Field near Barge Canal
I finally decided me being lazy on Sunday mornings was getting me nowhere. I can’t tell you how many mornings on my way to work I wanted to stop to catch the sunrise. Well, I don’t have to work on the weekend (generally). Rather than wait until it was time for me to do my Sunday morning routine of grocery shopping, I loaded up the car and headed down to the Barge Canal.
I have been very negligent in visiting the canal. It is a location I frequented at the beginning of my photography journey but have avoided with thoughts of more exciting locations (ahem, state parks?). I have forgotten it can be about seeing your images and creating them, not always having them laid out before you.
It was a good walk along the trail and I captured some interesting images. When I was done I stopped over at the Nice -n- Easy for a coffee to enjoy on the way back home. This sunrise view is what I encountered as a crested the bridge over the railroad tracks. There is a corn field next to the Mohawk River which parallels the barge canal. I couldn’t resist pulling over on the side of the road and setting up the tripod. This is what I did more often when I didn’t know better. These opportunities I need to grab when they present themselves. I will make a more conscious effort going forward…
