I decided to spend the first warm day (just above freezing temperatures) out with the camera, but what to photograph? The forecast was for cloudy skies with freezing rain starting after lunch. We know how I was feeling about waterfall photography, so that was out. I was still having a lot of fun with photographing old cars, and I thought that I might go out and hunt a few of them down. With the threat of bad weather after lunch, I decided that I needed to have a bit more guarantee of subjects since I was only going to have a few hours to work with. It only seemed natural to head out to White's Service Station in Germanton for the morning. I know that they have a bunch of vintage iron in the yard that I can play with.
Honestly, I was really wondering if I was going to get anything worth while since the sky was staying pretty much crystal clear as I walked from one end of the yard to the other. There were a bunch of really interesting cars to be seen, but the problems I was running into was the lighting, and the proximity of the cars to other cars. In the cases where cars were grouped around other cars of a similar era I was good. However, far too often, I was finding great cars surrounded by some late model vehicle, usually import. This became very problematic, and with the light dictating the direction that I could shoot, I was really starting to lose hope.
