That barn in the landscape

barnlandscape-0146

Structures, architecture, an iconic imagery of labor and farming and agriculture. Wetlands still pooling from the rains of winter.  There’s a story here and that’s what we look for isn’t it? The colors – the blues, the browns, the greens. Textures in the trees, the field, the sky, the water. Shadows and light. Lots to see here. Lots ot photograph and compose.

In the Distance

Landscape, and the bigger picture. Broaden the view where light and shadow can alter the vista. The way the sunlight burnishes the roof of an old barn, with mountains in the distance. There is detail also in landscape and the way the light captures that detail.  The lines and angles defined by the shine of morning sunlight. Glimpses of remaining remaining snow in early spring. Slanted roof, curves of mountains and trees, horizontal  rows of readied land for spring planting.  That sense of sleepy awakening.
