That's got to be an old stanchion milk barn. I've milked in one before...it's not a good feeling. We had an acqaintance who had milked a herd all of his life in a stanchion barn and was between two of his cows and they kicked him to death. Cows aren't the most brilliant animals. They just react. Still, you capture is very nostalgic and exceptionally composed.

@sherri: thanks sherri. that's a terrible story - seems like an especially miserable way to go.
I really like these soft greys. The image feels like a memory, voices echo in the silence.

Great image. Timeless quality.

J'aime beaucoup ton N&B. Ce petit rayon de lumière est des plus réussi.

I like te half house framing with the naked trees - excellent work

Pretty and nostalgic. You feel the age in the earth as well as in the building.

Though you often take very detailed pictures of buildings and structures that I love, your "long" shots are really superb. The compositions are fine.

Great shot. The lonely sunbeam crossing the barn and possibly a b and w rainbow? Nice capture.

i like the warm light crossing this shot, seems to imply hope for the coming spring and even perhaps for this old place.

I like this view of the farm house with the "stuff" stacked around it. The old "snag" out back would seem to indicate the site has been occupied for many years. Nice shot.

I'd like to see this painted without the rubble.

Interesting foreground. best...jerry

The strip of soft sunlight leading to the barn and highlighting one corner of it is lovely. The different degrees of shade, and the transitions from shade to light are the main attractions yet I equally like the structural elements – especially the dark object in the center of the image. But this one is all about the light for me – lovely, lovely light.

Wonderful moody image. Nie balance between the tree and the barn.
2 Mar 2009 4:27pm
Another good job of transforming the mundane.

The lighting is indeed exceptional. The light in the sky and the way it falls over the building. Even though the trees are stark against the sky, and the building is abandoned, there is a sense of optimism.
2 Mar 2009 5:29pm
The way you captured the light is wonderful.
2 Mar 2009 6:54pm
Superbly captured, characterful and wonderful light. A really timeless feel to the shot
2 Mar 2009 7:38pm
looks like there is a hint of rainbow, i like the great long shadows in front of the abandoned building (it matches the sad mood).

Very beautiful old farm.
2 Mar 2009 8:16pm
That wonderful light there in the middle, it somehow belongs to the whole scene...

Buen encuadre y composicion, me gusta este caseron, bueno quizas sea un granero.
2 Mar 2009 9:55pm
You know I like contrasty images Grant! This is one of the best.

@Bill: thanks bill

3 Mar 2009 3:06am

3 Mar 2009 4:37am
Lovely scene. Reminds me of an english show that used to be on the tele.
4 Mar 2009 2:55am
One of your best Grant. The light is superb!
4 Mar 2009 2:00pm
@Chris Parr: thanks chris
Wow, this is wonderful, Grant. I especially like the light and the trees.

Sherri reminds me of thoughts I had this weekend. We were looking at property that had cattle on it and I was telling my wife about a conversation I overheard at work. A rancher this guy knew was injured by his cattle and the guy telling the story was remarking that if someone who had grown up on a ranch and been around cattle all his life could get injured so easily, perhaps it wasn't a good idea to buy acreage and run cattle when you have no experience.

@Twelvebit: i've never worked on a farm, but i do hear stories like that. it's amazing how many ways there are to get hurt - especially when you consider involved with a family farm.
