Jeanne and I went looking for a nice sunset scene yesterday, late in the afternoon. When we started out there wasn’t that many clouds but as we got closer to sunset a bank of gray clouds rolled up and spoiled the sunset that I had sought.
No matter I found a couple of farm structures that I have not photographed before including this old machine shed. I had spotted a barn (the image below) that I wanted to photograph and after I made several images of it I saw this magnificent building right in front of me. 🙂
So we continued driving West hoping the find the perfect backdrop to a sunset. Finally about 20 minutes before the sun slid below the bank of clouds I found a nice farm scene to photograph the sunset. Well it didn’t turn out all that great because frankly the sun wouldn’t cooperate with me.
So I ended up making a bunch of HDR images, which I haven’t processed yet so we’ll see how they turned out. I was a little disappointed but still happy with these images. Remember you can click on any of the images to reveal a larger version of them.
We were driving along and I pulled off the road and walked a little way to capture this image. Jeanne said, “What did you see to take a picture of?” I showed her this image on the LCD screen and she was unimpressed. I don’t care I really like it.
It’s not every day you see three cows more or less evenly spaced walking as a silhouette across a harvested field against a dynamic sky close to sunset.
At least it’s not every day for me. 🙂
Busy week ahead. I have an appointment with my Endocrinologist this morning and I’m doing employee benefit meetings this week, which means a couple of zero dark thirty departures so I’m not sure I’ll have a blog but will give it my best effort.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
