There was some serious fog that was just breaking as I pulled over so I used Cloudy white balance in post processing. LikeLike Reply I find foggy conditions offer incredible light & color, providing you have sufficient light for your subject. I didn’t notice the fog in the background until you told me. Good shot!

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Leya, I’m not sure exactly what he was doing but since the Amish don’t have video games he needed something to keep him out of trouble. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Oh, so they are Amish. That explains some of the questions I had! Thank you. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply The main clue is the straw hat. LikeLike Reply Aha, thank you. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply You’re welcome Leya. Living in the heart of Amish country I didn’t even imagine that someone might not realize that. 🙂 Its hard to remember what I thought when I first moved here and saw all the buggies and horses. LikeLike Reply Even if there are many informative films about them, I guess we don’t see them often enough to get the details on the spot. When I was young I was fascinated by them, and some really good movies are staged in Amish country as well. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I used to watch a TV series called The Amish Mafia filmed here in Lancaster County. It was completely ridiculous. LikeLike Reply Never heard of it – maybe best that way? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Google Amish Mafia and you can see a clip on YouTube. LikeLiked by 1 person He’s about to say “Giddy-up” or “Mush” or some such. Notice how all the horses have one ear turned towards him waiting for instructions. This is real team work. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply He might have said Dabber Schpring! which in Pennsylvania Dutch means run quickly. In the first couple of shots there was a German Shepard along with them so it really was a team effort. Thanks Mike.
