If you've been visiting here the past few weeks you know Hubs and I spent a weekend in and around Cass, West Virginia. I was lucky enough to spot quite a few barns that hubby had to keep stopping for so I could take photos of all I saw. This first one was just off the highway on a side road. I love the washed out red paint. If you enlarge these you will see an advertisement on the end of the barn. The one word I could make out is Hermitage. There is an inn and restaurant named that nearby but I can't be for certain if there is a connection. Did you notice all the pigeons on top of the silo? The lightning rods atop the cupolas have little stars on them.
We decided to follow the little road in front of the barn for a short distance so I could get a photo of another barn below the road. The fields around the barn circled back quite a distance. I liked how the fall foliage on the trees and the green grasses on the bank of the roadway framed this empty hay wagon.
The fields had recently been mowed and I couldn't resist a shot of the rolls of hay. The sky was completely washed out on this particular morning so I've added a texture to this image. I like the painted effect it gives the photo.
