Grimes Mill

I was on a video shoot about PDR (Purchase Development Rights) land in Fayette County (Lexington), Kentucky. These are lands that are protected from urban development in order to use the land for agriculture, cattle, horses, and even tourism. It costs a lot of money to purchase and protect our disappearing landscape in central Kentucky. We were shooting on the property of Grimes Mill Farm that borders Madison County near I-75.

The featured image was shot this with color film, though I envisioned it in black-and-white. It was mid-morning (and extremely humid!), and I was fighting the dappled sunlight. But it was my only opportunity to shoot these. I think the dappled light actually works with the Boone Creek shot. I like the brown water highlights and the light on the trees in the background. It helps the depth.

It’s best on overcast days, but we aren’t always blessed with those when our schedules can sync.  It would be optimum to shoot near sunset, but the cemetery closes a good 3 or 4 hours before that. And getting there just after sunrise is not an option.
