Driving down the road headed towards town my eyes go back and forth across the landscape, always scanning ... not really for anything in particular, yet looking for something. A fresh new landscape photograph is always at the back of my mind. With that search also comes the hope that I'll have the ability to pull over in a safe spot and get the shot I see.
On this particular morning everything was just perfect. Not only did my eyes see this scene ... a scene that I've noticed many times ... but stopping worked out perfectly. The road was wide and there wasn't a car barrelling down behind me.
I stopped the car, looked out the window, backed the car up about another twenty feet and got out of my car. I looked out at the scene taking in every tree, paying attention to what the shot would be like once taken. I then walked a little further down the road ... just another ten to fifteen steps and this was the spot. Pulling my camera up to my eye I took the shot. Now to get home and hopefully once on the computer screen it truly is the shot I was looking for.
Such a process ... but one I love. Thanks for taking the time to look and read. :)
