I love the weathered wood and the large tree. Great photo!I also like the leaning tree reflection and the view of the lake in your previous posts.
Fine looking old, red barn. Traditional barns are disappearing from the rural landscape here in the Midwest as fewer farmers keep dairy or other animals on the farm. Most farms now raise only grain, corn and soybeans. The traditional barns were red because farmers could mix their own paint from skim milk, lime, iron oxide, and linseed oil. The paint preserved the wood on the barn, lasted many years, and kept the barn warmer during the winter by absorbing sunlight. They also look good.
I love barns, too! Thanks for becoming my newest follower, Rita! I will also you!
