I'm lucky enough to get to drive through the rural parts of suburban Chicago to and from work. It breaks up the monotony of buildings and shopping malls.

Last fall, I came across this storm during my trip home:



The huge double rainbow was to the left of the barn - out of sight in this shot, but I did manage to capture it on other pics.

Here's looking to the southwest:

Another great photo. I go county driving just to find old barns in the fields.

Nice country shots. I think it is time for me to do that some more.

Please try to reduce the size of your posted photos to under 800 pixels (long dimension). When you post a photo that is 1170 pixels, not only does it take longer to load for those still using those modem thingys it also makes the browser think that every posting in the thread is that wide and makes it necessary to scroll to read the text. Thanks for keeping this in mind.

Both are beautiful shots. I love the color in the first shot.

Thanks!

I've got a thing for photographing barns and lighthouses - just can't get enough.

calr: I'll try to keep them down to 800 pixels! sorry.

Well, Lapstrake, you need to come to Oregon. We've got lots of lighthouses, barns, and covered bridges.

Who would have thought something that clam and peaceful could be found just outside of Chicago.

I love this, very nice work! I wish that tree wasn't hiding the front of the old building, can you sneak back out there with a chainsaw?
