REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Half of a Hundred

It's Tricia's 50th Barn Charm ....just think of all the great barn images that have been posted on her blog during that time! Last weekend, when I was looking for more barns to photograph, I started to wonder if I'm going to run out of them some day.   Meanwhile, I found 3 or 4 "new"ones in the county where I grew up. This is an area known as the South Fork of the Lostine River in Wallowa County of NE Oregon, and it borders wilderness area.     I love this image; that's why I've left it SOOC.    (The road actually runs to the left of the barn and makes a sharp left turn....it just isn't visible behind the grass.)  The barn has a green steel roof...and the blue haze in the air is the result of forest fires in Central and Eastern Oregon.

Lovely color palette here. The barn roof kind of matches the background.

Love this barn! And the haze adds a nice mood.

I was going to ask about the haze... I don't understand why people aren't more careful!

Evelyn, the barn is GORGEOUS & I love the shape of it... love that lone tree on the hill standing watch, too. You really captured a great scene

Thank you millions =)

Magical serenity.

That is just an awesome SOOC shot! Love the blue hue on the barn and how it contrasts with the background.

Love this barn! The blue haze was an added bonus that day....but too bad it was from a fire. Stoppin by from Barn Charm.
