A single image for you today that reflects, at least in my mind, the weather of the day.
I was on my way to one of our banks to do training and it was late in the afternoon, the sky was gray, dark and cloudy and the wind was blowing hard. I had just missed hitting a big buck deer when I came over the hill and saw this lowly old combine sitting alone in a harvested field. Its work done for another year, seemingly abandoned by its owner.
After I had passed the scene I had to turn around (my mind works slow) and photograph it. I couldn’t get close without trespassing on private property (something I won’t do) so I parked as close as I could, walked a quarter of a mile and used the 80 – 400 mm lens.
The wind was blowing between 20 – 35 mph so it was really difficult to hold the camera steady enough to get a sharp image. I had to bump the ISO up to 800 just to get 1/60 of a second shutter speed so the image has a little more noise than I prefer.
Training was over around 5:45 p.m. so it was about 6:50 p.m. when I got home. It was dark and sleeting and it occurred to me that in 4 days that would have only been 5:50 p.m. and it was dark. 😦
On that note I’ll say thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
