My dad and I were driving down Colorado Highway 50 heading home from a long weekend trip fishing down along the Gunnison River (my trip to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison earlier this year) and I was just staring out the window watching the miles pass. I noticed this red barn coming up which started to peak my interest.
There have been many times in the past driving along that I wish I would have captured some sunset, some cloud formation, an abandoned car along the side of the road and I decide to keep driving. Inevitably I start kicking myself for not stopping a few minutes to capture the image.
We approach this red barn and I notice there is this single bull standing out in front of the barn. What a great scene! I yell over to my dad to STOP the car. Dad yells out “What’s wrong?!” I swing open the door, run out to this field along the side of the road, dSLR in tow and snap this scene. I think this bull is asking who this nut job is. I get back to the car and my dad is shaking his head and I’m smiling ear to ear!
This weekend I’ve finally had a chance to really dig through the images from the trip down to the Black Canyon. I can’t believe I passed up this image in processing. My dad’s been asking me for pictures from the trip so I’ve decided to put together a book for him from our trip. It was a special weekend together, that male bonding weekend. This image is going in the book. It’s just one of those crazy fleeting memories together. Hopefully it brings a smile to his face. I know it brought a smile to my face.
