A couple of months ago after visiting my Mom I had seen this barn off of the interstate. Round barns are not the norm here so I was excited to catch a glimpse of it. Hubby and I couldn't find it when we exited the highway. A couple of weeks ago we were in the same area and this time we figured how to circle around to get to it. On the day we were there we didn't see anyone or any activity and no lifestock of any kind. It was hard to see inside the door of the barn but it looked empty. I hated that the electric lines were in the way but they were just unavoidable. When I took this we literally were parked on the little country road and I was sitting in the passenger seat. I added a little texture to this first image in post processing. I like the feel it gave the photo.

The back of the barn.The barn with a small shed.
This was our first look at the barn. The little shed kept me from getting a long shot of the front of the barn. I hope you enlarge the pictures. If you do take a look just to the right of the telephone pole on the right hand side. See that stone?I zoomed in when we passed the barn to see this small family cemetery in the field down from the barn. I wondered if those buried were some of the original owners of the land. Before the interstate highway it would literally have been in the middle of nowhere. No sign of an old farmhouse. Perhaps it was long ago replaced with the little trailer. I'm sure there's a story. I just wish I knew what it was.
