    Dog-gone-it Tyson!! you dun went and did it again :eek: :eek:
    A super photo with a startling depth-of-field ... How DOOOO you do it? ... surely not with a digital camera? :confused: :confused:

    Wait a sec! ... It was a film camera on a "B" shutter setting. I can tell coz the turkeys flew right over before the shutter closed! :D :D

    You've also got a photogenic layout, great work.

    Thanks folks :) , Errol it is a digital camera (cheap one no less). If you look close you will see the very front of the loco is a tad fuzzy. A higher $$$$$ camera would solve that. The trees in the background along with the sky is a photo I stuck there so you couldn't tell I still don't have any trees on "great stuff foam" mtn. that you would normally see :D ! interurban the sound and vibration from the loco clears the turkeys out 15 min. before the train gets there! :rolleyes:

    Really nice shot and modeling Tyson.

    So thats what it take to move them birds. I've got a non mufflerd beetle But it don't seem to phase them. I still have to stop and wait for them to cross the road in single file.:rolleyes:

    I don't blow my horn at 'em as that would be rude. :D

    Tyson... what a beautifully conceived photo! Once again, you've brought it all together: the model, the scenery, the composition, the whole nine yards. Outstanding! :cool: :)

    [Now about this wild turkey business... is that the bottled variety or the flying variety? ;) :D :D :D :D :D ]

    Ah, now I get it, the other kinda shooting. Shots. I guess shooting turkey gap is where the engineer takes his shot of wild turkey so he will have the nerve to try and make it up and over the pass? :D :D :D
