You already know I LOVE this image and the other versions I've seen as well. It is so perfectly done. Love the dark road behind the image that leads the viewer through the image and out to what lies beyond. I don't think we'll have a hard time baring with you at all as you share the magnificent versions of this. You work well under pressure apparently!! FANTASTIC!! #1064012

Paul Michko 1/26/2005 5:37:44 AM

Description

Taken along my way to the Blue Ridge Parkway in a community called Buffalo Ridge. It was very overcast and getting dark so I had to work fast. I have several different versions of this so you all bare with me. Used Velvia here ISO 50 at 40 tripod cable release, and settings of f/22 and 3 seconds.
