A photographic image captured with the Nikon D40x and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens in January of 2009. Driving along route 70 between Frederick and Breezewood, the light began to do the most amazing thing. I pulled off of the highway as quickly as I could, my goal to find something visually appealing to put under the amazing sky that was developing in front of me. A sweet red barn did the trick.

Much editing .. including hdr in Phototmatix, and some work in Nikon Capture NX2, Adobe Camera Raw, Photomatix CS4 and 5.
