Barns as an afterthought

These barns are overshadowed by their tree and fence mates, I think.

Another shot of the 3 barns I posted last week, but with a little different view.

I think you are right...it is a lovely setting though and I really like the view through that interesting tree!

Jill said...

These are wonderful shots! I adore that large, beautiful tree but the wheel on the fence just blew me away. Love it!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

LOVE the one with the wagon wheel!! YES, I do.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Really like that cool looking fence in the second one:@)

Pam said...

Nice play on words and artistic views of the trees and barns, T. All three photos are perfect for framing.
Nicely done my friend!

Dicky Bird said...

Neat pictures. I think the tree in first picture must have a story to tell...

Nancy said...

Loving these shots -- especially the one with the wagon wheel -- awesome, dear! :)

Lindsjö taxar said...

Great pictures especially that one with the wheel in the front...

Darcie (My Modern Country) said...

I agree with everyone else-LOVE the wagonwheel!

Bernadine said...

You must be having some good rain where you are. The grass is lush and green. I'm hoping for more in my area. (I'm also hoping for a barn one day but I'll take a chicken coop!) :-)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Yes, the wagon wheel is a hit here too!

This is Belgium said...

gorgeous photographs

Sandra said...

i love all three, i like focus on the trees way more than on the barns. these are really great composition, all of them

Mamabug said...

Love these shots! Who wouldn't love trees and barns together!

troutbirder said...

Nice perspective & spooky looking tree... :)

DJan said...

What are those clumps in the tree in the last shot? I thought maybe they are nests, but there are so many of them that doesn't seem likely.

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

I love the trees! Trees are dear to my heart :)

Madge Bloom said...

Love those shots and your use of natural framing in each!

Lynne said...

Great photos . . . the last one my favorite . . . I was amused at the "leaf bunches" on the tree . . .

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I really like that steel wheel perched on that fence, it neat!

Thanks for your kind words. I feel better today than I have in MONTHS!!

Kat Griffin said...

Maple Lane said...

Very nice photos. Hope you have a great Monday.

Jan n Jer said...

Nice composition in these shots!

Faye said...

Those trees do deserve to be the centerpieces--such beautiful lines against the sky w/o leaves to clutter things. And is that mistletoe in the one? In KY we used to shoot clumps out of the trees for Christmas decorations--TX?

Tanya said...

oh i love that old tree in the first shot!

Donna said...

Lovely compositions!

Lois Evensen said...

Great composition in all three of them. Love the first old tree.

Susan said...

That tree is spectacular! Love the photos, very pretty!

Abhinav said...

Nice pictures :) The trees are very interesting!

Marie said...

Wonderful trees!

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

Love the barns AND all that surrounds them...gives CHARACTER!

Red said...

You teach a neat lesson on perspective. Old barn photos are a favorite of mine. Great shots.

Paula said...

I was wondering if that is Mistletoe in the tree? If it is, be careful standing under it. Hee hee.

sharon said...

I like the 2nd picture with the wagon wheel. such character.

sharon said...

I like the 2nd picture with the wagon wheel. such character.

Linda said...

I love the composition of all these photos. The trees and fences definitely enhance the total picture.

bailey-road.com said...

I love these!

Sylvia K said...

Always enjoy your barn photos and your composition! Terrific!

islandwonder said...

I love that last one. So peaceful looking.

Patty Woodland said...

Perspective is everything

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I like the views with the trees but my favorite is the fence with the old wagon wheel.

Charade said...

These are all such great shots. I recognize that first tree from one of your barn postings.

Rizalenio said...

Poetic tree in your first photo. What a refreshing post. :)

Ginger said...

Great shots...wish I were there today...stuck in the office. Blah!

FOREST SNAPPER said...

Great use for an old wheel,there seems to be a lot of space around where you live, that would suit me too.

peter

Kathy said...

Love the perspective on the second photo. And all that green grass in the third is a refreshing change from this time last year!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi TexWisGirl, All in the perspective of course. Great shots! The barn across the pond from me is being painted - a traditional dark red. I am glad for the change. I don't own or manage that barn so have no say but I do like the new color. Have a great day!

Eyeliquor said...

That is a cool tree!
Love the first shot

ladyfi said...

Fabulous tree shots! Love the clumps of leaves in the last one.

Farm Girl said...

I like the different angles. Not to mention the tree with no leaves and then with leaves starting to come out.

JM said...

Excellent compositions! The bare tree on top is wonderful.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Neat idea, Theresa... Love the idea of showing the barns --but with other things also... LOVE it....

That 2nd picture is really awesome.
Hugs,
Betsy

heyBJK said...

The trees are fantastic! And the wheel on the fence isn't shabby by any means. Nice barns, too!

Debbie said...

great shots t!!

i LOVE the composition/angle of the "wheel/fence" shot, that is one special image!!

Mama Zen said...

I love the way you composed that second shot!

Daryl Edelstein said...

barns are such wonderful photo ops .. and you've got a wonderful series here

R.Ramakrishnan said...

The lovely trees really overshadow the barns !

Rita said...

Sometimes it is more interesting to have the barn not be the focus of the shot. Especially with such interesting trees and fences. They need their due, too, I guess. ;)

don said...

A fine series of barn shots. Very good variety in the foreground items. That wheel is spectacular and the tree very interesting in its own right. Nice post.

Angela Häring-Christen said...

Nice shots! It's amazing, no hills, not a little bit :-)
It's so different from my country.
Greetings from Switzerland

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I especially love the view on that last one!

Jeevan said...

The bare trees are poetic! Wonderful shots... and I like the wheel.

pattisjarrett said...

The fence and trees are the perfect touch!

S. J. Q. said...

Love that tree!

Great pictures :-)

Bob Bushell said...

The trees are nice with it, not exceeding the barns

ShySongbird said...

I like the rather atmospheric trees and of course...the wheel :-)

I was thinking, where you have the menu about you, your husband and home, how about another about your four legged family. I know you do show them to us but it might be nice to see them all in one place...just a thought :-)

Tiago Braga said...

beautifull photos, love the green and the contrats with the sky, weel done =)

shutterbuggbitten said...

I do think they are overshadowed. I love that second shot!

EM Illustrator said...

I enjoy seeing all those interesting barns :-)

Ellie said...

I like the wheel in the front of the barn gives it a different perspective.

thesedaysofmine.com said...

How interesting! Love the angles - using the barns for background.

Robin said...

T, nice shots! What type of trees are those?

Michelle said...

The barns are great and those trees are like sculptures!

Margie said...

They certainly are, but I like these captures a lot!

Sall's Country Life said...

Is that last tree having some growth issues? Thanks for reminding me about Barn Charm!! (yep, afterthoughts all around today!)

EG CameraGirl said...

It's interesting to see the setting as well as the barn, I think.

Michael Manning said...

There must be a lot of history behind these barns! Great to wonder about!!

bon bon said...

wonderful compositions, tex!

A Quiet Corner said...

That third one is awesome, T!!!....:)JP

quies said...

Awsome. Lovely setting.
I love the wagonwheel and the beautiful tree.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Beautiful photos. Love the dots of orange flowers in the last one. All are pretty darn cool, tho!

Montanagirl said...

I LOVE that tree, and the different composition in each shot. Nice work!

Rosemary Aubut said...

Love the landscape! Great shots!

rkbsnana said...

Yep, you're right. The barns are kinda' like after-thought/shots. We saw the longest rock fence Saturday. I should have taken a picture. Very labor intensive fences, aren't they?

Julie G. said...

Very cool photographs! The beautiful trees have such character.

Icy BC said...

Oh that tree is really cool, and I like that wheel too :-) Beautiful photos!

RoeH said...

I was going to say I LOVED that tree shot with the barn. Then I was going to say I LOVED the wheel shot with the barn. Then I was going to say how much I LOVED the tree with the barn in the 3rd picture. I can't decide. They are all wonderful!!

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Great shots- each one. I think I like the one with the tree best.

MarmePurl said...

I need a wagon wheel

Candy C. said...

Great pictures!! I LOVE those big ol' trees!! :)

Barb said...

The trees make the scene.

Becky said...

Gotta love those trees. They really "make" the total picture.

Tracy said...

Yes, I have a tendency to agree the barns are dwarfed in comparison!
:) great photos Tex!

Michaele said...

I think the last is my favorite. I like the tree in the foreground.

Ruta said...

Great trees and an interesting perspective. I LOVE the wagon wheel!

Mari said...

Nice views! I really like the trees in the forefront of these barns.

Carletta said...

All three are lovely compositions!
Love the shape of the first tree, the wheel in the second and I'm wondering if that's mistletoe growing on the tree in the last shot.

Ms. Becky said...

ooh la la. ooh la la. I never write that twice. until now. that first photo is spectacular. all three, but that is my fave. happy day to you Theresa.

Tammy said...

Nicely done :) That last one is tops!, though I like them all.

Chatty Crone said...

I love number too - it could be the beginning of a movie or something - just makes me think a lot. sandie

Elaine said...

Overshadowed maybe, but very nicely framed. Lovely photos!

Tammy said...

Super photos Tex! I love the fence and wheel framing in the second shot, well done!! Beautiful trees also.

Linda said...

Love these shots...my favorite one is the second shot.

Randy said...

I love the tree in the first shot.

Deb said...

great shots Theresa....wow you get alot of comments every day....so good to see so many have found your wonderful blog....

wayside wanderer said...

Thought of you today. We are down on the Tex/Mex border and we were driving along when low and behold what do we see on the side of the road???? My first ever black bellied whistlers!!! Pulled over and spent some time watching them. Would have not known what they were if weren't for you. =D

Jo's World said...

Yeah, Teresa, where are the ducks?
Haven't seen any for a couple of days! Don't tell me they have headed for the Border!


Cheers!

Jo

Rohrerbot said...

I like the mix of shapes next to the barns. I think it's important to have a strong tree near a building...part of the character:)

Lindy MacDuff said...

Lovely character and composition to your images. :-)

BlueShell said...

indeed...I love the last one...and the first one too...
Here we do not have barns...
I like to see them. Hugs
BShell

Pat Tillett said...

I think you are correct! Nice photos...

polkadotpeticoat said...

I agree.....love the fence!

Betty Manousos said...

so beautiful!

lovely set of photos!

DeanO said...

Beautiful photograph's

Stewart M said...

I don’t think the tree overshadows the barn at all. It would not be as interesting without it.

Stewart M - Australia

PS: glad you like the burst of history!

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Interesting little patches of greens on the branches ...

CameraCruise said...

Beautiful shots, love your composition.

Betty Roan said...

The wheel is my favorite, but do love those trees. The last one looks like it was decorated as a Christmas tree.

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

I like the wheel on the fence and I still like the middle barn the best. Great shots..as always!

Nancy said...

That second shot is a knock out, Teresa. Wow!

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

I love big open fields like that where the tall grasses undulate in the wind.. was the wind blowing when you was there?
Great barns, esp the last, which I remember from last week

Thank you TWG! =)

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

ps that's a real funky tree! =)

Furry Bottoms said...

This is a big difference over last summer's posts. Last summer everything was so dry and yellow or brown... now it is all lush and green!

georgettesullins said...

Love the view of the little white barn through the tangled limbs.

SouthCoast Guy said...

they do look a little out of place

Liz said...

What a beautiful setting. I love all of these shots!!
My kids are horrified at my new found love of country and the desire to move there when hubby retires... though with 9 children, I'm not sure I could leave all the grandchildren behind.

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

Ok. I'm done commenting. I'm tired. I'll see you next week, freaky tree lady :0

Kat Griffin said...

I like all of these photos very well put together as far as the aspect and angle you go ton these . so interesting
