It had been 5 days since I held a camera in my hand. I was having withdrawals. Between putting in some long hours at work and the weather not cooperating I just hadn’t taken any shots of anything.
I left the office this evening at 5:20 pm and my original plan was to be good, come home and get on the treadmill. But I was seduced by the setting sun and so I started thinking grain bins, silos, or barns.
I was driving hard and probably a little too fast looking for something to use as a backdrop. The sun was sinking fast and I knew in a few minutes I was going to lose it. I thought I had one more hilltop to go but it turned out that road actually went down in a valley so I was going to lose the race again.
But I came to a side road and decided on the spur of the moment to take it. I went 400 feet and saw these trees off on the horizon. The sun was already down but it was casting a bright orange light. So I fired off 8 shots and it was over.
The first image of this post is actually the last one I took and you can see it is the prettier of the two as far as rich colors are concerned.
The second image in the post was as soon as I jumped out of the car and the light was very bright and yellow. Anyway it felt good to shoot again even if it was only 8 images. I hope you like them. Have a great day and be careful.
Thanks for stopping by.
