I have been waiting to post this picture for some time. I noticed this old truck last winter on the side of the highway in Nelson County. I returned this past fall hoping to shoot the truck with some background color, but I was saddened to learn the vehicle had been removed. With anything that is old and in a state of decay, you’re often better off shooting it sooner rather than later.
I’m always drawn to old vehicles and this was no exception. I took the shot last winter with my Infrared Converted D200. While I took a number of shots, this one has become my favorite. It’s a rather unconventional angle to shoot a vehicle, but I’m drawn to the graphic nature of the composition.
