Well, the clouds were really grey, boring, and smeared. The whole sky was just a uniform grey. Both locations were just no good. I did take some shots at these locations, but they all went into the trash.
So on the way back to the house, feeling a little defeated, I looked over to the right and saw this guy....
(3 shots at F11, ISO 100, 55mm)
I have no idea what this thing is, besides a unique bull. I remember that this property always has some kind of exotic animals, and this guy above is no exception. He made my day, as I was able to compose a nice interesting photo and not worry about the boring sky.
I'll head back to those other locations on a better day, when there's some dramatic clouds. Perhaps around sunset....stay tuned.
