When I stopped to photograph these barns on Junction Road in Davis Junction Illinois, my attention was on the entire farm at first. The sun was low in the sky and reflecting off of the ice. As I looked a little more I realized there was an old tractor sitting next to one of the barns. I walked back to where I had parked my car on the side of the road (I wasn’t dressed for a long outing) to get my 55-300 zoom lens. I really like the way the tractor photo came out (below).
On a positive note the temperature is supposed to get close to freezing tomorrow which will be 40 degrees warmer than it is as I type this post. Although it is bringing more snow with it. It has been an uncommon February for sure this year. I think there has only been one day over 32 degrees so far.
