Rainy day barns....

This time for The Barn Collective, I am showing barns taken this past Friday...a dreary, rainy, foggy day.
This is one we see after we leave Crawfordsville...we were going at a good speed when this was taken.  And was taken with my little Canon SX700.  I was pleasantly surprised...
We took a round-about way home...instead of going the usual route, we turned on to Indiana State Road 59 and went south.  This is one that Roger paused for me to snap a shot...an lovely old barn.
If you will notice, you can tell I am shooting through the windshield...again, Roger paused.  We were lucky...there was hardly another soul on the highway.  I have messed with this a bit to get it sharper.
More misty, through the windshield shots...traveling at a good clip on the one above and the one below.
This set of red barns has fascinated me for years.  They are just north of Mansfield, Indiana.

I hope you have a barn, or if you even see someone with a barn post, please encourage them to join us at
The Barn Collective.

Your pics all turned up good, even though taken through your wind screen. I like the foggy look of your 1st pic.

Hello, great drive by shots. We have been having some dreary days too. Nice collection of barns. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

Sandi said...

Delightful! I wonder what stories these old barns could tell.

I enjoyed looking at your barn series. This post is a good mix of paused and moving shots. A fine job of shooting.

You have some grand barns in your area, well worth recording. I recognise that weather!

I like the first one, too, but my favorite is the third one.

Lovely barns. I must say the overhang on those red barns is quite interesting.
