This picture was one of those images that probably "shouldn't have happened." I was on my way to a job that I was late for and saw the way that the early morning sun was hitting this pasture and barn.
I did stop and I did take a few images.
Quite simple really. I set my camera to burst mode and a medium aperture and fired a few bursts. I was hand-holding the camera because I was in a hurry. If I had it to do over again I'd definitely want a tripod and a little more time.
When it comes to post processing I made a few minor tweaks in Lightroom and then jumped to photoshop to do some cleanup in the image. Finally the image was finished with a few small filters in Color Efex.
