Barn Charm

The weekend trip Hubby and I took in October gave me many opportunities for barn photography. This is yet another of our finds that weekend.
It was a gray overcast morning when I took this photo not far from the entrance to Spruce Knob which is the highest point in West Virginia with an elevation of 4863 feet.
I added a texture to my original photo and played with different blending modes to achieve a much brighter photo.
(Click to enlarge and enjoy the detail.)

A pure white barn including the roof is not a common sight. Keep on clicking.

I loved everything about this photo! Thanks for capturing the perfect shot!

I'm smiling, because MOST LIKELY this barn is among my photos that we took on one of our West Virginia train ride trips!
This is so nice with the fence, and the cow just adds to it!
My barn charm entry today was taken on our trip to W. Va. in October, but I think it was taken in Va.

It's a pretty barn in a lovely setting. Carletta. And it's nice to see the colored leaves in the background.

Hi Carletta,

Most definitely a beautiful & very white barn! LoL! The fall colors, the barn, the cow, the fence... it's a beautiful shot! =)

I almost know how to easily do textures. Your texture here is very soft and nice. The cow silhouetted in the middle is a great capture.

I love old barns. Don't see many of them here in CA. I also like the old barbed wire fence in your photo. Nice!

Ruta said...

That barn is a beauty! It looks very well cared for.

Carletta...Do you know the road number for the barn over by Seneca Falls. Buddy is always going over there hiking around and about, and I want to go over and see that red barn. It is gorgeous. Love yours, too. White ones are rare in our parts. Hope you are having a nice holiday. School was out yesterday so I am one happy camper til the 3rd of January.genie
