10/26/08 - Autumn on Skyline Drive

10/26/08 - Autumn on Skyline Drive

My annual fall Skyline Drive image. Here's 2007 - - and 2006 - - all taken from the same spot (I used the trunk of the tree at the right edge of today's PAD to frame the 2006 image).
I'm a volunteer photographer for the national park service and they've used one of my fall images for the Shenandoah Park's fall visitor's guide each of the past two years.
Photography on this day was like shooting in a monsoon - the wind carried the rain horizontally at times.
I am in the process of duplicating my PBase galleries at SmugMug - see today's PAD at
I will post at both sites for the foreseeable future (10 months left on my PBase subscription)

Nikon D300
1/40s f/9.0 at 20.0mm iso800 full exif

Lovely light and colour! No-one would believe a "monsoon" was happening. Well done.

Boy, it was worth shooting in a "monsoon" to capture that glorious light and color. The textures are exquisite.
