Canopy Road

I shot this on film this morning on my way to drop off the roll. This was the last shot. I was driving through this road with a canopy of moss-covered oaks and the light beckoned me to pull over and shoot the last couple of shots on the roll.
This literally made me catch my breath. :) Amazeballs! You should tag it film-challenge2012!

I remember when I saw these first time ever in FL. They are incredibly cool and so is your shot. Amazing!

Ahhh, the Spanish moss, Live Oak, or whatever they called is when I lived there. Never saw it until I moved there. Reminds me of the area by the Ribault Club, near Ft. George by my old place.

@cluvlj Chris, the photo above was taken on Amelia Island just south of the airport. But this photo was taken within 300 yards of the Ribault Club: http://365project.org/hamptanner/365/2012-01-28

@hamptanner I liked that image when I saw it the other day. When I went there one day, and the old Plantation, I think I got about 1,000 insect bites on my legs alone. Perhaps I wasn't prepared. Ahhh... us transplants!

@hamptanner by the way, I have some awesome pics of that Chapel by the Ribault Club. The light was perfect at that moment. Must find that file! (Note to self, scour August 209 files!)

@cluvlj True about the insect. We were out there for about 20 minutes in the late afternoon and we felt so itchy when we got home, we both took baths before dinner.

This is just beautiful! What film camera did you use for this shot?
posted February 2nd, 2012  
@adventuregal @peterdegraaff @cmc1200 @tamalita @stiggle @flagged @lindenswhite @berni @sabrinaromahn @adobewaters @limpet365 Thank you so much! @eudora Diane, I am using a Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm film camera that my mom handed down to me since she no longer uses it. It is great because all of my Canon lenses work with it. I have only shot two rolls with it so I am still learning how it interprets exposure so I can get what I want out of it and rely on its internal meter to some extent.
