There's no shortage of crumbling barns this close to Toronto.

it does make a great shot with the snow even though it is falling down.

A really awesome and rugged setting. I'm sad that the barn is in such a shape, but with the snow it makes a great photo.

This makes the imagination run wild!...:)JP

Hopefully it's just the buildings crumbling and not the farms.

Bethany Carson said...

Very nice shot, but poor old barn! There are plenty of barns and even some houses in similar condition around here.

José Mendonça said...

I love decay shots. No way I can take them with snow here... :-)

Buttons said...

Oh yes lots of crumbling barns along the 407 sad indeed. Great shot. Hug B

Great photo but sad to see these places going down and in the future, 'growing up' into housing or commercial space. I guess life goes on eh?

see you there! said...

What is it about pictures of ruined structures I like so much? This is great with the contrast of the snow against the colors of the building and field.

it is still beautiful in some ways and what a shame it is falling down.

A variation on 'That's the way the cookie crumbles.'

This one has seen better days.

All that snow on the roof won't help either!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I feel so sad seeing them like this. Poignant, I suppose.

Lowell said...

Why so many of these? Have the people sold out for residential subdivisions? It's kinda sad.

Penelope Puddlisms said...

I imagine the weight of snow over time increased damage to the barn. Even dilapidated and somewhat of a danger zone, the structure has charm.

Bob Bushell said...

The snow will make it fall down. Fabulous photo EG.

Nicki said...

It looks like it may still be serving its owner - even in this state of disrepair. Beautiful photo.

Mary Hone said...

Love those old barns, and that one is very nice.

The snow makes this old barn even more scenic.

Wonderful photo

Sylvia K said...

That old barn may not serve as a home for the horses and cows anymore, but it does indeed make for a great shot for the day!! You are SO good at finding those great shots and I'm so glad you share them with us! Hope you have a great new week!!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Poor barn - but it's a beauty!

poor old thing!

Hilary said...

I'll bet it was impressive in its day. Still is in its own way.

DeniseinVA said...

These crumbling barns still hold a lot of beauty in their decline, and with the snow this is a very pretty picture.

RedPat said...

It's sad to see!

Halcyon said...

There's a certain beauty to these crumbling barns!

Judy said...

I can still hear my grandmother commenting on how that barn is coming from together!!!

Ginny said...

What a shame. We have them here too. I asked Phil about them, and he said that people only have enough money to fix up their houses. Farmers are usually poor.

Great photo of the crumbling barn. It is huge and must have been important for shelter when it was built.

Donna said...

So lovely even in decline....

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They are so fascinating and eerily beautiful. But I always want more of the backstory. My husband just says "corporate farms .. No more little guys". So sad.

Kerri Farley said...

Made for a great shot though!!

Cynthia said...

It's sad they are falling down but they have such character. It's the same here, and I often wish they could talk.
