One Red Wall

Red Barn Side

Nearing the end of a long winter, a farm stands in snowy isolation.

Sauk County, Wisconsin

    Aww – I wanna shoot them too.

    Well done!

    It is a sad time of year when we speak of snow almost in the past tense. I do find the scene peaceful and calming. The texture of the buildings is marvelous. Alas the snow will go soon, and I’m pretty sure the result will be mud. I’ll take the snow.

    I’m a sucker for a good barn photo. Make me want to peek inside and see if there’s hay in there that I can jump into. 🙂

    I really like this photo because it conveys the mood of winter isolation at a farm or ranch.

    I’m so glad people are capturing photos of these old barns. They’re going the way of the dinosaur.

    Wonderful shot, Barbara. 🙂

    I love the colors on the barns and the isolation portrayed by showing the empty ground in front of the barn rather than focusing on only the barn itself.

    very patriotic shot

    Great photo, Barbara! Reminds me of the barn my parents used to have many, many years ago. Sadly, it was torn down and replaced with a garage by the new homeowners.

    So very wonderful! I can’t think of what to say about it. I just want to sit and look at it.

    Still so much snow! Oh No! Mr. Bo!

    Great composition and colors. Old stuff is a hobby of mine.

    I love this so much, and I don’t even know why. It’s like a rainbow on the snow, but nothing you could make. It had to be that way through time and weather and trouble, and..

    I really, really like this. I’d like to have it framed in the living room.
