This barn is a few miles from my house and I shot this photo in the fall of 2012. I went back several times to shoot this barn but I was disappointed to see that it had been torn down and the corn fields surrounding it replaced with apple trees. I’m not surprised about the apple trees. New York State produces some of the best apples in the country. But I do miss that old barn.
But you do have this one and you will always remember this old barn.
Beautiful image, a bit melancholy too.
Thanks, Malin. Actually, I have many images of this barn but this is my favorite.
I can understand that this is your favourite.
This is such a great photo, very beautiful. These clouds are amazing !
Thanks, Jocelyne. That whole day was amazing!
That’s very sad to think that grand old building is now gone. I like the way it is placed in the frame with so much space to one side
Thanks, Andy. The color shot shows the fields to be a nice golden color with the blue sky in the background. I like that combination but the barn itself is white.
Beautiful big sky.
That’s quite a compliment since this is not “big sky” country.
I like the brown tonality here.
Thanks, Steve. The tone is from a preset I made in LR5. The presets help keep the tones consistent in a series.
I love this picture and I understand you missed the oldbarn, but you can eat delicious apple.
All my best wishes to you and your family Ken
Thanks, Chantal. There is no shortage of apples around here.
Very nice Ken – great sky and processing. I remember other shots you have shown of this barn. What a shame that it is gone.
Thanks, ehpem. I didn’t think we needed any more apples here but I guess I was wrong.
This is one of the reasons we do what we do, my friend. If not for you, this place would just be a vague memory to someone somewhere, but as you’ve posted it here in such a lovely way, it’ll be remembered for years to come. Absolutely terrific, Ken, great photograph. Happy New Year, my friend!
Thanks, Toad. I sometimes wonder if there is any historical significance of what we do. I like to think the work I do at the Museum is noteworthy but time will tell.
