I thought of cropping this image down to the barn, but I liked the barely visible house in the trees and the countryside in the distance. So I decided to leave image a bit larger. I'm linking to Rurality Blog Hop.
This is a beautiful scene! I'm glad you didn't crop it. Love the red barn and the star in the peak.

I really like the larger landscape. I like the "feel" of the surroundings your view gives.
It's a great barn.
15 Jan 2013 5:43am
An interesting barn and a great shot.
15 Jan 2013 5:50am
I like the forested background!
15 Jan 2013 6:10am
Lovely scene Don

Beautiful country scene and you were wise to let it as it is. But either the picture or the barn is dipping down on the left :-))))))
15 Jan 2013 8:02am
@Veronique: I tweaked it a bit, just in case. :-)
superbe image!!! amitié

Agree with others on the no-crop decision . . this makes for a wonderfully connective image with the purposeful barn in the full setting. A very fine image, Don.
15 Jan 2013 9:46am
I agree too ...loving the Barn series Don.
15 Jan 2013 10:31am
I think it was the right choice to show the bigger picture. That barn looks remarkably house like :)
15 Jan 2013 10:34am
Love the red touch here, superb scenery.
15 Jan 2013 10:46am
Don, ich finde den Schnitt so in Ordnung. Schöne klare Aufnahme.
15 Jan 2013 11:10am
I have the same snow this morning... but no with sun... Nice rural landscape Don
15 Jan 2013 11:14am
I'm glad you didn't crop it down either. Sure is a nice barn.
15 Jan 2013 11:16am
that's a biggie! beautiful scene, glad you didn't crop it!

15 Jan 2013 12:57pm
A beautiful composition !
15 Jan 2013 1:24pm
Une magnifique grange... Belle vue enneigée. )
15 Jan 2013 1:25pm
That is a beautiful picture. I love that it has so many elements in it... barn, house, trees, snow, fences. You captured it all.
15 Jan 2013 2:00pm
VERY NICE! You made the right decision. Sometimes the subject is more attractive when seen in perspective.
15 Jan 2013 2:41pm
love the snowy surroundings, great mood
15 Jan 2013 3:14pm
it's beautiful. glad you left the hillside and the house and trees in the background, too.
15 Jan 2013 3:18pm
What a beautiful setting for that big red barn!
15 Jan 2013 4:16pm
familiar beauty , just like here in Ontario !
15 Jan 2013 4:24pm
15 Jan 2013 4:28pm
brr.. it looks chilly! :) nice catch!
15 Jan 2013 4:49pm
Excellently photographed Don ! I also like how to the left behind the trees is a structure of some sort.
15 Jan 2013 5:15pm
good idea not to crop it ... the "things" behind the barn add a lot of depth and info! love how the barn makes for a strong colour contrast in an otherwise winter white image !!!
15 Jan 2013 6:16pm
This barn looks really beautiful in the snow. I really like the architecture. A lovely winter scene!
15 Jan 2013 6:43pm
Beautiful scene. Beautiful barn and Lovely composition. Great shot. :)
15 Jan 2013 6:48pm
A lovely rural snowy landscape.
15 Jan 2013 7:30pm
I am glad that you left the shot uncropped Don! It has a wonderful rural feel to it! ;-)
15 Jan 2013 7:33pm
beautiful rustic scene in snow
15 Jan 2013 8:19pm
I like the barn and the environment in which it is located.
I have noticed for some time that the exterior paint of various barns are often in this color. It works very friendly and I like it again. It snowed today. We had a lot of fun......
15 Jan 2013 8:23pm
Glad youleft the complete photo because it is pretty country!
15 Jan 2013 8:26pm
Very charming snow covered country landscape ~ a very attractive capture!
15 Jan 2013 9:51pm
Even before I read your comment I was prepared to type "I like the way the trees obscure but don't completely hide the farmhouse on the left." I don't like the distant ranch style house on the hill very much, though.
15 Jan 2013 9:55pm
i agree with your decision
15 Jan 2013 10:59pm
I too, am happy you didn't crop it ... the barn is all the richer seen in its natural surroundings!
15 Jan 2013 11:14pm
Beautiful photo of this wonderful place and I also agree that you have not cropped the scene ...
16 Jan 2013 1:16am
A very pretty winter landscape. That's a nice barn.
16 Jan 2013 1:38am
A nostalgic scene that takes me back to my roots. Well done.
16 Jan 2013 7:44am
Oh yes, it looks beautiful just the way it is. Love that big ol red barn & the hilly countryside!
Thank you so very much for continuing to join in each week, Don! =)
16 Jan 2013 8:13pm
I love this shot...
22 Jan 2013 3:56am
The barn is charming - but the snowy scene is an additional element of beauty in the photo.
7 Feb 2013 6:16pm
This snowy winter scene is SO pleasing, a red barn with a diamond shaped window... I'm glad that you didn't crop tighter, the wider view is wonderful! Thank you for joining in 'Rurality Blog Hop #1' Hope to see you next Wednesday for #2...
