Waiting for the Sun

Last night I decided I'd stop at a couple of places on my way home to get some pictures. There's a horse drawn wagon on a crossroad between routes 11 and 281 just south of Tully that I wanted to take some pictures of. Unfortunately, none of them turned out well enough to upload. I'll be back there when the sun is shining.

I did get this barn though. I wasn't paying attention to what was going on behind what I was shooting. I was more concentrated on the dirt than the barn, so I had to crop and rotate to get the image to appear straight.

I wandered up the railroad tracks to see if I could find anything of interest. I thought I found some interesting things, unfortunately, they weren't so interesting when I got home and looked at them on my computer.

I left, drove around Song Lake then up Maxon Road and Vern King Road. I saw a few opportunities a little ways up to get some shots, so I pulled over, got out of my truck and the sun disappeared! Ugh! I wasn't going to waste the opportunity, so I took a few pictures of the road, down the valley, the field and just as I began to pack up my stuff, the sun started peeking through the clouds. So I waited a few minutes and ended up with these.

After I shot those, I drove up Vern King Road a little ways and saw a couple of trees I had to shoot.

Despite the sun not being out for most of my trip, it turned out pretty good, I think. I'm going to drive up Vern King Rd. and Maxon Road one morning to catch the sun on the other side of the trees to see what I can get.

I'll leave you with this fun guy...
