Not so much thoughts as just some images of the week that didn’t make the first cut. Not that I didn’t like them. It was just that there were other images I wanted to work with and present first.
I saw this pond on the South side of the road on the way back to the office from Cedar Rapids. Just the way the pond fit into the lay of the land really intrigued me so I did my usual U-turn and headed back. What also made this scene special was there were some horses just to the right of the pond as you see it here.
As I change perspective and shot the pond from different angles so I could incorporate the horses it really made a nice farm scene. I didn’t seen anything unusual in my view finder so I took about 8 – 10 images of the pond in the fore ground with the horses (which were actually pretty close by the pond.)
The problem was when I was processing the images and did a close inspection of the horses that I noticed they have really been neglected. One of them had what looked like sever sores on his face, their coats were mangled and tangled. They just looked like they hadn’t been taken care of for months. So I deleted all the horse pictures so I would have to look at them. Very sad.
Finally this little shed, which is located on the same property as the barn. I was walking back to the car after making 70 images of the barn and saw this little guy with this tree behind it against the brilliant blue sky and snapped this one image. I really liked it so it made the post. 🙂
Enjoy your weekend. Stay warm and dry and be careful. Oh and thanks for stopping by.
