Day 2 of Project 365 and It was a busy day today as my wife and I held a garage sale for a majority of the day so I did not get a chance to go out and take photos until this evening. This worked out well however because it was a beautiful day today and the afternoon light was gorgeous and it had been storming the night before so the sky was still filled with these large clouds. I traveled over to park I discovered earlier last week wanting to capture a barn I found there is different light and got a few good shots. I think Ill try this location again another time during sunset to see what I can get. I wish the park was open over night because I would love to get a shot there at with the night sky. Let me know what you think.
