Barn Charm

The Skagit Valley is full of farms with barns.
The only problem is trying to photograph them -
there's no where to pull off onto the side of the road
without risking falling into an irrigation ditch!
I managed to capture this one
somewhere near or on Fir Island...
Happy Barncharming!

What a lovely photo of this iconic barn!

Beautiful! Those trees really add to the shot. Are they lombardi poplars? Of course the red barns/buildings are stunning.

I know what you mean. I had to pass on many barn photo ops while traveling through eastern Oregon and Washington. No place to pull off, made even more challenging when steering a small house down the road. You have a very nice barn photo here.

I was going to say "hey, who's in my valley" but then It's you and that's ok and it really isn't MY valley. LOL

Cool shot. Yes I have been (almost) in many ditches trying to get a good shot. LOL MB

I love that tall roof and the row of windows. Nice find!

A beauty of a barn! And I love the other two red barns in the distance. The tall trees add interest as well. Very pretty scene!

Forgot to say I love your springtime header!

Lovely Skagit scene! I've done a few barn shoots there myself, and you're right, it's not always easy to get good shots of them. But, there are so many and there's always another one just down the road.

Red barns are beautiful.
We haven't red barns in Switzerland.

Linda said...

The red barn is very striking, even from the "safe" distance! It is a challenge to get those shots, isn't it! I have been known to ask the husband if he will turn around and take another s-l-o-w drive-by so I can get the shots. Of course, that isn't always possible!

Veronica said...

That is one gorgeous barn...beautiful scene all the way around.

Don't you hate it when there is so much to photograph and no way to do it?
