- Today I was able to capture my darkest blue skies that I have ever been able to capture. The closer it is to the first day of winter, the bluer the skies seem.
- I continue to shoot in RAW/JPEG output. This outputs both a JPEG and RAW image. Sometimes I like how the JPEG was created, and sometimes I don't. If I don't like it, I can modify the RAW image, and save it as a JPEG. (If I'm running low on space I shoot in RAW. If I'm shooting a sporting event where I need the speed, JPEG is faster on my camera.)

Week 31, Day 220, November 29, 2009, Rural Cemetery
I live in a very rural area of the New York. There are many cemeteries around that date back to around the middle 1800's. I think many of them started as small family, or small community cemeteries. Many of them are in rough shape with headstones that have fallen over, and fences needing repair. It's difficult to raise the money to maintain them.
I find them interesting, and I wonder about the lives of the people who are buried there. Many of these head stones told how many years, months, and days that the people lived.
This particular one is near the town of Summer Hill in upstate NY. We joke that it's called Summer Hill because that's the only time of the year that you can get there. If there is snow, Summer Hill usually has the most in the immediate area.
What places capture your attention, that not many people visit?
