Glad you stopped to look down Darryl even if it was the wrong stop! Which stop would you advise if you did it again? A 4? Glad you are on a roll and hope you have some good plans for the family shoot.
Oh and anyway I love this but PS What happened to Geneva? We havn't even heard about this in Europe yet. Ahhh I think I have it you could be referring to the convention. And yes I think they are but then this is a photography site so won't get into that.

Thank you so much for your comments and input daniel, Sergio,Terry, and Kate, hmmm, looks like we need to jump a chapter or two huh? Or maybe I better explain just reiterate my initial statement. There used to be smoke stacks across Utah Lake (GENEVA STEEL PLANT). It was a historical landscape, however, its not there anymore. They were imploded this past year. And by the way, I'm not into politics. Nice catch though Kate!!! Thank you too

Hi Darryl, In my travel I finally got to a computer. Congrats on POTD this is a sure winner. I love the gold tones the exquisite details of the grass and the way you got down and composed it to let the grass take you to the door. Excellent in all ways and the DOF is awesome. Again congrats. I'm not shooting much just driving 8 hrs a day. Back in 2006.

For the people who wrote "nice DOF" I hope you're smart enough to realize that it's not DOF, he wrote that he applied gaussian blur. he probably had bad DOF, didn't like it, the blurred it in photoshop to his liking.

otherwise nice work Darryl, and beautiful tones. congrats.
