I have driven by this spot hundreds of times over the years and always wanted to make an image but never saw the right conditions. That changed Sunday morning. I would usually go somewhere that is all nature, but a combination of getting out a few minutes too late to get anywhere and remembering that I wanted an image here convinced me to give it a try.
The light was nicely balanced with the sky not too bright to allow enough data to be collected in the foreground meadow. I was happy that, once again, no HDR was needed. There is actually enough information in the shadows to bring everything up to almost daylight exposure but that is unnecessary. The name of this farm is recent. The owner used to call it “Mad Woman Farm” but she is now a psychotherapist and “Thistlebloom” seems just a bit more appropriate.
So here is Sunday morning…with a bit of fog and a brilliant sky. Please click for a better view and a nice neutral page to display this better.If you look closely and squint, you may be able to see the name of the farm below the front window on the barn.
I am not sure what will be up next. Maybe more yard follies?
