Less Than One Day
I’m often suggested places I should go because I will be able to make great photos when I get there. And I probably could.
I accept the offer but explain there are still many great photos within five miles of my home, and I haven’t yet been able to make them all. That is usually met with an odd glance expressing confusion about the idea that something so close to me and that I see almost every day could be interesting.
The photo combination above answers that confusion. Admittedly neither is a great photo, more snapshot than expressive.
But they were made hours apart on the same day. From approximately the same location.
Made the sunrise over the Braun Farm barn and house first thing in the morning as I began my daily photo trek. Hadn’t planned to go back later in the day but the snowfall began slightly earlier than forecast giving me an unusual duet of photos of the farm. Not a normal view of a single day on the farm.
Today’s F8-My Final Photo News has a simple story about the sledding hill and the loss of the American elm that stood at its ridgeline for more than 80 years. A story that wouldn’t have the depth if I’d been out of town at a suggested place instead of making photos at the sledding hill for so many years.
