Canon 1Dx, 70-200mm, 200iso, f7.1, 1/400th, Aperture Priority NHRA pro stock winner Jeg Coughlin Jr (right) talks with runner up Allen Johnson following the final round matchup at the Auto Plus Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway.

Its amazing at what type of beauty I see everyday in my travels around town, the state, the country and even the world. Good thing I brought my camera!
