Never As Good As the First Time


 
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner   Never As Good As the First Time
Never As Good As the First Time
The sky on this day was incredible. I had just spent two hours photographing horses and was a little tired of shooting. But altocumulus clouds don't happen often and I had to shoot the sunset. With rising air creating so many cloud lumps the sky took a rippled appearance. As I pulled off the side of the road my truck got stuck in some mud. I went shooting anyways. And figured that I would worry about it later. The clouds and surrounding scenery had my mind too focused on shooting. After the amazing sunset I had to face reality and get my truck unstuck.Visit My Website

  Thanks when I went back to shoot this barn they had cut down all the wild grass. This is what gave me the idea for the title.
