Southwest corner, Page county, Shenandoah........... cold, but just right for winter hunting.

Thanks, that is pretty much how I shoot baseball except I use 'slow fire mode' with the wheels set same, rear = aperture & front = exp comp. I have used single focus point and the 'star multi' with the better results coming from the single point. White markings & white uniforms = synonymous

Hey Greg,

Another great series of Spingers doing what they love to do (as well as Greg doing what he loves to do).
I also took a look at your gallery on Smugmug. I love looking at your work as it reminds me of a Trout Club that I belong to here.. We lease our lands to a hunt club and in the Fall the woods are alive with hunters and their dogs working the fields to flush out a Pheasant. It's actually quite interesting to see the synergy between dog and hunter working together. Especially a dog that's a veteran. But then, you already know that.

Thanks for your tip on setting the front wheel to control exposure bias. Hadn't thought of that.
