While that battle was going on in July, 1863, my great-great grandfather was in the process of being captured just outside Vicksburg, Mississippi.
My brother was actually a park ranger at Gettysburg and the Eisenhower Farm for probably about 10 years. I've probably seen as much of it as I care to for that reason, but it'll definitely be worth the trip for you.

I'd like to say that the cold and snow should be well behind us by then, but with the way this Winter is going I make no guarantees!

Things are starting to pop in Oregon. Will be more to choose from in a couple weeks but here's an initial go at it.

Purty! I like where you placed the focus in that last shot. Which lens were you using?

I used the Leica 45mm f2.8 on all of them. I'm trying to get more familiar with the lens. The last image was handheld at 1/100 sec, f9 and ISO 2500. Processed in LR including a crop and (you guessed it) noise reduction. Also, on your nod I've been using the Huelight profiles. Applied the Standard profile to the purple flower.

I've been seeing pictures of all the ice on Lake Michigan. In the deep freeze right now. Incredible.

Default Capital Mall at night

Both sides of the capital mall have walks lined with ornamental cherry trees. Everyone floods there during the day because it is a beautiful sight. A little more deserted at night though.

The first three are single raw files processes in LR. The last two are 3 image HDR. All shot with the Zuiko 12-40mm.
