County rt 60, Cambridge, NY. 1st u-tube video!


The above is a link to my new "channel" there are the three segments of video I made today, I didn't edit although I should have,  I'll blog as usual anyway, here goes...

64  F  Mostly sunny with a few clouds.
# 406 County rt. 60 @ Cobble Hill rd.

Money shot

I drove around a while before I settled on this spot, as you can see it's a sun-drenched side of a light yellow barn, and the sun is coming from behind..

I had the camera set up in the van to do the video, so I took fewer stills.

I didn't want the video to take over, and I don't think it did, the painting progressed with the panel at an odd angle so the glare wasn't in my eyes and this seemed to work.

This is where I ended up, the brightness of the barn gives it a bit of a ghostly quality, appropriate for this, the first day of autumn.

My scene.

I also don't usually like county hi ways, but this one doesn't have that much traffic. and there was room to pull off.


  1. Well done! There is something surrealistic about the form of the road...

  2. Thanks Chani!, I thought the barn looked a little ghostly,with the washed out light on it!
