Artist's Description

This young Amish couple was racing up the snowy hill in an open buggy. It immediately made me think of an odd phrase… “Amish Hot Rod”!

She was holding the big umbrella over both of their heads as he was “encouraging” the horse around a sharp turn.

This action shot was captured just east of Clarkstown, PA, in the beautiful Muncy Valley region.


Uncropped, Untouched Original Photo

The photo was shot “handheld” through my windshield, with a Canon EOS 10D DSLR camera fitted with a Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L telephoto zoom lens @ 35mm focal length. The shutter speed was 1/125th sec at f/9.5. The camera’s ISO was set to 100.

Unfortunately, my camera was locked on to a heavy tripod when this unusual sight appeared in front of me, so I had to wrestle the whole contraption up to my eye to catch the shot.

No chance to change any settings… just a quick grab, aim, manually focus and shoot! (…the lens was still in “manual” from the last photos I had taken.) The shutter speed was too slow to totally “freeze” the motion, but I like the “energy” that the slight blur portrays.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.
