Mountain Barn

Mountain Barn

Hello everyone,

Sorry, been absent for a few weeks.  Been very busy out and about with the camera gear.  Just returned from a 4 day trip to Maggie Valley, NC and surrounding areas. This is one of my favorite places to visit. Normally visits here are in Autumn, but I must say, the spring colors in the mountains are fantastic.

The image above was captured near a town called Clyde, NC. A small, very picturesque red barn setting almost on the side of a hill.  We drove over 400 miles around western North Carolina on this trip. You can see more of my work from the trip here.

As always, thanks a bunch for stopping by.  You can also follow me here on my Facebook page. Once there, hit the like button, and please share my images with all your friends.

NW Indiana Trip

Red Barn and Pond

Hello everyone,

What a great drive we had last week. We covered just over 350 miles in the course of one day.  The area covered was north west of Indianapolis, from Lafayette over to Logansport.

We had some fantastic light in the morning on in to the afternoon.  Driving this area allowed me to capture some great barn images as well as a couple good landscapes.  Our intent was to visit all of the northern Indiana waterfalls.  We failed, in that we only visited 2 of them.  One of the falls is the tallest in Indiana and is located downtown Williamsport.

The barn above was captured driving down one of the many gravel roads we came upon. My guess is that at least 50% of the backroads in this area are gravel. By the time we arrived home one could not tell the color of my Ford.

We had a great lunch downtown Lafeyette at the Lafeyette Brew Company.  I highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

Hello everyone!

Took a short drive Thursday and came across this interesting old bank barn.  The yard had several goats walking around.  The light was just a bit harsh, had I drove by about an hour later it might have been a bit better.  Overall though, I like the way this one turned out. This image was captured using my Sony RX100 M2.  More trechnical detail below.

Sunrise Barn

Small Barn at Sunrise

Hello everyone!

We were on the road again this week, out trying to get some good images. We were able to capture a couple of good barn shots before the sun was to high in the sky.  Once again, supposed to be a partly cloudy day, but there were none to be found.

The image above was captured just after sunrise.  This old barn is still a workhorse and very rustic looking.  Obviously both opening on either end were added after the original barn was built.  I will be posting more from this trip tomorrow.  Technical data is below.

Have a great weekend.

Hello everyone,

Took a short drive on a very cool evening last week here in Indiana. It was a beautiful evening with some great skies. I stumbled across a couple old barns that were not yet in my collection.

On this trip I packed my Sony RX100 Mii and my Nikon D700 with my Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 lens attached. The image above was captured with my Nikon setup. Taking this setup worked out well.  My Sony for close up barns and my Nikon for those barns that were a bit farther away from the road.

Some technical data below.
