Parker Barn

Posted by CW McGowen (Morgan Hill, United States) on 30 November 2015 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I've been in Colorado a couple days. We've had fog and snow which have reduced the photographic opportunities and I have been antsy to get out and take a few shots. Finally this morning the weather cooperated for some sunrise shots. I rose before sunrise to check the weather and found it mostly clear to the east and above with clouds still hanging out to the west. I knew this would be a perfect opportunity for those western clouds to light up with the sunrise so I setup on the east side of a local barn and waited for the sun to rise. It was 9 degrees out, so the wait was a bit nippy, though worth it.
