While driving towards the Rough River lake for a weekend, I managed to get this barn from the car window against the “Simpson Sky”.
My girlfriend told me I captured what can easily represent Western Kentucky: Red old barns, vast green fields of corn, soya beans or tobacco, and blue skies with white puffy clouds on a hot summer day.
This is the countryside in Kentucky. A very relaxing and laid back area I enjoyed during my 3 weeks stay and looking forward to visit again in the future.
Now I’m off to California for a week and then back home to Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Use polarizing filters when shooting landscapes with a beautiful blue sky. Not only will it deepen the sky color, it will also saturate all colors in the shot, remove unwanted glare, and improve contrast. Polarizing filters are best used when shooting at a 90 degree angle from the sun (sun on your left or right, not in front or behind). And remember that circular polarizers have a part of the filter that can be rotated to achieve the best results.
