Somewhere in Forks Township

After I dropped off my son at school, I took a ride north this morning to Forks Township, Northampton County, an agricultural-based community located between the Bushkill Creek and the Delaware River, about 20 miles north of Durham Township. The skies were wide open and gorgeous today, but the 25-mph winds made it hard to walk around too much without freezing my face off! Anyway, there's some beautiful -- and very endangered -- open space up that way. Go see it while you still can.

I don't know specifically where this shot was taken, hence the title. I got myself good and lost this time around. But it's at a section of road with a very hairy turn - so coming from either direction you see one of those giant arrow signs. Hopefully. :)

Post-processing: Shot with the 5D at 17mm, ISO 50, 1/160s at f/9. Multiple curves adjustments, saturation/desaturation of selected colors, some light blending in 'multiply' mode, added some vignetting for focal purposes, light burning/dodging.

Thanks again for all the good wishes on the Bloggies nomination. You can vote up until January 31st. Please be sure to take a look at the work of my three other friends who were nominated in the "Best Photography in a Weblog" category: Ryan Keberly of The Snowsuit Effort, Rannie Turingan of Photojunkie and Dave Nightingale of Chromasia. Absolutely great stuff!

Thanks for stopping by!



wow! good contrasts, nicely processed sky, very confusing marks :)

An exceptional super-wide angle shot! I love the gnarly tree reaching out,as it to point the way home.

Getting lost is one of my favorite things to do when I have my camera. I've found some great photo opps when I didn't know where I was.
