Tried some night photography tonight with the christmas lighting of woodburn hall ...full size images are here , all where shot in manual mode.. The pictures are of Woodburn and Olgebay Hall on the WVU campus.
On my way home from seeing my mom in the hospital, I decided to take the back road (US19) instead of the highway (I79). On the way home I saw this.... Not to many of these exist any more.. But there were two on the road home. This one is kept up a little more than the other one had been.
The small picture here does not do it justice, click on it and go for the full size one.. (might take a while as it is 10meg in size...) This is what West Virginia looks like when the leaves change color..
It has been a couple of years or more since I have seen this... The lighting sucked, but i believe it is a buzzard, and it set there like this for at least a couple of minutes.
There are a couple of other pictures on my flickr as well.
