Barn in a Cornfield


I spotted this barn in the middle of a corn field while on a trip to Mankato.  It is somewhere around New Ulm, MN




Playing around in Pickmonkey.  I don't even remember what edits I used.

Linking to Barn Charm at Bluff Area Daily
&
Green Day @ Raindrops and Daisys

Have a great week everyone.

See you next time

That is a barn that is built to last and stand the test of time.

The corn is a sweet setting for a barn. Of course the farmer is not thinking that way I know. I also get lost in editing Barb.

Pamela Gordon said...

That is a beautiful photo. The barn looks like it's being swallowed up by corn.

I have never seen brick used on a barn before just out in the field. Fancy I would say.

Love the stone foundation as well and the hint of once red paint!
Your fun processing shot is lovely!

Bev said...

Looks great with the brick!

Looks like MN corn is getting all the rain it needs. I like the way you "planted" this barn in the middle of the field--looks like it just sprang up there. This photo says summer!

These cornfields I only see in American movies and photographs always make me want to plunge into them for some reason! Great pictures! (I'm here through Green Day)
