What 3 Stops Looks Like

What exactly does a ‘stop’ look like?

I wondered a bit while I was shooting the LC-A all Sunny 16 like, so I shot 3 quick frames of a treetop from the top of the parking garage I sometimes walk up/down/around during my ‘lunch break’ at work. It was around high noon and in full sun, but the light was a bit hazy, in that way it gets here in North Texas in the first cool days of fall.

And that’s 3 stops for you… I think f/11 was near enough to goldilocks for this one.
