The past few weeks of participating in 'The Barn Collective', I've got really interested in all the barns around here, and in farming in general. There are many many barns yet for me to photograph, and I"m thinking I need to make this into more of a documentation of the barns before they disappear. It's the ones still in use, like these below, that interest me most.
I think this is one of my favourite barn pictures so far. I had a shot like this a few weeks ago, but there's more snow now, and the sun caught the bright red barn better in this picture. It's the framing provided by the tree that appeals to me.
The farm next door has a barn that is just really a one-floor drive shed, though I think they may have kept livestock in it at one time. This farm sold last year....
And I think the new owner is moving into cash cropping, judging by these enormous rolls of drainage pipe waiting to be installed in the spring, hiding on the other side of the barn.
And here are three for the price of one, the third one a nice red barn in the distance.
This is that nice green barn I posted a picture of last week, but a view taken from the opposite side. As you can see it's quite an extensive beef cattle operation. Some interesting fences too.
And if you look in the distance you can spot 2 or 3 of the workhorses on the farm out enjoying a day in the sun with the cattle. They share pastures in the summer too.
I think my posts on Sunlit Sunday are becoming a series of barn shots, as I also link in to
The Barn Collective, but so far I've been able to find barns in the sunshine for you to enjoy.
