On Sunday I went up to Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge to attend a small nature photography seminar. The weather was a bit gloomy with snow showers predicted for the afternoon and evening (in fact all this week). As I got up out of town, I noticed the clouds breaking up in places. I stopped along the way to catch some images of sun dappled landscapes with interesting clouds flying by. As I came down a long hill into Cayuga County, I noticed this barn up the next hill. The sun was setting it aglow, and I knew I had to try to get some shots. As I pulled over and got my camera out, the clouds rolled past and blocked the sun. So I waited. In weather like this I knew I would only have to wait a little while. I kept watch further up the hill and watched as the next opening slid over and took my images. I was able to get a few different versions as I waited for each new opening.
I love weather like this. Bright subject in sunlight with dark brooding clouds behind. Things always seem to be at the crispest during those times.
Thanks for stopping by.
