Road Trip Photography

Stormy Road

This is the first photo in what I hope will be a continuing series of Road Trip Photos. These will be images taken from inside my vehicle as I'm driving down the road. Now don't try this at home. You must be an experienced person to achieve this level of photography.
Either that or a little on the crazy side. On my part it may be a little bit of both :-)
Anyway, this was taken on a back road in Garrett Co. I used, believe it or not, a DSLR with an 18 - 105mm lens set at 1/30 sec @f/5.6 and the ISO was 400. The lens was racked out to 105 for an equivalent setting of 157mm in length. VR does help, especially when one hand is on the camera and the other is on the lens and the left knee is on the steering wheel, and you're looking through the view finder out the front windshield in between wiper sweeps. Speed was about 25mph.
Yeah, maybe I am a little crazy :-)
But this, too, is a part of my world and, if you dare, you are welcome to it.
