I set out early Sunday morning to capture the setting of the “super moon”, but as usual Mother Nature had other plans. On my way out of town, I was able to get a quick glimpse of the moon, but it was never to be seen again. Over the past two months, Vermont has seen it’s fair share of rain and thunderstorms. This morning was no different. My plan was to travel up into Tinmouth and set up so I could shoot the “super moon” as it set behind the mountain ridge that runs behind the town. Once I got to my spot I could tell as the storm clouds began to move in I needed to go to plan “B”.
Plan “B” consisted of moving on to an old two-story barn that was just down the road. With the skies darkening I knew I would at least have a very interesting sky to compliment this majestic old barn. One of my goals has been to reshoot this barn and turn the photo into a black and white image. My timing couldn’t have been better. The stormy skies overhead, dark trees surrounding the barn on both sides and just a hint of the sun lighting the barn made for a wonderful shot. Mother Nature wrecked my initial plans but made up for it in the end. This is one of the great joys of photography in Vermont.
Thanks for looking in!!
