Summer is officially over and mornings are marked by blankets of crystal clear dew covering the landscape. Sunrise produces the clear and intense light of fall and mists rise from low lying areas.
Soon the dew will transform itself to crystalline frost. There are scenes of incredible beauty all around us. Unfortunately for me, alot of these scene lie in areas inaccessible for methodical photography - - no shoulders on the road to pull off and compose a shot. I am left with what I'll call "stop sign photography", out the side or front window of a car. "Stop sign photography" is somewhat of a misnomer, because many times I'm not stopped. It's a special form of photography involving framing the shot blindly and using a special skill that involves pushing a button with the right hand and driving with the left. Don't try this at home, and as always, do as I say not as I do.
