Old But Cared For

 Unpainted barn under moody sky

I really like the look of weathered wood on a barn, especially when the barn is well-cared for.

Lovely.. with wonderful, dramatic skies.

Jenny said...

What a contrast between the heavy sky, and the bright sun on the barn.
It gives me mixed emotions, like a Bronte story.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, I do SO agree with your!!! Superb captures as always and love those gray, grumpy skies!! I agree with you about the unpainted barn, all it lacks is some paint, but otherwise it does look so well cared for!! Yep, you've done it again and made my afternoon!! I hope you have a great new week!! Enjoy!!

Beautiful shots! I love the look of light in the foreground against that kind of dark sky. I've decided that's something I like about winter (I'm looking for reasons to stay cheerful).

Beautiful photo of the barn and fence; love that sky! We always enjoy going outside to watch when a front like that moves in.

Mary Hone said...

Nice! And the skies are perfect for photography.

It's not often you see them unpainted EG.. it's almost as if the paint is there to protect against the weather conditions. This one is doing pretty well without the paint.

William Kendall said...

Very dramatic against that sky, EG!

Sandra said...

i like the way the light hits the barn in the 2nd shot, moody but the barn glows... when i saw the title, old but cared for i thought you had me and my hubby on your blog today.
