Green barns

 Somewhere in the Uxbridge area - east of East Gwillimbury

Okay, I'm on a mission now to see how many GREEN barns there are in my area. Mind you, that doesn't mean I won't be posting red and unpainted ones (as well as other colours because I like them), but I am on the look-out for the green ones especially.

A longer view

The golden color of the sunlight adds a lot to your images. They are really great.

There was a time in England where sometimes you could get planning permission for farm buildings by promising to paint them green. The thinking was that this made them blend into the landscape better. It certainly wouldn't have much effect if, like your barn, they were built on the skyline.

I like the way it complements the golden hues of both the hay and the growth along the fence.

What a great barn, I like the green! I will have to start paying more attention to the barns around my area. Great photos. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

Looking forward to see more of green barns in your area. Love these green barns and its golden surrounding.

Oh, I like this one. It's a big farm operation and a big barn. That first photo is a bit spooky, though. You wouldn't want to head to the fields on a tractor under that sky! :)

That seems unusual. I wonder how many others you'll find.

I had no idea barns were any other color but red. Nice pics of these green ones.

I love barns, no matter the colors but still the green barns aren't common everywhere. Keep it up

Sandra said...

i am liking this green barn, love the color, the sky, the shape of the barn itself. and in the long shot, LOVE the golden grass

Isn't that interesting! I so love the bright read, since we so often don't have colour: white snow, ucky brown winter grass. Cheers!
P.S. Love the church steps, too!

I may have said this before, but it's worth repeating ... Just can't get enough barn photos. There is just something about them ... And green is a great color for them.

Ah, I do love your barns and particularly these green ones!! I hope you find some more!! And you do always have the best composition for your photos!! I would frame all of them -- well, if I had enough wall space!! I hope your weekend is going well!! Enjoy!!

Very dramatic skies in that first shot.

Rose said...

Don't forget to link up! This is a gorgeous barn with a wonderful sky...just like everything about the photos.

Intriguing shade of green on this delightful, sprawling barn. Great scenes.

Tom said...

I'm ALWAYS looking for green barns and rarely find them other that those new pole barns with green metal siding. We have a bunch of yellow barns locally which are a bit unusual. This beauty also has a name on it, something "Crest." Thanks for sharing this week and I will look forward to your next finds.

Michelle said...

I LIKE these! No green barns where I live!

Kay said...

Oh, good! I like green barns! And I like these shots, too, especially the first one.

Liz said...

Those barns are lovely!

Darla said...

Well I quite like your photo's of the great barn. I had to laugh though as I first read the title as Green Beans. Oops!

Jack said...

Green barns? I can't remember any. When I get back to New England, I will have to start looking.
