There’s a story that goes with this image revealing how far a photographer might go for the shot. DH pulled over into a safe spot, I jumped out and took a few shots including this one but I wanted to get more of this old barn so I cautiously walked up the two lane road, which had very little in the way of a shoulder for me to stand on, to try for another angle. I couldn’t step off the shoulder and into the grass – which I have done before for some roadside shots – either because there were weeds up to my knees and they went straight down into a deep ditch.
And then I noticed this horrible smell. I looked down and saw what looked like part of a dead deer in the brackish water and weeds. Time to go!!!
(Upon re-reading this post I realized what I did by walking on the narrow shoulder was not too bright. There is no photo out there worth getting hurt for. I will never attempt something like this again and neither should you)
