a blog post. For a full gallery of the shots I took at Fred Bond Metro Park for this post, visit my site at SmugMug.com.
Photo geek stuff: The photos you see here were taken over two days -- the afternoon of Oct. 2 and the morning of Oct. 3, 2017. In both shoots, I used my Canon 6D and Tamrom 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD lens equipped with a B+W polarizing filter. I took three exposures of each composition for later possibly melding into one with Photomatix high-dynamic range (HDR) software, although not all the photos you see here are HDR renditions.
Above: The park is named for Fred Bond, who was Cary mayor from 1971-83 and had served on the town council for six years before that. He died at age 68 in 1997. Bond was particularly passionate about recreation, so the town named the park in his honor in 1981.
