Miami #2

I had hoped for more clouds in the western sky for a more dramatic sunset, but what the heck -- it's Gettysburg and there are so many places to photograph. I had Miami pose for me in the grassy fields north of the peach orchard. I added some fill in post-process because using a flash here would've made its presence too obvious.

The Sherfy barn, which sits next to Emmitsburg Road, is the red building in the background.

The leash was digitally removed in case you were wondering.

(Shot with the Nikon D300 using the 10-24mm zoom; manual mode; 20mm, 1/60 second at f/4.5 and ISO 200; auto white balance; center-weighted metered; +1 exposure compensation; shot in RAW and imported into Lightroom.)


  1. Just gorgeous. I LOVE the Gettysburg shots. Hope we get there next year. This year we're not going anywhere (sob).

    1. there are so many places in the battlefield that you can photograph. i always wanted to see what it looked like around sunset as i never had the chance to do so until this year.

  2. I LOVE this! Oh, that barn in the background is just perfect. It's a scene that I've been looking for around here, because it really typifies life here for us. That's really a fantastic image!
