Brandy Day170: Flooded Chaos

image

Summer storms. Where it can be shining sun, torrential downpour, sun again, melting heat and when the rain hits the pavement its instant steam.
Its such a sweet smell. Rain on hot country roads. Wet soil. The smell of corn growing in the fields. The way the winds blow and bring those scents to you.
Sometimes I wish photography was scratch and sniff. So you could really feel the photo. This grabbed my attention. The reflection of the sun setting in the distance. The reflection of corn from the drowning field. It stopped me. A scene so beautiful, with so many smells and emotions, just washed up waiting for someone to carelessly drive through. Disrupting the beauty.

Brandy Day153: Straight. No Chaser

Shooting on borrowed time.
I couldn’t take it. I was feeling lousy. I needed a camera in my hands again.
Happy that the past two days had been rain filled so I felt I wasn’t missing out on too much. As the rain tapered off and the clouds broke, I noticed the orange glow in the sky. I wasn’t sure what I’d get when I headed out but it was worth the chance. As I drove I crossed over 69 and this is where I stopped. Where I shot until the sun set. It was beautiful. The sun melted into the horizon as the clouds ushered in another storm.  The onset of the looming storm didn’t matter and neither did the past couple of days, I got this shot and for that moment I was more than happy.
