Still gloomy around here but headed south to Shakertown Saturday morning to see if i could find some fall foliage around the place. It drizzled but over all it was a good day.
Pleasant Hill, Kentucky, USA, is the site of a Shaker religious community that was active from 1805 to 1910. Following a preservationist effort that began in 1961, the site, now a National Historic Landmark, has become a popular tourist destination. Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, or Shakertown, as it is known by residents of the area, is located 25 miles (40 km) southwest of Lexington, in Kentucky’s Bluegrass region. It is a National Historic Landmark District.

    I like the vibrant fall colors in some of your recent photographs. And you’re absolutely right, shooting sporting events takes practice, practice, practice.
