You have a knack with sunrise/sunset shots.

Jack said...

This photograph is simply stunning.

Stunning sunset photo! Hope spring will arrive earlier than usual both on your side and my area:)

Sam said...

I am in love w your photography! I think mostly because I'm in love with Ontario. I spent all my summers on the St. Lawrence River on an island with my family and have been pining to relocate somewhere in Ontario near some fresh water. Not the St. Lawrence, though it holds such dear memories. My dreams drift to a cheerful stone house in the woods near a creek, river or lake. Your photos capture my dreams to near perfection. My website is under development - it seems my dreams are coming true with The Cheerful Word, where I help people write their life stories. You can email me at samuhl@me.com since my blog won't be up till the first week of April. Thank you for posting such beauty.

Oh, is that ever pretty! If I were there, I'd have to brave the obvious cold, and stand before it until it was gone. Very nice Skywatch picture today. ~karen

Leif Hagen said...

A wonderful winter sunset photo!Hey, why aren't you showing that on Tricia's "Barn Charm" meme? You probably have lots of barns near you - they're scarce in my city!

Beverley Baird said...

Gorgeous sky! You're right about winter's grip! More tonight and tomorrow!
have a wonderful weekend!

Carver said...

Your photography fills me with a good feeling. I love your skies and barns so much.

Cecilia Artista said...

Beautiful winter scenery!

Stewart M said...

Hi - I like the way that there is a hint of light on the shoulder of the barn. Details like that adda real depth to an image.

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

eden said...

Grogeous sunset.

Have a great weekend.

Pat said...

Gorgeous sky and snowy land. Here in the mountains of northern California, we're supposed to be getting 18 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow! And my daffodils had just started to bloom.

Arija said...

I love the thin winter light and deep purple shadows on the barn.

I worry a little about Canada with those massive solar flares happening. This is no time to have power outages. Our world news are a little constricted to say the least and Canada is very dear to my heart.

afanja said...

Great sky shot with the farm in the foreground.
Tanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend.

Birdman said...

A winter barn and sky? What a stunning combination.

I can see the breath of the cows huffing and stamping in the cold barn!

SKY-SEEKERS

The sky-seekers, some people say,
Do not favor night over day;
They always look up,
The sky is their cup,
And keeping it full’s their cachet!
