Sunrise Barn


Good morning and thanks for stopping by 🙂

This image is from our sunrise outing yesterday (Sunday) morning. Zach and I took a ride out through scenic Lancaster County in hopes of finding a nice red barn to contrast with the fresh snow and it didn’t take long for us to find exactly what we were looking for! One of the nice things about living in a rural area is you can normally find parking along the road where you would like to shoot. Of course this isn’t always the case but more often than not we luck out.

As you can imagine Lancaster County has a ton of barns and a majority of them are Amish. The trick is finding one that is located in a good spot (not too much clutter) and it helps if it is facing in the right direction (sunrise or sunset) depending on the time of day you’re out shooting. Okay, I guess I’ll come clean (grin). I’ve shot this barn before and knew exactly where we needed to be to capture sunrise and its resplendent color.

I’m going to try and blog more often so please stay tuned 🙂
