Old Barns and Farms


These are two different farms around Newtown. You might remember Stone Meadows Farm from a black and white photo last week. The top one will be my photo for the Old Barns meme at Bluff Area Daily.
The one thing that my last several posts have in common is that all of the photos were taken with a point and shoot camera and if I didn't remember to put it in my pocket I would have missed them. :)

Bonjour James!
It's so nice to see the sky blue, here is always grey! :(

Great photos. I think point and shoots are good.

Thom said...

Awww the good old point and shoot. My favorite. I don't have so many things to have to remember. Wonderful photos my friend :) It looks more like it would be in Iowa or Nebraska and Pennsylvania. I have a totally different image of PA in my mind. But it's rapidly changing :)

The fam is the kind that works well, all is in order in and around it. The second picture shows a very attractive opened skyline, I like the warm soft light of winter.

Simply beautiful!

These winter skies are lovely!

Rose said...

I love the big sky feel to these...

Jan n Jer said...

The big blue sky dwarfs the farm...great compostiton in both photos.

Great images of crisp fall days. the cloud action is particularly striking on the first. Those clouds add so much movement to an otherwise still scene. I know what you mean about always having a camera on hand. I joke that mine is really an oversized necklace!

Big sky country.

Tricia said...

I didn't even see the barns or anything past that BLUE sky in either shot! WoW! I love love love pics w/ such a fantabulous blue sky backdrop!!!
I focused my concentration on the barns, I was able to see them, too! Very nice, very white... I'm so glad I started this meme so I can see the barns everyone posts each week! Thanks so much

White farms are rare here. This farm looks very well kept.

Owen said...

There is beauty shining all around us far more often then we know... the hard part is seeing it...

Carolyn Ford said...

You couldn't have picked a nicer day to photograph at this location. Wow, that sky compliments this pristine farm...beautiful images!

Coneflower Ranch said...

Love the big sky! Beautiful photo!

RuneE said...

You have a very nice way of catching the charm of these old places.

Martha in PA said...

Beautiful shots! Just goes to show, it's not always the camera...you've got the "eye".
We need a new P&S camera (well, hopefully I can get Tara's repaired since it's still under the plan from the Geek Squad!) These are great shots. It's great to have the "big" camera, but at times the P&S (or in my case my iPhone) is what is on hand! Stay warm!

Beautiful atmosphere James. The depth of these pictures I think come from the gorgeous cloud formations but whatever the reason you have definitely tapped into the third demension of my two demensional laptop screen! Wild.
