I spent a thrilling couple of hours in the late afternoon photographing inside the old barn at the Pierce Ranch on the north fork (towards Tomales Point) of Point Reyes. This is a beautiful, rough-hewn historic structure, maintained bythe Park Service, and the patterns of lights and darks made fabulous monochromatic subject matter, particularly as the sun descending so it was directly coming through the chinks and cracks in the end wall of the barn.

My strategy with this composition was to focus on the grit on the floor in the foreground, using an aperture (f/8) that provided only moderate depth-of-field so the background went slightly out of focus.

Exposure data for this shot: 35mm, 4/5 of a second at f/8 and ISO 100, tripod mounted.
