Thanksgiving delight

Sunset over farm

I hope you all here in America had a nice Thanksgiving. We spent the holiday with the whole family on the farm in Northwest Iowa. Thank you again Shelly, Shelby, Jessica, and Don for having us. We had a great time with outstanding food, fun, and good conversation.

This part of the state is very flat and landscape photography isn't always on my mind when we are there. The relative warm weather made it easy to spend some time outside and at the end of the day we were blessed with a gorgeous sunset over the neighboring farm. There was no doubt about that I would get the tripod out and shoot into the setting sun.

Old barn

Fifteen minutes earlier the sun gave the old barn a wonderful warm color. I love these old farm buildings and numerous images of this barn made it on my hard disk already during the last few years. My friend Dave Updegraff here in Eastern Iowa has an ongoing project and writes about it in his blog quite often. He shoots old barns and other farm related things and I'm sure he would like to point his lens on this one.
