Barn Charm With Fall Color

Hubby and I took a Sunday afternoon drive to enjoy the fall foliage and maybe, just maybe, find some photo opportunities for me. Our little drives often take us down one lane country roads where we find little surprises. I was so thrilled with the range of color in the leaves in the foreground which was right beside the road and right at my eyesight that I almost missed the barn tucked in all the splendor.
(A zoomed in shot of the barn.)
The red paint on the barn makes it seem as if it too is wearing its fall colors along with the trees.

Abandonment would seem to be the caption for this shot. The dilapitated structure raises lots of questions.
The colors are spectacular.

To run across this would be like finding hidden treasure. I love the range of colors and love the old barn.

Thank you for the comment about my stolen camera... it has been a strange thing... this is the 2nd time I've had my place broke in... I'm trying to stay positive, but it can be hard, but things are looking up due to my great blogging friends, ya'll are absolutely great & so very supporting! I love it! Now, that's a very positive thing

Really nice photos here. I love the colourful foliage and, of course, that barn with so much character.

Lovely autumn colours which we don't see in Brisbane. The barn looks like it has been painted in the photo to match the colours.

Genie said...

What a pretty spot. The barn looks to be in disrepair, but maybe someone will come to its rescue. The fall colors are beautiful. We went to Bear Town weekend before last and had the best time. My barn this week is from WVA. genie

A fine shot of the trees around this little barn. I like both views very much. Nice detail and interesting colors on the barn too.

Pat said...

What a great shot of this dilapidated old barn snuggled between the beautiful fall colors! This should be framed!

I really like older barns, and you are right, this one is showing us it's Fall colors too.
