On Memorial Day my wife and I headed out to search the countryside for interesting barns or other scenes to photograph. We stumbled across a beautiful Memorial Day display at the cemetery in Benton, Ks., which I posted an image of on Monday. We did find a barn, but the sky was not particularly interesting. We ended up eating a little picnic lunch at Lake Afton, which is a few miles from Wichita. As I looked up at the underside of the wooden shelter we were under, I thought…wow that looks kind of interesting. I took a bracketed set, put it through Photomatix, then back into Lightroom for level tweaks and a monochrome conversion. A totally unexpected subject, and turned out to be one of my favorites of our little trip.
