I wish I could go again, Out behind the barn

WP D7K_5513-Edit

“Inside a barn is a whole universe, with its own time zone and climate and ecosystem, a shadowy world of swirling dust illuminated in tiger stripes by light shining through the cracks between the boards. Old leather tack, lengths of chain, rope, and baling twine dangled from nails and rafters and draped over stall railings. Generations of pocketknives lay lost in the layers of detritus on the floor.”

Cabin Fever

We’ve been housebound for the last 3 days so I’ve been trying to think of something to brighten the mood. Then I remembered that I’d be going to the Skagit Valley bulb fields again in less than 3 months (OK, that’s still a fair ways off but I’m desperate). Anyway, I remembered that I still had about 600 RAW photos in Lightroom from my 2010 and 2011 trips. I first thought that some of them were questionable and only cherry-picked the best for previous postings.
After reviewing them again, I see that there are about 50 or so that could turn out pretty nice using some new tools and techniques that I picked up this past year. So until the snow and ice melt, I’m going to be working on these for a new gallery.
Until then I’ll just hope for a favorable outcome on Groundhog’s Day (which is only a couple of weeks away).
