Things Are Looking Up

No, this isn’t a post about the economy or the current banking crisis. After seeing several examples of this type of image on Laurie Excell’s and Josh Bradley’s blogs I knew I had to give this a try.

A word of caution for those of us with a few years under our belts (that’s code for “Old Fart”), trust your tripod and your camera’s autofocus for this shot. Don’t hurt your back trying to compose this image in the viewfinder.
