I had an idea for shooting some photos at a scenic place along the road in Leander. It had been a cloudy day, but the sun was finally getting through the clouds in the late afternoon, so I headed to the place. As I was going, dark gray storm clouds were quickly moving in and I thought that I could get a few shots before the sun was covered up. But the clouds moved in before I could set up bringing wind and lightning.
I shot a few pictures through an open car window to try to get something. There is a rustic wooden rail fence guarding a field flush with yellow wildflowers and some low trees in the distance.
I thought that there must be something there I could experiment with for a foreground with the fence mid-ground and the wildflowers background. But, as soon as I reached this location, it began to rain. From the car, I framed a large bush in the foreground with a large utility pole just out of shot to the right. I would like to have been a bit higher as the fence almost blocks the tree line.
We have a had a lot of stormy weather for this part of the country this spring, but it has lead to an impressive bloom of wildflowers; the best I have seen in 20 years. It is storming as I write this and will be stormy the rest of the week. I don’t think that I will be able to make it over here for any more shooting.
One from the roadside anyway. Thanks for reading.
