Autumn Road

I love it! That is great! I am guessing a road less travelled, or you wouldn't be in the middle of it. :)

It was definitely a low-traffic area. Yesterday I embarrassed myself pretty good. I was standing next to a street and I wanted to go out into the street to get a shot. I waited for traffic to pass and I stepped out into the street and started shooting. I promptly FORGOT that I was in the street and just kept shooting, thinking that I was on the sidewalk. After I leisurely finished my shooting, I looked up and saw a line of cars waiting for me to finish and get out of the way. Boy was I embarrassed.

Beautiful. The lush green in the background, the melting oranges and reds in the forefront....

Heather said...

That may be the most breathtakingly beautiful photo I have ever seen. You are wonderful.

Stacey said...

Man, that's funny! I get a lot of strange looks when I am taking pictures around town.

Beautiful photos here. I came from Sharon's site. I'll be back.

That's a great shot. I like the color and perspective. I'd love to see it at higher resolution!

I just made a 19 inch print from this file. It's very difficult to tell that it's not from my professional digital SLR. This was shot with the 350 dollar Fuji F10 that I discussed in previous posts. I'm really impressed.

Yes, a beautiful picture. But, I gotta tell ya' that as a biker (motorized type) who regularly travels the backroads of KY, OH, & WV that picture made me cringe just a bit. I don't like leaves on backroads, especially if I think they've a bit of moisture underneath.

Slippery stuff in a fast curve!

Rick Lee said...

Oh yeah. I'm a non-motorized biker myself. In the fall I stick with mountain biking because road-biking is just too dangerous when there are leaves on the road.

Appalachian Gun Trash said...

Hey, neat link! I bookmarked it. I'm also one of those non-motorized bikers, but not quite in your league. But, we do enjoy it and try to do our "circuit" at least 3 times a week.

We wish we'd have started sooner. It's a great way to exercise (except when the wind pops up!)

I'm a long-time lurker and admirer of your photos (and a Hunters Ridge neighbor too :o) ) Was just wondering if that's the road in Kanawha State Forest?

Rick Lee said...

Webster... no it's not. Is there a double-yellow line painted on that road in KSF? I can't recall. If you live at HR, I need for you to send me an email.

WebsterAndretti said...

I pretty sure KSF has the yellow lines, but I'm not positive. Anyway, an email is on it's way.
