Barn or Hangar

This is another barn from our weekend trip in early October. It was across the road from the barn I posted with the ad on it. It sat in a huge field - no cattle or horses could be seen. There was a long stretch of bottom land on both ends. Look closely and you can see to the back of the barn an aviation windsock. Everything we saw led us to believe this was a short airstrip. We passed this barn both ways and could not see behind it. It would have been nice to know if a small plane or helicopter was parked behind.
Enlarge the image to see the windsock, the lightning rods and the lovely fall foliage.
Linking to Ruby Tuesday and Barn Charm.

That's a pretty barn-whatever it's purpose is! The colorful background is awesome!!

Ruta said...

The white looks so pristine! Great barn.

TexWisGirl said...

wow, it's really beautiful! the roof almost seems to mimic the foliage, and the fresh white paint is beautiful and clean!

Rose said...

This is a great shot...I bet they have one of those ulta light planes...you know the kind that looks like parachute material stretched over the wings...I almost think some of the wings fold somehow.

Elaine said...

Beautiful barn, and what a fantastic background! It makes for a great photo!

Mari said...

This is a beautiful barn! The setting is gorgeous as well. I love the thought that it's used for an aircraft.

A beautiful barn and I love the fall foliage in the background. Love white barns with red roofs!

Cheryl said...

Lovely barn. Can you imagine making that by hand?

This is such a great shot... not only the barn, but the fall colors behind it are incredible!

Robin said...

How lovely. If it is a hangar I love that they've worked it to fit in with the landscape so beautifully. Great catch Carletta!

Beautiful image.

It just looks like it has been painted into the scenery.

Ralph said...

You find the nicest barns! I like this building sitting on a rare piece of level land, and the foliage rising up the steep mount is a perfect accent. Almost heaven indeed in this view!

Mrs.D said...

what a lovely shot...:) I just love the beauty of fall foliage in the background.

Dianna said...

I'll have to look back on my photos from last year to see if I took pictures of this barn too! This is beautiful.

I'm thinking there is no other reason to have a windsock. Right?

The landscape is just stunning, isn't it? Beautiful.

Just beautiful with the fall leaves behind a white barn! I could not find anything like that this fall. I also love the photo in your header. Happy Holidays!

Andrew said...

A wonderful barn to see.. it would have been converted in a house by now in the UK.. and a luxury house at that.

Beautiful capture.

The white of the barn, shows off the colors of the background more! Great capture, Carletta:)

MarieElizabeth said...

Gorgeous! And look at the colors in those leaves. It must have been a nice fall for you.

I love the pristine look of a freshly painted white barn... lovely photo... Larry

A fine, very large barn and silo. It makes a fine Barn Charm shot. The windsock certainly suggests an airplane nearby.

Hi Carletta,

That is one beautiful barn, love the white & also the red roof.
The fall colors are gorgeous! =)

Thanks

Jeanne said...

Wow! Such a beautiful barn and what a setting it is in! Lovely capture

kaye said...

It's probably big enough for an airplane

Woody said...

I don't often see white barns and the red roof is pretty neat too. Beautiful fall trees, too.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Another gorgeous barn, Carletta... It's in good shape... Bet that land is used as a air strip also...

Love the Fall colors.
Hugs,
Betsy

Neal said...

Carletta, that is a really nice picture. I love how it's sitting out there in the open with the colorful trees behind it.

We have a family living close by who has a large field out from their barns which is used for 5 little 2 seater planes. This may be more commonplace that we thought. Nice windows across the side and on the end. It really is a pretty one. It and the silo look to be in good shape. genie

dr momi said...

I'm sure it was a barn to start with :-) Instead of a red barn...a red roof..I like it :-)

Denise said...

What a lovely old barn. I have enjoyed catching up on your posts Carletta, you've caught some beauties.

EG Wow said...

Good looking barn!

George said...

I agree that this barn is most likely on an airstrip. Whether it is a hanger or not I cannot say, but it certainly is in a beautiful setting

Paxie said...

The colors in this shot are gorgeous!

Mark Kreider said...

That barn would have been right at home where I grew up in Indiana. Nice shot!

Arija said...

A beautiful and beautifully kept barn.
