Back to Some Warmer Weather

Red Barns

It’s been very cold lately, warming up somewhat today, but this cold weather usually prompts me to go back to some photo shoots from warmer times of year.  These barns, just down the road from Hale Farm and Village were shot with a Lensbaby on a shoot with one of my photo buddies!  It was a nice warm late summer day and these two barns provided nice splashs of red in this rural landscape scene.

Red Barns and Hay

This second photo, also shot late in the summer with my same friend, was taken on a cloudy, rainy day.  As we drove down a rural road, we came upon this scene in a very light mist or drizzle.  I stopped the car along the side of the road, grabbed my camera and walked down the road toward the rolled hay in order to get the perspective that I wanted. By the time I had walked maybe 50 feet, the rain had increased and it was coming down fairly hard!  I quickly took a few shots and headed back to the car!  Fortunately my camera is sealed pretty well for precipitation and all I had to do was wipe it off with a microfiber towel I always carry with me for such occasions.

Both shots were edited in Lightroom and Photoshop, and Nik and Perfect Photo Suite 8 plug-ins were used to bring out detail in the sky and add additional effects and texture.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
