I don’t know what it is about my barns that fascinates me. When I’m out looking for images to capture I do not go looking for barns. Perhaps it is that during my formative years I worked on farms and spent a great deal of time in these barns. Who knows. I just know I enjoy photographing them and they always seem to draw my attention as I’m driving down the road. There’s been more than few times that I’ve done a u-turn and headed back the way we came. Jeanne will usually say, “You saw a barn didn’t you?” 🙂
These images are from Tuesday evening when I took an alternative way home. It was the golden hour and most of the time it doesn’t really matter what you put in front of your lens if the light is right.
I’ve photographed this old shed before. I think a couple of years ago in the summer time. It sits in a valley and I just like the way it looks when sitting on the hill overlooking the valley. I was looking though some of my archives but stopped after a couple of years not finding this structure. I know I photographed it, perhaps in 2010.
Toward the end of my photo session Tuesday I was heading west on this county road. Talk about a feeling of desolation. The temperature was 3 above and the wind was blowing 20 – 30 mph. I’ll be honest, I didn’t get out of the car to shoot this. I stopped the car and stuck my hand / camera out and took a number of shots hoping to get one good enough to share. My fingers were numb. 🙂
That’s enough rambling for one day. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoy your cold day. Be careful.
