My first HDR with my new Nikon D80 :excited:

This was also my first visit to the gravel pits outside Winnipeg which was a little adventure of its own. There are a few gravel companies out there, all private property and gated but I found one open and drove in. I didn't see anyone around and spent an hour eargely snapping pics in this desolate apocalyptic environment. Just as I was heading out a big gravel truck pulled in and the driver rolled down his window and I was sure I was in big trouble. The first thing out of his mouth was "What year is that car?? That's a mighty hot number for a little lady like you to be driving." :rofl: We spent the next half hour happily chatting and I drove off with some amazing shots :D

:) That's the one nice thing about living on a prairie. Lots of flat land, but endless skies and enormous clouds :lol:

jeez, reminds me of when I was little, and used to all but crawl up the back seat of the pickup truck... my step-dad used to speed along roads like that in idaho. i dunno if it was my stomach, or spirit that wanted out, LOL!

:rofl: Probably a little of both. Seems like those roads were made to drive with reckless abandon :D
