This beautiful old stone barn has always intrigued me. It’s not far from my home in Montgomery County, Maryland, but until recently was almost impossible to reach unless I wanted to walk quite a distance through many large fields. I could only catch a glimpse of it during certain times of the year … and my imagination would spin when I saw it!! In the years that I’ve lived here, a few subdivisions have grown up close by, and the barn is now accessible. It was bought and refurbished recently. Here is how it looks today … lovely … but oh … I wish I had taken that long, long walk, so long ago … to see it as it used to be.
This image was shot in May of 2008 with my Nikon D40x, using the 18-135 mm lens and the polarizing filter. Settings: shutter 1/800, ap f/14, exposure -.33. The clouds were added as a compilation. I used Photomatix to create this HDR image.
