With the prodigious rain of recent months finally abating for a few days recently, we have been trying to get out and about a bit.
One evening we drove along some rural roads. Photo ops weren't exactly plenteous, but we were enjoying the drive regardless (as opposed to irregardless 😄 ).
I spotted an interesting farm pathway off to my left, did a little reversing and pulled in. Up the incline there sat an barn. Now, since I was already trespassing, I chose not to go all of the way up to the barn but took this shot looking up the path towards it, which I quite like.
We didn't linger long, but on our way out, I took this shot of just the light on the field, which was to the right in the above photo. I don't love it, but the softness has some appeal.
A little farther up the road, I saw the sun lowering behind a barn, and I managed to catch it partly obscured by the roof. If you use a smaller aperture in a case like this, you may get rays, which I did to some extent in this photo.
I also took a vertical shot, but I don't like it as much.
A little later on a different, I saw the sun even lower beyond a fence. Since there is a Happy Fence Friday meme on Flickr, I sometimes take fences just because. Taking photos directly into the sun will most often result in flares. Sometimes, I like flares although I don't think they work all the well in this image.
So, all in all, it was a pleasant rural drive, and I got two photos that I quite like, even though neither is exactly an award winner. 😊
