Somewhere in Forks Township

PHOTO INFO
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!

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.
