Drive By Photography

Just a few shots taken while driving that turned out fairly well, considering.

Sometimes stopping just isn’t an option, like when on a narrow road with a fair amount of traffic and a shoulder roughly the width of your tire.  The tree was a gimmie, we were stuck in a slow moving line on our way to entering Custer state park.  The deer was a little more difficult as I wasn’t really prepared to snap a shot of a fast moving animal and my shutter speed is lagging a bit here.  Hence the slight blur.

I have no idea why I get to so excited to see deer, since they are pretty much everywhere in this country, other than it is nice to see them alive and running through streams rather than smooshed on the roadside.

    I had a similar experience with a deer about a week ago here in Massachusetts where I live, while out on a picnic with my wife. I reside in a pretty urban area, so it’s always good to interact with nature. I love this picture not only because of the deer, but the scenery is also beautiful. The rotting tree behind the deer is a main focal point also. Anyhow, great photo!

    I also love the title to your blog! It had me LMAO…!

      Thank you very much for the compliments! I love deer, not sure why so they’re so dang common, but they have so much elegance and grace for such a large animal.

      I’ll be happy to stop by and offer some critiques, though I am by no means a professional 😉
