    That's what I love about where I live in New England. Its extremely rare that I see another photographer when I am shooting.

    I love that barn, but I've seen so many shots of it. I like to photograph things that no one else does. There is beauty in the everyday and mundane!!

    Keep 'em coming!! Despite my C&C, I personally love minimalism. Some of my favorite shots have been very minimalistic. They often don't get very positive reviews on forums like this, but I love 'em anyway...

    Sorry for posting so many shots...

    I can't believe how many people are here with all manner of digital cameras, with a few film cameras mixed in. Jackson used to be relatively slow in September, but not now.

    The Moulton Barn is probably one of the most photographed barns in the world, and there's a reason for it. It's rare, maybe even impossible to find that kind of barn in the foreground with as spectacular scenery in the background.

    I do agree it's overdone though. I took the shot over at Schwabacher's Landing and then decided to scout over to Mormon Row, then, the large crowd attracted my attention. The barn is pretty much a grab shot, I didn't really plan on getting anything except for some ideas for the next morning.

    Thanks, taken with perhaps my favorite lens, the 60 macro. That lens is a gem.

    Sad, isn't it?

    The only time I usually encounter other photographers is when I travel. I hate taking photos where other people are shooting the same scene - I just don't enjoy it. I like to be the only photog taking the shot, which is why I often shoot scenes like this....

    I like to be the only photog too, doesn't work at all here. Used to be I was the only one getting up at 5am, or one of the few, now everyone is doing it, or at least making the attempt(most did arrive at the landing after the real color was over).

    I wish I had a better eye, I run right by shots like you take: always trying to find the grand landscape with the best light.

    More on my Flickr and Belly Dancers and Sword Fighting will be up soon!
