A Barn From Last Summer

Yup, still burning through some older photos from 2012.
A sweet scene - rusty-roofed barn, a couple of trees, pond, nice rustic fence, hay bales in the distance.


A slightly different angle shows a big-butt metal barn looming behind it which kind of steals some of the bucolic flavor.

Morning Tex all this needs is a couple of cows or sheep grazing:) B

Maple Lane said...

Good Morning. Pretty scenery. Summer seems so far away! I am posting again after a long break.

Dianna said...

Such a sweet scene! I love when I can get different angles of a barn. As you said, some of them are more pleasing to the eye!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

A beautiful good morning scene, with the barn, pond, and trees. Have a great day!

That lake is interesting... looks homemade:@)

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Good Morning! I love the wooden barns but the metal with the red rust roof have a special charm all their own. And when they are sitting out in a field with a tree keeping them company, well they are just special!

RoeH said...

I have got to start taking more scenes like this. I see old barns all over and I just love them. Usually time is a problem and/or trying to stop on the busy highway. I always regret not getting a photo of old buildings I see. And one problem is that if I'm not driving, whoever is doesn't want to stop. (Poor sports!) :)

Maria said...

Simple enough and has lots of land.

Kate said...

You're absolutely right: the metal barn does not add to the rustic and rural scene your captured in the other photos. All-in-all, tho it looks mighty peaceful!

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

enjoy the 3rd shot. ( :

Allison said...

I love the wide open space!

A great photo Tex.
The area reminds me of around where I live. I must take a few photos of the old and new barns.!
That would make a cute little cottage

Daryl said...

yeah it does steal some of the ambiance but those two trees sort of smooth out the ripples

Beth said...

I think any of your barn shots would make a great jigsaw puzzle! Lovely!

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Has it all!

Pom Pom said...

Does everything turn brown when the hot weather arrives? I like my dose of "ranch" when I come over here.

DJan said...

I always love your barn shots, Tex. This was nice, even the third picture. :-)

Samantha said...

Idyllic summer days. The days when my eyelids weren't frozen! LOL

I really have to start looking for more barns.

Tanya Breese said...

haha, you and me both! nice ones!

I like the way it looks, sitting there all by itself.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Love those barns!!
Bet this scene looks pretty much the same now as when you took them in the summer! Have a great week!

Nordis said...

Great photo series.

Kerri said...

Nice!

Linda said...

I agree with Buttons that a few animals would enhance the scene. You're going to have to start taking Zim and Gem with you on these barn photography trips. :)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

My kind of place. I can just imagine some birds chirping and some locusts singing.

Ramakrishnan Ramanathan said...

Charming & isolated ranch in the wilderness !

islandwonder said...

Beautiful! I can practically smell the wonderful looking grass too.

Jan n Jer said...

Love the rusty roof! I am anxious to get back into barn charm when we return to Pa.

parker said...

Appears to be retired now. Just sitting there with it's lakeside view!

MTWaggin said...

I really like the rusty roof, gives the place some character!

Andrew said...

It looks like it's in a lovely setting...

Sally Crowe said...

Love when you post old barns; this one is no exception. Awesome!

xoxo

Nancy said...

A very serene scene...very peaceful....

nic.b van es said...

ja z,on andere hoek daar krijg je ineens een andere kijk op de omgeving.

Hanne Bente said...

Nice pictures you show a barn :) Hanne Bente

Farm Girl said...

I wouldn't have even known it was there. very nice shots.

Dawn said...

Solitude. I like it:D

Chatty Crone said...

Kind of sitting in the middle of no where....

A View From A Brown Dog said...

I love the rusty roof. I love to shoot barns as well. Perhaps the slight crop does take a little away but either way I would sure LOVE to have that much flat usable land and would fill it a few sheep, goat and of course more horses :).

Happy Monday Tex, have a great week!
Jen

Sylvia K said...

Love the feeling of solitude!!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Prime pasture and no horses or longhorns. Hmmm...

Betsy Adams said...

Great barn today, Theresa. I love the setting. Neat!!!

You are featured on my blog today.
Hugs,
Betsy

MarkD60 said...

That big barn is so far away, I can't tell it's metal. I think it looks OK in the scene.

Betty Manousos said...

charming barn scenes.

Janey and Co. said...

That is a sweet scene. you should paint it.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Pretty barn scenes! The first one is my fav.

Laura. M said...

A fine series of this barn. I like how you moved in for increasing detail. Nice post!

Karen said...

Ohhhh, what a peaceful pasture.

SweetMarie said...

Big butt barn?? You crack me up!!! Looks peaceful, nice photos! Keep digging these photos out. :)

Paula said...

Now thats what I like---a little water in front of my barn.

Gail said...

A barn with a pond...perfect.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I'm loving the rusty roof, trees and pond! (and - no snow!)

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Oh yes, and thank you for your feedback yesterday. I am going to try to fix my email thing today.

Patty Woodland said...

It would be scary to contemplate the printing costs if this were the olden days and you had to print all of your photos....

Wally Jones said...

This scene just oozes "Texas" to me. I need to visit my son in Houston to get "fix" soon!

Sandy said...

That looks like a long narrow pond...kinda odd

Debbie said...

You are a good picture saver t.....it looks a little lonely!

Red said...

This post a good panorama of a country scene. I like the rustic fence which looks to be in pristine condition. No cow or horse will get through that one.

Terry and Linda said...

Beautiful...warm, calm, peaceful...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz I could go for that!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Nice country scene! I love old metal barns like that. I don't think I've ever met a barn I didn't like though!

Marie said...

Very attractive barn!

Robin Lamb said...

T, nice scene! Funny what two steps to the left can do to a scene!

Lois Evensen said...

Nice. The tree on the side looks like it's there to add support in high winds. Nice big sky. :)

Bob Bushell said...

Love a barn!!!!!!!!!

Sketchbook Wandering said...

You've done it again: posted images from my childhood fantasy dreams!! PS Thanks again for you very quick note!! Did you know Charlotte's Web was written by EB White in Maine? I think that might be the ONE book I'd choose it I had just one!

Michaele said...

You never know what is hidden in bloggers photos : ) Rustic it is!

Giga said...

Samotnie stoi na środku pola, a przy nie dwa drzewa. Świetny widok. Pozdrawiam.
Standing alone in the middle of the field, and with no two trees. Great view. Yours.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

It is a sweet barn, wearing its weathered wood and rusty roof. Proudly standing with a pretty sky and clouds above. :)

Kris Beskidzki said...

Texas I only know from movies about the wild west. But here, very sleepy and peaceful.

Yours. :)

Margie said...

Peaceful. You are so right about the intrusion.

Findlay Wilde said...

Now that bard really would make a great bird hide. A little window overlooking the water. From Findlay

Evelyn S. said...

And all that open space! So different from where I live.

DIMI said...

Very nice barn Tex!Beautiful view!!Exellent shots!

Carole M. said...

FOREST SNAPPER said...

lovely pasture picture and a sweet little barn.

Ann said...

Nothing quite like the looks of an old barn. Love all the wide open space too.

Lisa Sall - Sall's Country Life said...

Sweet scene indeed! All it needs is a guy fishin'!

Fjällripan said...

Like the rosty roof! :)

Millie said...

That is an interesting little setup. It does look like it needs some livestock (maybe a goat or two).

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Lovely barn scenery as usual from your viewpoint! Great photos.
Hugs,
Mariette

Tiago Braga said...

Interesting place, looks a beautyfull and warm place

Yamada Miyako said...

Good Morning from Japan, dearest Theresa,

Oh, barn in the huge place; always amazed with the spaciousness♬♬♬ I agree and love the way you described about the looming bran behind☆☆☆ And also the balance of the sky, barn and the fence is great.

Love you always to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*


Cloudia said...

I haven't seen 'em! Thanks
Aloha

Carletta said...

Behind the fence, a barn, a serene pond and a gorgeous sky overhead - looks awfully good to me!

Jill said...

I especially like the first one!

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Ever so spacious these ranches ...

Brian King said...

Beautiful setting! Some of these barns appear to be a long way from anything else. I guess they serve a specific purpose where they are. And, seriously, is it too hard just to say countrified? :-)

A Quiet Corner said...

Metal and wood are my preferences but, it's certainly in a scenic spot! ...:)JP

Montanagirl said...

Yup, you're right - I like the photos where that metal barn isn't intruding on that neat barn!

Judy said...

It has everything in the shot...barn, pond, trees, fence and hay bales, now all it needs are some cattle.

Deb said...

lovin' the archives...

Deanna said...

yep, those pics have it all, a barn,rusty roof, fence, bales of hay. You hit the jackpot.

EG CameraGirl said...

It's great to have such a deep archive!

Pom Pom said...

Hi TexWis! I know I have word verification on. If I turn it off I get many spam comments that I simply don't want to weed through. I know it's a pain. My apologies.

sometimesthatsallyouget said...

Nice peaceful scene. Looks like a grazing paradise.

~Lindy

Genie Robinson said...

Nice barn...my question is...how many acres accompany it? It looks like the land goes as far as one can see. Thanks for your kind words about the tulip. This course is way over my head but am loving the challenge. That one picture was dark and dreary when I started and probably worked on and off with it for a good 5 hours. I know it is crazy, but I love every minute of the resetting and starting over til I get it the way I want it. I have always been the lover of the old masters so my pictures were all dark, but this course is forcing me to go LIGHT. Buddy is now painting my art room upstairs white like the library room. Snow due in tomorrow night...LOTS of it. Heavy wet snow. Maybe I will get the rest of the week off. Keep the fingers crossed. xo genie

Stephanie said...

Very nice barn shots! Thanks for your email. I will keep it in mind for when I start linking to other blogs. Just have so much to do these days.

Madge Bloom said...

Rustic and rusty... love it!

SandyCarlson said...

Beautiful world, my friend.

Randy said...

It looks lonely.

Susan said...

Lonely little thing. Needs some cows or horses.

Lynne said...

Interesting three photos with the slight changes . . . Liked the first two . . . and really like that gray pewter blue color.

Kat Griffin said...

beautiful and such peaceful puffy clouds ! I enjoy all your photos especially the birds the fences and the barns

pattisjarrett said...

It still makes for a nice scene. :) Lots of wide open space.

Karen said...

I want to jump the fence and run across that field! Lovely country scene! xx

EM Illustrator said...

Love this quiet picture, and the barns. Could just be sitting there for hours and hours...Enjoy your day

SquirrelQueen said...

That is a sweet scene, I love those old rusty roofs. It looks like someone still cares about it at least a little bit.

diane b said...

Nice wide open spaces scene. Little barn with two trees for company and the rusty roof gives it charm.

Une Angevine said...

oh il ne faudrait pas une crue car j'imagine l'état de cette cabane

Nancy Claeys said...

The newer barns just don't have any soul. :(

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I agree with Nancy! Those newfangled big butts are just clueless about charm.

Jeevan said...

Beautiful scenic!!

Tricia Hays said...

I like how you moved in closer & closer for a better look see! =)

Candy C. said...

I like the way you hid the big barn with your first angle! :)

Nell at njschout said...

Great country shot! I wonder what the barn was used for?

McGuffy Ann said...

I love barns. There is a wisdom in them.

barbara l. hale said...

What a difference an angle makes... Beautiful little barn.

Jori said...

Love,love barns and ponds!

Lynda said...

hmmmm - - - old and new - - - or crop the new out of the photo if you just want the focus on the rusted roof. Still pretty though.

Leave It To Davis said...

I had to look up bucolic. I never even HEARD that word before.
