Took the long way home from the grocery store again yesterday evening and went by this lovely old barn (Montgomery County, Maryland). As the shadows grew long, I noticed the light was doing that magical thing it sometimes does. So glad I had my camera!!!

Image taken on March 7, 2009 with the Nikon D40x and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens. Shutter 1/640, aperture f/5.3, exposure -0.33, iso 400. Post processing included removal of some power lines in Photoshop and a trip to Photomatix.

    Wow Lois my kind of life LOL this is beautiful love the warm colors and light. The lone way home paid off, outstanding !!!

  • Thanks, Curtiss!!!!! The funny thing is, I’d been gone for a couple of hours … once I get into town I usually run several errands at once. And when I got back into the car after this shoot, my cell phone was ringing … my son … “where are you?” OH how I didn’t want to admit I was out barn chasing again!!! ROFL!!!

    Beautiful capture, Lois. The evening sunlight lit this just right and you captured it perfectly. Well done.
  • Thanks, Mick, dear!!!! Oh it was a gift!!! When I left the house a couple hours earlier, I was so irritated with the light I nearly didn’t even bring the camera. We had had a high cloud cover and the light, while strongish, was all nasty white and glare-y!!! As I stared for home I was so thrilled with the gold light … that was why I turned off and went down this country road!!! WHEEE!!! A gift!!!!
