It has been so long since I've been on a good road trip I was really enjoying our drive from Sacramento, CA to Reno, NV. Donner Pass had some recent snow and was looking beautiful.
Please do not take photos while driving. I am a bad example.
I like this photo because the sides of the photo look blurry, while the middle of the photo is sharp. There really wasn't any trick to this but the blurry parts were passing the edges of the frame. The scene directly in front of us wasn't changing as fast so it looks more in-focus. If I was going twice as fast it would be more blurry on the edges.
I shoot in P mode most of the time. It basically does everything automatic but I'm able to do some manual adjustments (Auto mode in most cameras doesn't allow manual adjustments)
