Essence of a Barn

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 19 July 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

When photographing the Palouse, one has to remember to use a long zoom lens and capture the essence, or even abstract images of the design lines. I usually take a lot of vertical images, but not so on this trip - this was one of the few.

This is actually on the backside of the oft photographed wheel fence and barn. I was up on a hill behind the barn and found myself eye level with this part of the barn.

Final leg of the move to our new house is underway. Will be glad to be settled!
