The exif data says 8:54PM, but my camera was still on Arizona time. This was taken at 10:54PM in Albert Lea, MN, on the way to Allison, IA. That's mom pumping the petroleum in the background.

This is more of an artistic shot with the high contrast; hope you enjoy!

I think I lost the battery charger for my camera somewhere in eastern South Dakota, so I may need to order a new one soon.

Heh, like it. A very different style of shot for you.

Really enjoyed all your recent landscape stuff - and the King of Zion. :)

Nice variation from your other photos. Way to mix things up a bit with something a little more modern. Very nice shot of an otherwise mundane subject.

This really is a good shot. I like the bright on dark - very effective. Wonderfully rich colors accented by the overall darkness - good job with the levels.
