Barn Charm

This week for Barn Charm I'm posting a trio of barns surrounded by fall foliage. We had snow flurries here all day Saturday and it was just above freezing so winter is upon us with flurries expected again tonight and tomorrow. I took all of these this fall and if I don't post them they will get buried in my archives. :)
This first one is along a rural road not far from my home. The 'pink' siding on the barn to the right really caught my attention.
The above barn is a drive-by shot taken on Interstate 64 as we returned home from our daughter's last month. It is near Clifton Forge, Virginia.
This is another drive-by and at first it looks in fairly good condition; but looking closely the roof is buckled in a couple of places along the front.
Linking up with Tricia's Barn Charm.

Simple, timeless with a lot of character, these barn are very beautiful

I like the settings on the second picture. A barn is so nicely stands by the beautiful mountains.

Excellent pictures!!!

I like the barns, but oh, I so love the backgrounds. I think I would be happy if it were fall 8 months of the year.

Love the red machinery adding oomph to the 2nd and 3rd barns. The setting of that second is a classic--would make a wonderful postcard.
All are great!

Mari said...

Nice barns, and the foliage is beautiful. It's starting to snow here, too.

Interesting how all of these farmers were creative and built a barn to their own liking.

EG CameraGirl said...

I like that you also captured red farm machinery in the 2nd and 3rd photos.

I love your barns, Carletta, but it's the beautiful scenery that is really catching my eye!

Great barn pictures, Carletta... We haven't had any snow here --but it's raining tonight... We've had some cold temps---but when it's cold here, it's CLEAR and SUNNY. Now that it's raining, it's warmer... Oh WEll---maybe we'll get some snow sometime. ha ha

Hugs,
Betsy

These are great barns, Carletta! I love the fall foliage and the vines on the barn in the first one. The fall trees in the background of the other two are wonderful.

I love that little building leaning in the center of the first photo. I wonder if the sun is making the barn look pink. LOVE the hillside in the background of the second one! Wonderful photos!

Sally in WA said...

Great captures, Carletta. These look like classics.

Carletta said...

LAVENDER DREAMER - NO, THE SIDING WAS PINK. I THINK PERHAPS IT HAD BEEN RED AND SINCE THIS SIDE FACES THE AFTERNOON SUN IT HAS FADED TO THIS LIGHT PINK. :)

Kathy said...

The first photo a wonderful collage of American barns of the past. Love it.

don said...

A fine trio of barn pictures. Nice variety in these barns. Too bad that one starting to see a breakdown in the roof. Fine drive-by shooting too.
