This scene has kind of a special place in my mind. I have a winter shot that I took about a dozen years ago (from farther out, and more straight on), and it looks great on the computer screen, but upon close inspection it’s just not sharp enough to sell as a print. Which is disappointing, because it would make a great panorama. Then again, it’s not really the same now, either. The building in front was erected a few years ago, hence the year ‘2014’ on the front.
This is about a quarter mile from my photo club location, so I see it often. Even with the new building it’s still a good scene. I keep saying I’m going to stop and take some more shots, yet I rarely do. Today, after the meeting, I made a left and drove down closer to the barn itself. There are several really good views, one of which you see here.
I did several vantage points, and I think I’ll publish more as time goes by. I also think I’m going to go back soon after the trees have more leaves for a sightly different feel. I always feel that the time between winter and spring is the worst time to shoot landscapes. Everything is dusty and dingy. This is showing the beginning of spring, and has a nice quality all its own… but I still want full leaves, too.
