A Few Barns in the Valley

I got away on an adventure this week, to Niagara Falls, but I haven't sorted out my pictures yet.  So I looked through my pictures from the last month or two to see what I could find.  I've pulled out a number of barn pictures that I hope I haven't shared before.

This was of course a few days ago, when we had our brief first snow flurry; it shows up well on the ploughed field.

This on the other hand was more than a month ago, when the soybeans were still in the field.

This two was a month ago, when the fall colour was just beginning.  I think I've posted another view of this barn, which sits below Old Baldy, in the last few weeks.

This is a totally different barn view, extending over the entire valley.  I think there are at least 8 barns that show up in the picture, most of them tiny rooftops in the distance.

A former dairy farm, this is the busiest farm I drive by almost every day, heading into Markdale.  Always seems well cared for.

Two different views of the same barn - which do you prefer?

And finally, a really big quilt barn I don't think I've shared.  I think this quilt block just went up recently.

  5. Definitely the photo with the tree on the Left hand side. lovely. And a barn quilt to finish your day, perfect for us quilters. Has Mrs F.G. decided it might be a good pattern?

  6. Barns are so photogenic that until the last one collapses you'll have a lifetime of subjects.

  7. I think between the two of us we have a pretty good photo handle on many of our old Ontario barns.

  8. It is amazing how much food is grown in this country and how much space there is for food production. I especially like that first scene.
