Water: Washing UP

f/9.5, 1/180s, 19mm (35 mm equiv 31 mm) ISO 400. Afternoon. After a sunny mid day, a big storm approached. I stopped at the lake to capture the sky. Migrant workers were washing up at the shore. Onondaga Lake is one of the most polluted lakes in the world I wondered if I should tell them. (I didn't.) I used a graduated grey filter (a real one) to help capture the sky. Still on the road.

WOW that filter worked a treat! I had all sorts of filters for my birthday but havn't got around to using them yet.
What a shame the water is so polluted. What do the migrant workers work at around there?

You really might LOVE playing with those filters if you have tme! Which did you get?

Yes, it was a dumping ground for several industries.

This is a rural area with lots of agriculture, strawberries, other fruit (blueberries etc), tomatoes, squash, beans etc. The migrant workers assist with planting and harvesting. Right now planting, but the strawberries harvest in June.
