It's throbbingly beautiful, Randy. How in the world and you do HDR handheld? You must have nerves and muscles of STEEL! #6757421

Tammy, Ron, Pamela, Kathy, Carol, Daniella and Michelle, thanks. Recently I’ve had the “opportunity” to try to find representative road side and drive-by spots of Kentucky for shots. Can’t say that it’s been entirely fun, certainly a challenge, but mostly glad it’s coming to an end (as I'm parking the crutches soon :-). But I did find some interesting spots to follow up.

Hand held HDR comment: I have found that on bright sunny, high contrast days, the shutter speed plus continuous shooting & AEB +/- modes, can be fast enough. Not as sharp as tripod mounted if you have the time to set up, and certainly not close to a single shot. But I like the “apparent depth” that HDR gives, so I try it when I can. Some work, some don’t; but as we all know, the joy of digital….

Very very nice, Randy. Rich color, superb DOF and beautiful perspective. #6799799

Scenery found next to many roads in central Kentucky. The double fencing is to keep in horses. Horses might jump a single fence, but won’t try a double fence. And the stone walls are a familiar sight, many still have the original built by immigrant Irish stone masons.
