Thanks for the thoughts. I used a polarizer. I also got only that one shot as a huge cloud moved over the scene and blanked out the light. I shot more in the shadow light, but they were horrible!
By the way, this photo was taken about 3 miles from my house - na-na-na-na-naaaa-na . . . . LOL!
By the way, my d70 totally died last night! no blinking lights no nothing, completely dead! Lucky for me I paid the $80 bucks for the extended Mack warrenty! So it's all boxed up and ready to go. Acctually it's not such a bad thing as I have backups AND, the camera is at the end of it's life anyway. . . Hopefully I'll get another year or two out of it after it's serviced. . .
