Barn Charm: Heading East on I-80

Here's yet another on-the-go "Barn Charm" photo. This was taken on a very overcast, dreary Saturday over Labor Day weekend. We'd been eastbound on I-80, heading to the Quad Cities area for the 2012 Quad Cities Air Show in Davenport, IA.

While it seemed like all of eastern Iowa was overcast, the clouds having parked over us permanently, or so it seemed, the rain was pretty much hit-or-miss; maybe we'd get rain, or maybe we wouldn't.

However, this photo was taken just about the time we got to "the rainy area" where it basically drizzled all day. Once we got to "the rainy area," I'm not sure it stopped drizzling for more than a few minutes at a time. When it wasn't actually drizzling, it was very lightly misting us.

Anyway, here's the on-the-go photo I took of the farm (please click on the photo to get a somewhat bigger view of it):
The red buildings really stand out against the greenery (and the cloud cover). I adore red barns. Barns of other colors certainly have their charm, but there is just something about the red ones that I love.

I love red barns, too - and that's such a great stormy looking shot. It makes me think of the Wizard of Oz!

Looks like you were already in a plane and zipping on a low pass to get the shot.
