Barn Charm

Winter has made a reappearance in my neck of the woods.  We're hoping it's not a significant or long stay, but considering it is February, not really surprising either.  Here is a barn set back from the road a bit.  I realized after I was home and uploaded the photos that my focus was only on one section of the barn.  I'll have to catch that next time!  I think the setting sun colors and snow on the ground save the photo anyway.


More Tuesday fun:

Your barn images make me want to drive the country side and find some interesting barns! Lovely sunset!

I looooove old barns so I think this is lovely with or without the selective focus!

That is a lovely and very atmospheric photo! The coldness of Winter contrasted with the heat of sunset casting its firey glow.

I like how you've only shot part of the barn, actually. But, ye, I would like to see ALL of it too. :)

Elaine said...

I agree with Tricia. The composition of the whole shot is very good, and the sunset gives it the perfect touch. Beautiful shot!

The sunset colors and the feel of being out in the countryside are great in this "Barn Charm" posting! Fun to discover your blog through Tricia's weekly barn meme.
