You’d think living in Tennssee it wouldn’t be so hard to find something orange…but today it was! Everything I saw was Red! I looked really hard for something, anything of interest that was orange and it just wasn’t meant to be! But, I found great photos and here’s two of my favorites. The top one is a barn that I’ve driven past several times and loved. It’s in a curve on a very narrow two lane road. I pulled in to the driveway and jumped out. At first I didn’t notice the cow cause I was so taken by the silo and the red of the barn. Then I noticed the cow. She made for a pretty difficult shot- trying to get her to show up in the shadows of the barn without blowing out the white of the snow on the ground, it was an exposure nightmare. I tried my best to balance it and ended up with this. I just love cows. I love to talk to them while I’m shooting, I think it freaks them out. There was one small calf just to the left of this and out of the frame who wasn’t amused at all- I shoulda took a few of him and his face that seemed to be saying, “Stranger! Danger!”, but it was snowing again and I wasn’t exactly parked in a great spot, so I just hurried off.
The bottom pic I just loved the kind of homemade “Cattle Crossing” sign. The green of the pine with the red contrasting against the snow just made for a nice shot. -girl.in.camo
