Canyon Barn

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 21 June 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

This barn is situated on a basalt ledge of a large canyon which was carved by glacial action in the more recent past. The place is very picturesque and makes a fine drive with an appropriate 4-wheel vehicle down to the stream connecting two lakes. I post a barn each Tuesday in support of Tricia's Barn Charm where you can see many more old barns.

Sure looks to have established itself there - truly part of the landscape. And what a landscape, too.

A beautiful setting for this well used barn. I love that ladder hanging there, and your angle of view is great.

Beautiful picture Don. Graceful in it's rustic run-downedness, and especially charming because barns are animal houses, and represent man's timeless tending of them. Nostalgic.

Don, a nice addition to barn Tuesday. I don't believe I'd use that ladder hanging down from the loft doors. ;-)

This is a good one; I like the detail in the aging red paint that you have captured. Since the glacier was "recent," I wonder whether you have any snaps of it (LOL).

The rural landscape and the old barn definitely make for a beautiful composition. Lovely capture don, this image would look great as a painting too.
