I made contact with the owners of this farm; Wright Family Farm to seek permission to photograph at dawn their pumpkin patch. I shot here once before, @ five years ago, when they used to have two large fields of pumpkins laid out all over them.
I was surprised that was not the case this time around. Instead, they had a humongous corn maze located there, but there where pumpkins still to be had in a more natural setting.
With this image, I did stage this shot somewhat by adding the two larger gourds in front of the other ones that were already there to fill out the foreground. A subtle, but pretty sunrise added a nice compositional element to the background.
I did not have to stage this shot, as these pumpkins lined up perfectly in front of the trio of silos and the adjoining barn behind them.
It’s amazing that in a blink of an eye, one goes from sunflowers to pumpkins!
I am honored to be able to offer my photography of the beautiful Hudson Valley in New York and beyond for all of your purchasing considerations. All of my photographs are available as prints, wall art, home decor, apparel, weekend bags and so much more!
Feel free to contact me with any questions that pertain to my captures.
