39 years ago today I did the smartest thing I have ever done in my life. I married my best friend, soul mate, lover, confidant, and life partner Jeanne. It’s been an amazing journey with peaks and valleys as all things in life are. Way, way more peaks for sure and the valleys have strengthened the bond even more. Thank you Jeanne for a wonderful life together! 🙂
Yesterday I took a 4 hour drive through the country side. Some familiar roads but a lot of unfamiliar roads. I took two cameras and two lenses. The long lens unfortunately never made it out of the bag, which means that I didn’t find any wildlife to photograph. So today I have barns for you. I love to photograph farm structures and especially barns.
I thought the contrast of red and green was appropriate for the season. 🙂
I went as far North as Guttenberg looking for some eagles or other water fowl but found only a couple of sea gulls flying over the lock and dam. I did spot a Coyote in a field hunting but he took off running when I slowed the car. He would have been too far away to photograph but I could always hope that if I remained in one place long enough he might come my way. I also saw a huge hawk but same story. After spending 15 minutes slowly getting into range he decided that was close enough and he took off.
Finally I’ll leave you with this barn. I don’t think I have ever seen a barn this color. Really caught my eye so of course I had to turn around and photograph it.
That’s it for today. Thank you for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
I love your barns. I, too, love taking photos of barns but when we are in Florida for the winter I’m not able to. They don’t have them in the southern most area of the state. Tomorrow we head up to Michigan where there are lots of barns and I feel a ride in the country coming on.
Thanks Pat. Safe travels. Yes I love to look at barns and photograph them. What i’m not good at is stopping and talking to the farmer and learning the history of their great old structures. I need to do that.
Thank you for your kind words. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving. All the best.
