Road Trip Photography

Road & Track

Another photo from my Jeep. This was taken on River Road, just north of Berkeley Springs, WV and right across the Potomac River from Hancock, MD.

I guess I was doing about 50 mph when I took this shot, through the front windshield, with my P&S camera. The ISO was 100 at 1/400 @ f/5. In Photoshop Elements I color corrected the image, added a little vignetting, resized it for web viewing and gave it a smidgen of sharpening.

I love the way the colors came out, the shadows and the blue sky with the white clouds. I've discovered that with my P&S, at least, when I photograph something from the side or with the sun to my back I get the best photos, and this one was with the sun from the side.

This is just one more scene from my world and it looks like it could have been taken from almost anywhere in the world in any rural setting.

Yeah, this is my world and you are welcome to it.
