Barn in the Setting Sun
A barn not too far from the kid's Wednesday night soccer location in Clayton. I was first drawn to the barn a few weeks ago when I noticed the trumpet vine/orange flowers on the front. Either I was running too late or it was cloudy or the sun was too far down for a picture. Thankfully last night on the way home I had enough sunlight and time to stop. Lots of poison ivy in the grasses right in front of the barn, so I was limited in where I could stand. Had the displeasure of a driver coming by and flooring his super loud muffler right near me on purpose. Why do folks do that?!?
HDR, power line and shadow removed, Orton applied at 50%, Vignette applied at 15%.
Spotted a female Summer Tanager in the yard yesterday too. This shot was taken out my large back deck door window. Remember, I posted a red male a few weeks ago. Christine says she's seen fledglings in her yard. Neat!
Mr. Blue Jay is very hard to catch. Unfortunately I got window glare on this shot. The left side of the shot is dark because I'm peeking around the side of the window frame.
Joey gave me a hard time at soccer last night, but he's looking pretty cute here:-)
