Huron Barn

Driving back from taking some family/toddler portraits (those will be posted here shortly) the other night, I had a little bit of extra time and my camera with me, so I stopped at this old barn site along Huron, just north of Highway 7 here in Erie. The barn itself is huge, but slowly being surrounded and eaten by the development of the land around it as Erie expands south and east of itself.

So beautiful late afternoon lighting and a barn — what could be better, right?

And then I turned to the west and see what’s giving me this wonder warm lighting….

And lastly, here’s a cool shot of Huron Road, looking north into the rural east Erie.

(Now I’m counting on eDDie to name this barn here shortly in the comments below!)

Ryssby Church in the Snow

I love this little chapel on the West side of Longmont. But there’s really only two sides to shoot it from: the West and the South, due to these little posts. There are four light posts that surround this chapel but only the two on the South side are ever lit. Having said this, it’s a challenge to get a different look when shooting from the same sides and angles all the time.

Here I’ve tried capturing various (and differing) compositions – hopefully appealing too.
