I am always jealous of photographers who live near the mountains.
They have such gorgeous landscapes on which place their work.
"Flatlanders" like we Midwesterners aren't as lucky. We have relatively flat terrain (in most areas), although some of it is populated by beautiful grasses and corn stalks.
One way to overcome that obstacle is to place something interesting in the foreground: a fence, a stone, anything that will anchor that area of the picture and draw the eye to it.
That's what we had in mind when we came upon this rural scene on our recent day trip to southern Wisconsin.
Maximum depth of field brought the barn in the background into acceptable focus.
More of our barns are featured in a gallery on our online portfolio:
