This was taken from the car as Chip was driving up to Glacier Point in Yosemite. I was going through an obsessive photographer thing about missing shots as we zipped past. So I took out my camera, I started shooting images. I threw away 100+ duds but there is a handful of interesting images that resulted. Also, I made myself car-sick taking these images.
On a technical note, this image was not manipulated in Photoshop except for a levels adjustment. This image was taken through a car windshield and the camera was hand-heldw with aperture of f/22 and with a shutter speed of 1.3 seconds. I did auto-focus probably on the yellow bush on the left before pressing the shutter. My camera’s auto-focus mode does detect movement of the focus point and try to track with that movement. I believe that predictive auto-focus gives the stuttering/streaky quality to this image.
