Default Autumn in the Bluegrass

I managed to get my lazy butt out of bed before sunrise to get out during "the golden hour". I drove for the better part of 45 minutes before I found these. I think the drive was worth it! I found out that even this far out, people are in such a rush. The roads I took were just 2-lane (one in each direction) and much of it is no passing so, I didn't have the luxury of a leisurely drive to truly set up a tripod and shoot with the E-410. These were taken from the car window with the SP590.

There is no EXIF data with your pics, but Im guessing you used a slow shutter speed and didnt use a tripod. The second pic looks like a digital enlargement of the first pic. And it clearly shows camera shake or focusing problem.

Hmmmmmmmm... wonder how that happened. No tripod. As stated, I shot these from the car window.... engine running and foot on the brake. Second one is zoomed in.

Default Bluegrass

Most interesting pictures and colors, gjtoth:

I always thought (without wondering why...) that 'Bluegrass' was a musical genre, but now I see that it actually exists - in your shot #1!

Thank you for sharing!

This is the story of my life in autumn. While driving around the locality, going shopping, but with the camera at hand, it's horribly uncommon for the colours, the lighting, and a suitable parking place to coincide. Going on foot is better, but even living here in the English countryside the slowness of getting there makes the coincidences required less likely.

I've lost count in the last two months of the number of times glorious light has vanished behind cloud just as I got the shot composed. The best autumn colours I've managed this year were from our own bathroom window, and horribly constrained by the surroundings.

Yes, indeed! It very much exists... in great quantity

The longer I remain with this hobby, the more I'm finding that to be true. Which means we have to get out more to increase the odds in our favor.

Thanks, y'all, for taking the time to look & comment.

Thanks very much, Suzie! Most of this was gone in the next day's wind and rain.

I think some of the problems here is too much PP and also try re-sharpening the web files to make them look sharp again??
