A barn near Bad Axe, Michigan.
Spent the last week driving along Michigan's Lake Huron shoreline - which is beautiful. Ran into this barn on the back roads north of Bad Axe while heading up to Port Austin. The sunset was shining through incoming rain (much needed in the area) and created a great luminous effect over the open fields of the thumb area.

Infrared converted Pentax K01 and DFA HD 15-30 f2.8 lens. I bought the lens for full frame use but realized that it is an ideal focal length for use on the APS-C K01. It works nicely!
I've driven past this little dirt road many a time, and always wondered what was there. Glad I took the turn today.

Beautiful spring day with the crops just starting to pop up. On the back roads in Cass County earlier today:
