Red Barn on Paerata Road

One of the best things about New Zealand is that you don't have to drive very far to see something beautiful. When we were driving back to our home town on this trip, there’s a red barn we used to pass at least twice a day to and from work - Its always had a homely feel to it.

I tried to best capture this feeling in the scene. I woke early that morning to take advantage of the morning light. Unfortunately the sky just wasn't interesting enough. So I decided to add some texture to help bring in some of that quaint rustic feeling I was going for. For those who like this effect, please check out this textures tutorial here. It's well worth adding this technique to your tool belt of tricks.

Camera settings for this shot can be found on flickr here.
