27/365 "Old Red Barn with Hay Bale"

"The Old Barn"
"The Red Barn"
"The Hay Bale"
 Drove by this barn taking my daughter to school.  Before 8 am, the blue sky was streaming in through the red barn slats - it was so beautiful.  By the time I returned, the light had changed.  I also saw a herd of different colored and marked cows in the pasture surrounding a bale of hay. I will definitely have to get some gumption up this weekend and get up with the rising sun.  So many possibilities...  The first sepia image is for the Black & White Wednesday Challenge.

Love this picture as a black and white, although I love the red one too. I can't help it, I just love barns! You did a great job on all of them. I like the middle one best because I think the old fence really adds something to the picture.

I love the old fence and dead tree. Fun to experiment and see what composition and coloring works the best. I have so many things I want to draw. I just run out of hours in the day.

I just love old barn photographs, and these are wonderful.

That is the spirit! Part of the challenge is being on location when the light is right. It adds a whole new layer of complexity to shooting photos. It is good to revisit a location several times to see the different possibilities. I like this old barn. I look for them too around here but some are hard to get because they are on private property and I always wonder if someone will come out with a gun! I just picked up a nice long lens to solve the problem. Keep up the good work!
