Stalking the rolling hills of northeast Ashe Country, North Carolina, I found this cool light about 30 minutes before sunset. I suspect the lines were plowed into the hillside for crops before it was later fenced off to keep cows. For the best viewing experience, click to view a high resolution version of the composition.
“On the winding roads of Route 20 in Orange County, Virginia stands a century-old train depot, home to the local Montpelier Station, Virginia post office. On February 21, 2010, it became the home of James Madison’s Montpelier’s newest exhibit— The Montpelier Train Depot: In the Time of Segregation. In 2008, the Montpelier Foundation undertook a one-year renovation of the Depot. They restored the Depot to the way it was in the 1910s in order to document a time of legalized segregation in Virginia and throughout the United States”
As much as anything this was a test of my new Panasonic Lumix GX85 and the tiny Olympus 9-18mm lens. At 9mm I see just a hint of barrel distortion, but not enough for me to worry about. This was handheld at f7.1 and 1/30 of a second. The in-body stabilization has proven very effective. I’m happy.
