Storm watch

Hoping to get some sunset pictures last evening, I set out in search of open fields and farmland. Approaching storm clouds on the horizon quickly blotted out any chance of a sunset photo. So I switched to capturing the atmosphere of an approaching storm.

Standing at the corner of a barn, I glanced up and saw a structure standing resolute as the darkness approached.

love the gradient of the sky, and the way the lines of the barn leads the viewer's eyes into the picture.

neil, thanks! I enjoyed your photo blog as well. Discovered it at VFXY.

alicia, thanks for noticing the lines. I did quite a bit of experimenting with the tilt of the camera to get the lines to where I liked them.

v., as always, thanks for stopping by.
