February 6

I found this barn while out on a Sunday afternoon drive. I love the shape of this barn, the fence and the little windmill in the front of it.


Here's a view from the side.

The windmill looks oddly out of place - or at least out of scale!

Betsy said...

All those details along with the snow combine to make a very charming scene!

Carletta said...

The snow adds a beautiful touch to the red barn.
I have to agree with Lesley that the windmill is rather small and would have looked better placed elsewhere.
I'm intrigued by the quilt square on the barn. It seems unfinished. :)
Lovely shots!

I like the sloping roof and the snow that surrounds the area makes the red barn stood out. ^_^

The shape is nice and the snow just sets off that red. Beautiful!

Dawna said...

I like the shape of this red beauty as well. Nice to see some snow on the ground,,,there is no snow in our part of the Canadian prairies. Great Barn Charm find :)

This is one of the prettiest barns I've seen. I love red barns and this one looks wonderful in the snow! Love the fence in front, too. Great photos, Mari.

Susanna said...

it is a nice 'painting' with the red and white! what a big pile of snow!

here is everything nearly gone, but they do talk about the 'elf stedentocht' --11 town tour on skates!!--

Bek said...

Oh wow, I love everything about this one. The contrast with the snow is gorgeous!

Linda said...

Very nice shots - I have to agree that the windmill looks a little small for that big barn, but I like it anyway!

Judy said...

I love this one! The fence and windmill really add to the photo.

Tanya said...

wow, that windmill looks puny up next to that ginormous barn!

Kathy said...

Looking at the size of that roof, that is one big barn. I love it pictured in the snow.

Keetha Broyles said...

That barn is nearly perfect!

Finding windmills on farms is one of my favorite things. They weren't just ornamental - - - they used the wind to pump up water.

Beautiful barn and your photos, too.

Regards and best wishes

Rose said...

Oh, I so love these! I wish we would have had just one snow even with some depth to it.

Nancy said...

I love this barn you have posted....so beautiful with the snow.....

Tammy said...

That's a beauty :)
I like how the roof sort of disappears into the sky in the first shot.

Michelle Renee said...

Beautiful red and white contrast. Barns have so much character.

Hard to beat a red barn in the snow!

Ruta said...

I love the shape of the barn and those little icicles hanging from the roof!

Debbie said...

oh now that's a great looking barn. i LOVE the red, the shape, the splashes of white trim, the weathered wood and the windmill.

the farm animals and snow just make it extra special!!

soooo much to see and enjoy here!!

Nancy Reinke said...

Nice composition. Shabby white fence and pristine snow make the red barn pop The windmill adds whimsy and curiosity (as evidenced by all the remarks about it). This is what sets the scene apart. Something to question. You have a good eye.

Margaret said...

What is it about snow and a red barn. Stunning and worthy of many photo opportunities! I love the windmill in front.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Mari, you've outdone yourself w/ this beauty! That red PoPs so loud in contrast to the white snow! WoW! LOVE. IT.!

Thanks for joining =)

Genie said...

This would make a beautiful post card. It is so pretty. Love the vibrant red, the quilt square, and the windows. The little windmill is just icing on the cake. genie

Gorgeous photos Mari! The little windmill in the first photo looks like the 'garden ornament' windmill that we bought our Mom a few years ago. I like it.

Joanna Jenkins said...

It's a beauty.. And the snow is so perfect, it looks like nobody's around.

Stay warm. xo jj
