Okay, I’m completely embarrassed to admit this but I didn’t see this image on my first pass through and did not realize that I had achieved this neat star effect from the sun. I was fooling around trying different shutter and aperture settings and was firing off shots as quickly as I could while I still had light. I shot this image with a Tamron 15 – 30 mm wide-angle lens at ISO 200 1/8 sec @ f22.
So this morning as I’m going over images for the blog I come across this image. Now I will admit that I have some plug-in filters that can accomplish the star effect but this one is totally legit. 🙂
This image was captured on my way to my final location where I shot the sunset. It was earlier in the day but I just like the way all the structures are arranged against the green hay-field. The corn crib looks to be pretty old while the barn has been refurbished with newer siding.
Not sure what it is about farm buildings that my eye is attracted to but I do enjoy making images of them.
Finally I’ll leave you with this image. I have capture this particular scene many times. It is my favorite windmill and I like the way the old shed is weathered and leaning. He keeps this old corn wagon near the shed so it’s like he is inviting me to stop and take a picture.
I heard his big dog barking at me but he must have been on a leash because he didn’t come to investigate me like he did last year. 🙂
That’s it for today. Enjoy your Thursday. Should be a good one weather wise, at least in our part of the world. Thanks for stopping by the blog and be careful.
