Just last week I was heading up to Michigan’s thumb to attempt an astrological photo shoot. As you read, it didn’t exactly go as planned. But I did get this:
So I’m happy. But I also can’t wait to try it again! The end of the month will be more moonless nights…if I can get the weather to cooperate maybe I can get an even better image. Maybe one with the whole Milky Way in the frame!
But until then there are always barns.
On the way home from my starlit night I took my time, wandering around big farm blocks, teased by wide open vistas filled with barns.
There are so many beautiful barns in the thumb!
It seemed like I’d see one across a huge field, get there, and then see more on the far side of another field!
I wasn’t too sure where I was during most of my barn hunting, but it didn’t really matter — how lost can you get in a thumb?
But it wasn’t just barns that I found fascinating. I loved the big expanses of fields, and the tree lines in the distance too.
And there was this guy who moved a wing and caught my eye while I was focusing on a barn over his left shoulder.
What barn was I focused on? Well, these two:
But there were so many to choose from.
I could have driven around looking at them all day. It was almost as fun, in a different way, as shooting at night out under the stars.
