I think we’ve been spotted 😉
We had just left the peach orchard and were taking the long way around (which meant nothing but farms as far as we could see) to get to the highway that would take us home when DH suddenly stops and pulls over and says “LOOK!” Mind you, I was looking straight ahead at an interesting barn when this happened. He points to my right and I say “So it’s a couple of deer statues?” After a minute or two the statues began to move cautiously. I rolled the window down and leaned over a bit to get this shot.
Wonder where mom was?
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)
