I find these "obstructions" to be atmosphere, not obstruction, which, by my definition is an opaque solid object that most often can be avoided by better selection of photo location.

On another subject, Are you really from the Colebrookdale area? While some folks in western PA use the term "y'uns", no one from north of the Mason-Dixon Line says "y'all".
