It’s kind of hard to find mysterious light in the middle of the day in the outdoors unless you’re under a tornado warning, which I wasn’t today. The sun was splitting the sky with puffy clouds so I thought to myself what can I do to make the light mysterious. Well the answer was obvious to a Photoshop Jedi… so I played around with the white balance and did a bit of vignetting and hey presto, a mysterious light surrounding an old abandoned church!
There are so many photogenic old buildings and barns in the Mid West, which I’d love to go closer and take a peek through the windows (then the light would be mysterious) but each and every one of them have a big NO TRESPASSING sign posted on them. Now if this had been back in Scotland no problem, a sneaky peek through the windows no bother, but this is Illinois and when they say NO TRESPASSING they mean NO TRESPASSING coz they have guns here! So I behaved myself and stuck to the road and snapped away.
As a side note when I was driving along the back roads I came across a shark in a corn field. Yep, you read that right. A shark in a corn field. Now that’s a mystery!
ps. Shark in a cornfield would be a cool name for a band dontcha think?
