Barn Charm, On the Go, 30 Jul 2012

Okay, Livie and I are back from Des Moines (having gotten home, yesterday, exhausted from our 10 days away); I got a few shots of some great old barns on our way there and back.

This awesome old barn is in need of attention. It was on the north side of I-80 (and obviously captured "on the go" as we headed west). It's somewhere in that large, lonely area of Iowa farmland in between Coralville and Des Moines.


I'm joining up with "Barn Charm" this week, which is hosted by Bluff Area Daily. Please click on the "Barn Charm" button below to view the rest of this week's "Barn Charm" entries:

I know the area well. The land may be good farmland but its pretty much featureless until you get to the margins of the last glacier retreat east of Newton through Des Moines. Its even more prominent east of Tama on Highway 30 going to Cedar Rapids - those hills are called the Bohemian Alps.

That barn has been a handsome one in its younger days.

That's a great shot for a drive by. It's amazing how many barns I see while flying down the interstates! Thanks for dropping by at mine.

A drive-by bokeh--now that's a new photographer's trick! And what a lot of character in this old place.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...
