Neighbors’ Barns

What a weekend! Left the house Friday morning to bring my daughter back to school. She is going to SUNY Binghamton for Biology. Just a little over 2 hours to get her there, haul everything to her room, take her to lunch and then head out to my Dad’s house. Three hours later I reached Bemus Point and although I had nothing but blue skies for 95% of the trip it is overcast and grey. So much for any exploring with the camera.

Saturday was nothing but snow and wind. The family event I was attending was interesting to say the least but only on account of the weather. Finally made it back to my Dad’s house and settled in to wait for the storm to pass. My only concern then was which path home on Sunday and that would depend on the weather. Mother Nature was nice to me. Clear skies and no snow for the whole trip back home.

But enough about my scenic tour of NY State. This week’s theme was all about barns. I knew I would have some great chances around my Dad’s house but those plans went out the window. I managed to get out around my house Sunday afternoon and tried to be a little more creative. I only took the 55-200mm lens with me. Two reasons really… one was to get some detail images of my next door neighbors barn and secondly, the other barn in view from my house is over a half mile away.

Here is was I came up with…
