Down on the Farm

Posted by on March 5, 2012 in Blog, Landscapes | 12 comments

Good Monday morning everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was extremely busy. In a good way. I was busy out taking pics for the entire day Saturday. A new client of mine is a bit anxious for more pics of their buildings after I delivered the first batch last Monday, so I was out the door before sunrise Saturday morning. The tough part about this job is that the buildings are all over Western Pennsylvania. So getting shots of their buildings involves a lot of time driving. It does, however, offer a lot of photo opportunities of places and things I would not normally see while en route to those buildings. Sunday, of course, I was processing ALL day.

Today’s shot was taken when I took a wrong turn and realized I was on what became a dirt road in the middle of a farm. The sky was gorgeous all day with beautiful clouds and blues and I saw this while turning the car around.

Once turned around, I hopped out of the car and got a few brackets. It was a great opportunity to try out my new Tamron 10-24mm lens as well. The only thing missing are the green colors of Spring!

I hope everyone has a great week.


  1. Beauty of a shot, Rich!

  2. Terrific scene Rich. Great sky and love that lone tree. I think that the brown grass really contrast well with that awesome sky. Well done.
