Usually I avoid shooting during mid-day because I find the light is often too harsh. But a couple weeks ago I got together with a couple of friends and we spent the day working the back roads of the Shenandoah Valley. We stopped at Meems Bottom Covered Bridge, I had been trying to shoot a panorama inside the bridge but gave up because a car would drive through the bridge every few minutes. Next to the bridge was a field of corn ready for harvesting. Being in the bright light and having left my diffuser at home I decided to use a Lensbaby, knowing the optical effect of the highlights would create a nice effect.
