I found some wonderful old barns this last week and decided to play HDR with them. Normally I don’t HDR barns, maybe the idea never occurred to me when it comes to barns so I have never even bothered to bracket images while shooting them. Silly me! At least there is always Photoshop to adjust exposures on hind sight. I like the BW version for it’s stillness but wow all the colors that were pulled out from the color version is just short of amazing. Who knew barns had so many colors.. my barn of many colors that my mamma made for .. oh wait that was a coat not a barn.
I found this little road side park just north of Ava Missouri on Route 5. This is by far the prettiest road side stop I have came across in a very long time. Most likely all the recent rain has allowed this creek to enjoy the benefits of water and highly possible that the next time I pass this way this area will be all dried up for the season- all the more reason to enjoy it now!!!
Some days you just need to get away and go to your happy place. This was mine on this early spring day. The sounds of the birds and the creek as it hurries along it’s way. There are still a few Red bud trees out and the rest of the trees are starting to fill out as well.
Went for a Sunday drive this past weekend and stumbled upon a field of yellow spring flowers. The best part besides the smell was being able to walk waste deep in grass and flowers and not get a single tick or see a single snake! It was a lucky day all the way around.
