Red, Green and Blue

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)

    A little different from our “red and green”. Nice shot. Do you get a shot of the dead dear in the brackish water?

    That smell… will nearly bowl you over. I get it on early morning runs sometimes.
