Totem poles are a wonderful subject. To take something a bit beyond a photo of a totem in it's environment can be a bit of a challenge. To try and get something just a little different, a photograph that shows it in a different light. I was pondering this when I walked into it's shadow.
I used the 16-80 at 24 mm, x3 exposures 1/60th-1/100th-1/160th sec f22 iso 400. this photo was taken here at the Museum of Anthropology.
