Somewhere on the great plains of eastern near Lindon, CO is this old weathered barn. Old structures like this fascinate me immensely, and finding a golden nugget like this is truly a treat.
This is actually an HDR shot, which was required since I was shooting directly into the sun. The "correct" exposure would have been blown out by the bright light in the sky, leaving the barn way underexposed, and conversely, exposing for the barn would have left the sky completely washed out. To get the high dynamic dynamic range needed, I took 5 photos with 1/2 stops in between each, HDR merged, and adjusted other controls in Adobe Lightroom.
Thanks everyone for the kind complements!
