Behind The Lens

I took this photo somewhere in the middle of Kansas, off Interstate 70.
The photo was taken just before 9:00 AM on May 26, 2019.
There was a storm moving quickly from the West and the light of day was in that transition zone between soft and harsh light and the different cloud layers helped diffuse the harshest part of the light, which added some drama to the scene.
I used a Canon 5D Mark IV paired with the EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens.
My family and I were driving through Kansas while heading toward the Mountains and we were on the 2nd day of our roundtrip. We noticed the lime fenceposts that dotted the landscape, and thanks to Google, discovered that the first settlers in the area made limestone fenceposts out of necessity—there were no large trees readily available to make fenceposts. Newly quarried limestone is soft enough to be fashioned into fenceposts and hardened as it is exposed to air. This piqued our curiosity, so we decided to make a detour and get a closer look. I was inspired by the lonely road disappearing into the vast landscape, so got the camera and snapped a few pictures. It was a short stop because we had a full day of driving ahead of us.
I used Lightroom to do most of the adjustments for color, contrast, and tone. Photoshop was used to further refine the photo using local adjustments for contrast to bring out some of the drama in the sky and emphasize the pockets of light throughout the frame.
In my camera bag
My camera bag includes the Canon 5D Mark IV and the accompanying lenses, etc. (16-35, 24-70, 70-200) and for this trip, the 50mm lens, which rarely leaves the house.
Road trips are an adventure, so be sure your camera handy. I wasn’t planning to take many photos while driving to our destination, but I wanted it if I needed it if we came across anything interesting. That’s why I paired it with the 50mm lens—it’s compact, light, and versatile. You never know what you might see!
