So far we have managed
to focus on the bright and beautiful
during winter, effectively taking
our mind off of the sparkling snow
and glimmering icicles that are
adorning our rooftops, and
vehicles. Well, at least while
we are still cosy and warm in our houses, it’s when we get outside that reality hits. Hard.It’s cold outside,
Who in their right minds would leave the comfort and warmth of their glowing computer screen to venture out into the unknown, frozen north…..east, west or south and take photos?
Well, us/you of course. After all, this week’s subject is structures in winter. And one of the only things that will encourage me to get up early, bundle up, and leave the comfort of my computer is ….. barns.
Especially barns with snow on them, or barns in fog, or barns in the morning sun…I’m a barn stalker…yep, my name is Jen, and I am a barn stalker.
I have a black truck, with black tinted windows…a long lens, and I stalk barns. Barn-parazzi….want to join in? I’ve gotten some odd looks from the cows, while wandering down those country roads in my black truck, both windows rolled down in the below zero cold, erratically stopping wayside without warning, it’s a good thing the vehicles are few and far between.
I have my favourites, some I will drive for miles to get a shot of, and some are just around the corner but they are all beautiful in my eyes. Sadly most of them are starting to show their age, and some have fallen victim to the wrath of winter storms…roofless, sun bleached wood skeletons, they are still a remarkable piece of history.
So my choice for structures in winter is barns…may they shelter, and enhance our country landscape forever.
