The Scenic Route

I drive by this view in Somers, NY several times a week and since summer started I've been telling myself that I have to bring my camera with me so that I can capture the vibrant colors.

I finally did on Friday and luckily enough it was a sunny day. In a classic display of Murphy's Law, as soon as I started taking pictures with my Nikon Coolpix 990, the low-battery warning light came on. What then happens is that the camera automatically shuts off.

So for several minutes I did this dance of turning on the camera and trying to focus and take a picture before the camera shut off.

I wasn't too successful, but I think the above shot came out pretty decent. I'll have to buy some AA batteries and try it again another day...
