” Madison Indiana Main Street Snow at Night “

I am just about over all this snow for one year, we have had about 18-20 inches in the last week, a couple snowstorms is nice but this is getting ridiculous !!  I would love to get out into the countryside to get a few landscape shots but they have us on this Level One emergency which means authorized vehicles only whatever that means, considering I saw a lot of unauthorized vehicles traveling up and down Main Street tonight I might just venture out tomorrow.

So tonight I thought I might just take a walk down on Main Street here in Madison Indiana and play around with some real long exposure shots of the cars moving up and down the street. I  captured about 50 images and after a long look came away with a couple shots I kinda liked, here is on of the shots I kept, this was a 15 second exposure and it does have a pretty cool look to it.

It’s funny all the looks you get from people as they drive by, I am sure they were wondering what I was up to. It was rather fun standing on Main Street with my tripod and camera pointing it at the cars as they went by. The looks I got were definitely worth standing in the snow and cold !!

“Winter Barn”

I actually got to spend a couple hours outside today and got a few images from the snow we received today, it wasn’t a huge storm by any means , but just enough to give our dull winter landscape some life !!

My son and I took our 4 wheel drive out thru the countryside looking for anything that caught our eyes, the sky and light were pretty flat so we really didn’t capture anything striking, but did come up with a couple good shots. I came across this old barn that looked like it had weathered quite a few snows in its life so I thought it might make for an interesting image.

Since the scene was mostly monotone anyway I decided to do a B&W conversion for a more dramatic effect, I would have loved to move in closer to get a few shots of the wood siding on the barn but I didn’t know who owned it and wasn’t in the mood to be chased out of a field today !!

I also came across a few stream images that weren’ too bad and I will try to share some of them with you later. Basketball is really winding down now and we are working hard on the new studio and hope to be in there by March. It was really nice to get out and shoot today, it will be great when I get more time to pursue photography again and be able to spend more time outdoors.
