Even with the clouds present, I was able to develop this in Lightroom with a single image HDR layer applied, giving it brighter colors and a nice composition with the small stream in the foreground, the sheep, horses and large bull in the background—all grazing, totally oblivious to my presence. One nice thing about farms in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia is their use of split rail fencing, built in a traditional manner. That gives this image a real historic look, which was my intention. (Nikon D300, ISO 200, 50mm, f14, 1/125 sec)
