WEST BLOCTON, Ala. (WIAT) — Here is this week’s Alabama the Beautiful picture by Ron Burkett.

According to Alabama The Beautiful’s facebook post,

Ron started doing photography his senior year in high school (1979) and has enjoyed it for 40 years. He has lived in Alabama all his life. His favorite subjects to photograph are nature, wildlife and high-speed sports such as airshows and Indy car races. Ron loves experimenting with long exposure night photography to yield images that can’t be seen with the eye in real time.
