It does look like a set, and would be in real life! 🙂 Have you been to Mendocino? Reply ↓ Poetpas May 22, 2020 • 8:21 am Cool picture. Do you live there? 😁 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 22, 2020 • 8:33 am Thanks, Poetpas. No, we live about four hours drive south in SF. The drive up to Mendocino through the redwoods and coastline is a spectacular getaway. Reply ↓ Poetpas May 22, 2020 • 8:35 am Wow, sounds like and interesting area to explore with a camera. Well done 👍🏻 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 22, 2020 • 8:38 am A favorite California town. 😊 Reply ↓ Graham Stephen May 21, 2020 • 11:27 pm Lovely tonality! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 22, 2020 • 7:48 am Thank you, Graham. A special spot on the coast. Reply ↓ www.corneliaweber-photography.com May 21, 2020 • 8:57 pm Aging carries it’s beauty within itself, as well the stories behind it. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 22, 2020 • 7:53 am Well said, Cornelia. Applies to people, too. 🙂 Thank you. Reply ↓ Peter Klopp May 21, 2020 • 5:54 pm So old and yet so beautiful! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2020 • 6:37 pm I love these old barns. Such treasures. Thanks, Peter. 😊 Reply ↓ Eliza Waters May 21, 2020 • 5:28 pm ‘Talk about your fixer-upper!’ 😉 I love Mendocino – such a gorgeous area. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2020 • 6:36 pm Oh, the possibilities! 😄 It’s a gorgeous part of the coast. Thanks, Eliza. Reply ↓ David May 21, 2020 • 3:23 pm The pioneer perspective. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2020 • 3:27 pm Good one, David. 😊 It does feel like that up there. Thank you. Reply ↓ Jordan Hoggard May 21, 2020 • 2:01 pm I love the pre-storm tornado light. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2020 • 3:23 pm It does look more ominous than it really was. Thanks, Jordan. 😊 Reply ↓ Jordan Hoggard May 21, 2020 • 6:19 pm 🙂 Reply ↓ Jordan Hoggard May 21, 2020 • 9:53 pm 😉 I bet. The light, though, does remind me of the nuclear, no-pressure, feeling of full-when suddenly bright on one side and ominous on the other just prior to a tornado touching down in North Texas. It’s quite an exercise of visual and visceral contrast in Nature. There’s just this unmistakeable, eerie quality to the light when the pressure just suddenly zeroes out and disappears, shudder-shake-reverberates you to still and hyper-aware. Then, at the same time, the light shifts like there’s a revers-eclipse following the pressure drop right before a tornado. There’s just a , “yea, OH BOY, now dafuq, GET INSIDE TO COVER NOW” quality to that experience. This image’s light embraces the entirety of that experience full-on. Much rather be looking at it (this image) than looking for it (a tornado). Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2020 • 10:31 pm What a great description, Jordan. Fortunately, I’ve never experienced a tornado but some thunderstorms and hurricanes feel like this and make your hair stand on end! Reply ↓ Jordan Hoggard May 21, 2020 • 10:41 pm Oh yes, they certainly make your hair stand on end. There’s a weirdness to the combined “DUCK!” Feeling of one’s hackles being up at the onset of a tornado, and the same time just a very calm and urgent clarity to get to shelter pronto. It’s like Nature sent you a message with High Importance, and it’s your job to listen NOW… calmly, with urgency. Other than almost dying on a mountain, I’ve never felt that kind of… with a tornado … how do I express it? Such a very clear connection with intense Nature, NOW, and wise-in-time in the moment is mandatory. There’s just such a direct exchange with Nature at that point. I appreciate your accolade on my description. ANd yes, you’re fortunate. It’s an indelibly intense experience, a tornado, and though I consider it valuable, I’d wish it on no one. uzzawal1911 May 21, 2020 • 10:34 am Nice shot, black and white always adds a layer of peace and mystery. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2020 • 3:24 pm Thank you, Uzzawal. Happy you enjoyed this image and some other posts. Much appreciated. 😊 Reply ↓ paula graham May 21, 2020 • 9:50 am A Gorgeous find and resulting shot, so well processed. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2020 • 3:30 pm Thanks, Paula. These have been preserved in a state park right on the coastline. Very special. Reply ↓ sharonbuehler May 21, 2020 • 9:28 am Really like this, Jane. Have you done a series of barns? Sharon > Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2020 • 3:26 pm Thanks, Sharon. I have but it’s time to look back and do another. I have quite a few. Glad you enjoyed! 😊 Reply ↓ plaidcamper May 21, 2020 • 9:21 am Wonderful image! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie May 21, 2020 • 3:25 pm Thanks, Adam. A favorite spot on the coast. Miss it.
