Sunday Stills - Barns
This week's Sunday Stills challenge is barns and who doesn't love barns! I'm always making Riff stop the car so that I can get a shot of another barn, and I grew up in Northeastern Oregon where some of the very best old red barns stand against the rugged Eagle Cap mountains. Awesome sights! This week Ed said to get a different prospective. Maybe inside the barn. Well, this week I didn't have access to the inside of a barn, so I took my camera with me on my travels hoping to get something a little different.
This first barn is in Southern Washington, outside of Grays Harbor. There were what seemed to be thousands of ducks swarming the skies above the barn and field. In this picture you can just see one leg of the swarm. I don't know what they were doing, but it was an incredible sight to see and you should have heard them all. quack...quack...quack. Incredible.
Just down the road, headed west, sits this old weathered barn. Here in the country, barns that sit close to the road like this one does are often used for advertising. Anybody up for a celebration of Washington's oldest covered bridge? Don't forget to vote for the Mayor!
I had never seen an A-Frame barn before, had you? I love this one. It is also on the Washington side of the river, out in the woods around the Deep River area. It was clear back on some country roads that we were exploring, hidden in the tree's. What I wouldn't give to go inside this on.
Thanks so much for coming on my barn tour today. Now I'm off to visit all of yours...
