When you work out in the country, every road is a new adventure. I managed to leave a job site just before 5 one day this week, when the sun was starting to move towards the horizon, casting long shadows and a creamy hue on all it touched, appropriately known as the golden hour. I drove past field and barns and fences and pulled over nearly every half a mile to jump out of the car and make a shot with the seemingly perfect backdrop illuminating all. It was definitely below freezing and I hate shooting in gloves, so my fingers quickly went numb (second time this week – oh well I’ll take some pain for my art) and people driving by probably wondered what in the hell this crazy girl was doing (car still running with flashers on in the road), but whatever this is rural Maryland and I’ll let them wonder. No editing needed and I’m officially in love with my new f1.8 lens. I actually really love the fixed lens aspect, aside from the great aperture and better glass, it’s one less thing for me to think about and changes how I view composition.
Enjoy! I sure as hell did 🙂
