A River Runs Through It

Lori Ditlefsen October 27, 2003

I'll add that the mountain is Mt Rainier and this was taken yesterday on our way home from the Tacoma Dome Holiday Food and Craft Fair, which was a lot fun, but they asked that no pictures be taken inside! (got a couple anyway) #69869

Murry Grigsby October 27, 2003

Well I can't find the 60MPH shutter speed anywhere on my camera :0) Pretty amazing image for speeding by in a car, Lori!! #247234

Lori Ditlefsen October 27, 2003

Thank you Rober, Brinn, Susan and Murry.

Murry for shots in the distance, sport mode works really well while traveling. Of course I recommend that you not shoot and drive. LOL I cropped out the siderail that was speeding by the bottom of the photo. I also too off some empty sky at the top, which then made for a nice pan shot.

Thanks All! #247248

Hi, Lori,
After receiving your kind message, I ran back through your gallery (to see what I've missed, and I've missed a lot!). I was really taken with this photograph (so clear, so colorful, so MAGESTIC!). I think you should promote it in your area! It must be many people's backyard view! I also love "Life in a Bottle Cap." Amazing. I'm so happy to see that you have FUN with your camera. Happy shooting!

Another one taken at 60MPH going N on I-5 from Tacoma, WA. This is crossing the puyallup river around 3pm, sunny day. Camera on Sport mode to stop action. Cropped and touched up in Digital Image Suite and framed in Photo Impact.
