Barn, Fence, and Critters

On one of my evening drives in the country, I came across this pretty barn, along with cattle, and fences.  I like the way the late day sun shone on the barn and cattle.










The end.
I guess any of them could have been the end.

We are having some relief from the heat and humidity, but still no rain.

Love your pretty farm pictures!!! They are so peaceful and calming. Looks like the cattle were a little camera shy only showing their behinds.

Love all that white trim on the red barn. It's very pretty! And the cattle just make the pics extra-special.

A barn always looks more complete when you have livestock in the photo. Nice job.

heyBJK said...

Very nice, Barb! The red with the white trim is classic barnage! I like the pitch of the roof, too. Great job framing the barn in the trees! Critters are always a nice touch, especially on a farm.

You captured the sunshine beautifully. I'm glad that you are getting some relief from that terrible heat.

Beautiful barn--love the red with the white trim. The cows complete the picture. I love how curious cows can be--they'll just stop and stare at you or even come up to the fence and say hello! Terrific photos!:>)
