Here is a deteriorating old barn and outbuilding with a field of red clover in the foreground. This is near North Plains, Oregon, about 20 miles west of Portland.
The depth of field is a bit shallow but I like it anyway.

Scanned 35mm negative.

Nice shot, Cal. One of those that make you think a polorizer would have helped bring out those clouds.

Very nice shot, love the way the foliage is trying to engulf the old barn and the red clover just makes the composition complete.

It's like a tiny army of red men marching on the fortress of the barn.



Very visually pleasing!

Thank you everyone for your kind comments.

Walter, I'm not sure but either I didn't have a polarizer at the time or the one I had was very poor quality and I seldom used it.

I shot nearly a whole roll of film in this location. I got the buildings from several different angles. I didn't get any real closeups since it is private property and I didn't have permission to enter.

I may have some surprises next week. There are several unique kinds of farms in this area and I am going out this weekend to shoot some of them.

Very nice photo, Cal. I particularly like the fact that not all the strawberries are on focus.This shot would greatly benefit from a deep blue sky with a few scattered clouds!

This is an awesome composition Cal...I love the red color surprise...the way the top of the line of the cloveris placedat the bottom third of the image was a good decision. Ive never seen red clover before...at first glance, I thought they were tulips until I read your post.

Nice work!!

Tulio, No strawberries in this picture. They do grow a lot of strawberries in this area but not in that field! That is red or crimson clover. I've never seen it anywhere but here in northwest Oregon.
