Road Trip Photography

Steeples On Prospect

Another photo taken from the road while in my car. This image was created as I was descending the exit from I68 on the Cross Town Bridge that goes over Cumberland. I was doing about 30mph when I took this photo, using a 5mp point & shoot camera. The settings were 1/250 sec @ f/4.9, ISO was 50.

There aren't too many photos taken from this angle or this particular viewpoint and I was happy that this turned out as good as it did. I really don't advise doing this kind of photography as it can be as dangerous, if not more so, than using a cell phone or texting. However, it is challenging and fun to do, especially if you do get that once in a life time photo, and I believe that this is one of them.

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


  1. Nice capture, considering the fact you were on the move. Nice to see the MD still has color on the trees. Here in Ontario there is little left but twigs again.

  2. Lovely colors. I've also gotten some great fall colors in New York just in the last week.

    Of course, not the same range as you got. Safe travels.

  3. Just wanted to say thanks to Paul and Imran for taking the time to post the gracious comments that you did. Both of them are greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.
