Location: Neoga, IIllinois, USA

Camera: Nikon D90
Focal Length:85mm
Aperture: f/10
ISO/Film: 200
Shutter Speed: 1/200 sec

Note: Jim Watkins took this photo in Neoga, Illinois (wiki link). The fog rolling over the road, accompanied by sunset, makes this shot so unique. The road leading into the fog is a nice focal point, along with the power lines and corn fields. Excellent capture!

Tip: The time of day played a huge part in making this good photo a great photo. This photo would be a nice capture if taken during mid-day, but with the right mood created by the sunset and fog, makes this a great capture. Jim closed his aperture (wiki link) to f/10 to allow for a decreased depth of field and get more of the scene in focus.
