Abandoned farmhouse

This abandoned farmhouse is an interesting subject to photograph, but you need to pick the right time of day, and I don’t think I did that here. At this time of year the sun is low in the sky and there is a wooded area beside the field where the structure stands (off to the right of the photo). As a result, the building had only limited direct light falling on it. Later in the afternoon when the sun will cast light directly onto the walled side of the building would be better, or even perhaps earlier in the day and photograph it form the other side.

I rarely have the luxury of picking what time I get to photograph such things unfortunately, and even then I’m at the mercy of the weather, so sometimes it’s a case of taking whatever I can get and making the most of it.
