    As always, enjoying your camera work. Rt72 east out of Hendricks is da bomb.

    Oh, I also saved one of those recently. He was crossing the street and taking his time.

    And a few weeks earlier relocated this feller off the gravel in Moshannon State Forest. Same snake in each photo, different lighting.

    My sense of decorum is without peer. :D


    Thanks Jeff. How come the snake's tail is all blurry? :lol3


    I would love to find a little place to retire to up there in that high valley around Rich Patch, it's fantastic up there. :nod

    From Eagle Rock we took 43 over through Buchanan and up to the BRP, another very nice road. 80 miles on the BRP down to Tuggle's Gap was kind of a grind, but it was worth it to stay up high, out of the heat.

    We saw this down near Ridgeway, someone had some bad luck.

    80 miles on the BRP.

    That's 50 miles more than I can endure on the BRP.

    Nice photography! I may steal some of your "tactics". I like the way you incorporate fences and other things in the foreground to give the photo more personality. I usually make it a point to avoid those.
    I got my photos all saved in Smug Mug and will get them up to see shortly. Maybe more video in August, as I have to send them to YouTube.

    Thanks Kyle, I'm trying to do a better job with my composition.

    BTW, I wanted to put out a public "thank you" to you for doing the coffee, it was great. :thumb

    I believe my manners are lacking as well. That coffee pot in the morning is fantastic. Thank You.

    WV is the top secret riding place of the entire country. Thanks for all of these great pics! However, I'd like to know what device did you use to "relocate" the rattler? Me personally, I'd prolly used about a 27 foot stick...
