Fall colors - old train tracks
I have shot tens of thousands of fall images over the last 25 years, seems I have no need for any more. Of course, when the colors start to spring forth, I still get excited and go shoot.
Years ago, the government in its infinite stupidity decided the train tracks needed to go, the decision created a lot of negative consequences, such as premature road destruction by heavy load-laden trucks. The only benefit to most if from this momentous thinking was a comprehensive system of trails for four-wheelers, bicycles and motorbikes - and great walking pathways.
Anyway, I am slowly developing a love-hate relationship with my Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, but its image quality always is assuredly excellent. Works well on the D80 as the AF is reasonably fast and postive.
