The Homestead

Posted on | June 16, 2012 | 1 Comment

I mention it from time to time, but I live in a wonderful part of the world. This is what I saw tonight to reaffirm that for me:

The Homestead

This is an old homestead that has been frozen in time for so many years.  About the only thing that changes is every few years the field in the foreground is in wheat or barley instead of hay. It’s on Main street, one of the most visible remnants of early 1900’s agriculture in our little town.

In this picture I was setup at the edge of the field with the tripod down low, shooting across the top of the barley plants. The clouds add to the scene as they catch the light of the setting sun and here and there a patch of blue sky is visible. Like it enough that you would be interested in a print? Contact me via email:

Last year on Father’s Day the clouds at sunset were a brilliant orange and I made a picture of that scene and recently I shared it on my photography website here: Orange Sky and Barn.

I never get tired of the different scenes of this house and barn that are created by the changes in the sky and look forward to the next beautiful display.
