I like the first one but then I'm a sucker for Farm landscapes. Not many of these old farm buildings left standing (vide the second image) and working. And, if we're not carefull they'll disappear before we know it.

I agree. The reason the 1st one has such a tight crop on the rt side is that there are two new "gleaming" steel grain bins just to the right.

Great shots, Rick! As a former farmboy, I also love barn shots! Thanks for cropping out modern stuff! That reminds me, I haven't shot any with the dl yet. I have to take it with me to work & get some on my route. I'm a delivery driver & 90% of my route is rural S. Illinois ..ie LOTS of cool old barns!

Thanks, Rick!

Ron

Ron, what do you mean "ex-farmboy"? You mean its not true that: "You can take the boy out of the farm but you can't take the farm out of the boy."

I used to really enjoy travelling to Coshocton (OH) a few years back and take in some of those farm steads. Unfortunately I could stop and take shots.

I love farm scenes, too. So different from the urban spawl I see most often. I don't think there's anyancient barns around here - buildings that were built in 1920 are considered old around here.

Makes me a little home sick. Grew up on a farm in Iowa.

Great pics.

Ok, Rick, I guess it is true... can't take the farm out of the boy...LOL! Today, I did take the dl to work today & found this old barn to have some character, especially with the antique tractors.
