I hope you are enjoying your Saturday. There are only 52 of them a year and they are all precious each and everyone. Yesterday I grabbed a quick sandwich and headed out to see if I could find something to shoot.
It was cloudy, gray, cold, and damp and I found some things to shoot. That is for another day. However when I left work yesterday evening the sky was just gorgeous with big puffy white and gray clouds floating in a brilliant blue sky. The sun was cutting through some of the clouds and making shafts of light through the clouds. I knew I had to find something that I could frame that sky in.
I think I got very lucky with this image. I was shooting a windmill and didn’t even see the wagon as it was over the hill. I was trying to get a better angle on the windmill when I found the wagon. I really like this image.
this is the windmill I was photographing when I discovered the wagon. I have taken images of this windmill several other times when the sky was unusual or at sunset. I think this is one of my favorites.
By the way this windmill is also the windmill that is on my header panel of this blog. That was a beautiful sky as well.
I’ll leave you with this close up of the windmill and the dynamic sky and clouds. I have several more images from the shoot yesterday at noon so I’ll be posting them either Sunday or Monday.
I captured an interesting shot yesterday at noon. I was shooting some water and this large bird kept flying over the area. I could not make out what type of bird it was but it looked like a Turkey Vulture and I wasn’t really interested in photographing one of them again. Besides I didn’t have my long lens, just my 28-300 mm.
Well he kept flying over me getting closer and closer and last night as I was processing my images it turns out it was a young eagle. So now I wish that I had taken a bunch more images of him. 😦
Enjoy your Saturday and thank you for taking the time to stop by the blog. Be careful.
