This week’s random image is of an old modern barn I found exploring the gravel farm roads just north of Mexico, Missouri.
Back Roads Modern Barn near Mexico, Missouri
Last October work sent me to Missouri for a week several times. During that time there I noticed they had a different style barn than in the south and have wanted to capture their style during a sunset or during a storm.
On my second trip north, they sent me to the small town of Mexico, Missouri for the week. Since I had over a week to plan this trip, I picked out some potential areas to explore when I got into town and on my way out of town.
Since I was given two days to get into town, I planned it so I got there with a few hours of sunlight left so I could explore some of the rural areas around town.
I found that as I drove north the land became flatter and more rural. If ever make up that way again, I plan exploring farther north. It looks more interesting southern Missouri.
As traveled further north, I spotted several large barns in the distance. I decided to head down the gravel road nearest me and begin my search for the perfect barn to shoot.
That’s when I passed this modern barn, near Mexico, Missouri. Although I say its modern, its been here a while. I have no clue what it stores, it could be the large tractors that work these large fields or it could store something else.
I took about 10 shots of the building with the sunset backlighting it and headed back to the hotel.
About the Image
I shot this image as as the remaining sunlight was fading by hand with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8. I then edited the image in Adobe Lightroom. Next, I post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, brighten, and bring out the details in the image. Then I removed the dust spots. Finally, I used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the image.
