After the Storm

After all the stormy weather we had yesterday here in the Northeast, I made a last minute decision to see what I could find to shoot at sunset.  While the colors I had hoped for never materialized, there were enough clouds moving across the sky for me to try some long exposures.

I headed over to this barn, which fortunately is only 5 minutes away, and slapped on the 10 stop ND filter.  At a little over a minute exposure, I was able to get some action in the clouds, as well some fleeting color.  There was even some filtered sun hitting the front of the barn, which was an added bonus.  And most importantly, I was also back home 5 minutes later to put my son to bed.  Not a bad evening.

    Just the right amount of light to make this building stand out against that darkening sky. How nice to get a shot and be back home well inside a half hour

    How beautiful Mother Nature can be, even when she is angry.
    What an amazing sky this is!
