Back Roads Modern Barn near Mexico, Missouri

In October of 2014 work sent me to Missouri for a week several times. On my first trip up north, I noticed they had a different style barns than they do in the south. I found that they are interesting  and I wanted to capture a few shots of them at sunset.

On my second trip north, they sent me to the small town of Mexico, Missouri for the week. Since I had over a week to plan this trip, I picked out some potential areas to explore when I got into town and on my way out of town.

This trip was a long drive and required by company policy for me to make it in two days. I planned the second leg of my trip to arrive in time to have a few hours sunlight left so I could explore the rural areas outside of town. I found that as I drove north the land became flatter and more rural. If I ever make up that way again, I plan on exploring farther north. It looks more interesting than southern Missouri.

As traveled further north, I spotted several large barns in the distance. I decided to head down the gravel road nearest me and begin my search for the perfect barn to shoot.

That’s when I passed this modern barn, near Mexico, Missouri. Although I say its modern, its been here a while. I have no clue what it stores, it could be the large tractors that work the large fields or it could store something else.

I took about 10 shots of the building with the sunset backlighting it and headed back to the hotel.

About the Image

I shot this image as as the remaining sunlight was fading by hand with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8. I then edited the image in Adobe Lightroom. Next, I post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, brighten, and bring out the details in the image. Then I removed the dust spots. Finally, I used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the image.
