Barn Charm - Red Barn on the Go

Okay, here's another on-the-go "Barn Charm" entry! The photos are from a couple weeks ago, when Livie and I were on I-80 westbound, toward Des Moines. This red barn is one of my favorites; we pass it about once a month - every time we head to my parents' for a long weekend. It's on the north side of I-80, somewhere west of the Grinnell/New Sharon (Iowa) exit (#182).

(You can always click on the photos for a larger view.)


I love the contrast of the red barn against the green of the soybean crop. It looks like this particular farmer is getting enough rain; let's hope his/her season ends well.
 
Another view of that great red barn (sorry about the bug remnants on the windshield - they're not TOO distracting, I hope). 


And one final  (kinda buggy) on-the-go view of this barn.

I'm loving the contrast between the red barn & green field, too, so beautiful! Looks like a fantastic & quite majestic barn... very big one!

You take great photos through your car windows!

Beth said...

Wonderful shots esp. on the go! I also love the red amidst the green.
I like the low open stall dwelling in front of the barn. I pass a big, long one like that on my way to and from work, but it's on a dangerous curve so I haven't gotten a shot of it.

These traditional shaped red barns are becoming very scarce in my area. Nice to see one that appears to be in great shape and still being used.

Carole said...

What a sweet barn. :-)
