Summer Ramblings - The Barn

Summertime is fleeting where I live.  Each moment must be enjoyed.  Each flower must be appreciated.  Each landscape must be studied.  For soon, the green season will be over and the chill of fall will take care of the flowers and the green.

This is the cycle of the growing seasons in our four season climate.

I'd like to show you a barn in upstate New York, near Windsor, New York, photographed by the friend I call my "guest photographer".

She travels the rural roads,and fell in love with this barn.  She took some of these pictures on a misty day and another in sunlight.  Which do you like better?

The flowers are beautiful, but the advertising signs are even better.

The morning mists common at this time of year.

The flowers show themselves in this angle.
The roof and an old silo.
And one last misty view.

What kind of summer photos do you like to take or see?


  1. Lovely photos, Alana. especially loved the misty one. Here in the UK summer is a myth, or so I feel. :(

  2. Those photos are lovely. When I first moved to my home in 1972 it was in the 'the country'. There was a wonderful old barn nearby painted with a picture of the Mona Lisa. Gone now, of course.

  3. I find myself obsessed with photographing flowers in summer. The barn is lovely BTW.

  4. You're right, Alana, the signs are just as good as the flowers! I take photos of EVERYTHING, especially while I'm doing the 365 photo challenge! Everything is an opportunity to get my daily shots in!

  5. I think I like the first one the best, but they're all pretty good.

  6. I love taking pictures of hills in every season. There's something very peaceful about hills.

  7. That barn has great character and the flowers are beautiful. Each photo has its charm. The mist adds another dimension.

  8. I love the images that you post on flowers and nature. It gives me a sense of peace.

  9. HI Alana, I loved all the snaps posted here. Each depicts separate emotions, isn't it. Lovely.
