This beautiful road is one of my favorite parts of the drive to our cabin in Pennsylvania. To the right is Chappell Field, a part of Blue Knob State Park on the extension of Pavia Road (4035), and is frequently the site of fairs and concerts and happy picnickers. Over my shoulder and between the trees is a magnificent view of the valley which I’ve tried to capture over and over again … one of these days I’ll get it right.
Image taken on October 11, 2009 with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens. UV and CP filters attached. Shutter 1/320, f/9.0, exp. 0.00, iso 1600. Post processing work included hdr in Photomatix from a single hand-held image at +/- 2 created in Photoshop. Other tweakings included deletion of a hideous flat white cloud, area filled with blue and addition of fluffy clouds (thank you Obsidian Dawn for the cloud brushes) in Photoshop, plus the addition of two textures … thank you to Princess of Shadows at Deviant Art.
