january thaw

the water ran off the roof of the gray barn,
leaping onto a snowbank with glee.

What a beautiful farm picture.
So the thaw has started, eh? Love the sunshine and blue sky at least. MB

I love barn and farm photos! Maybe because I grew up in Wisconsin, "America's Dairyland!"

Jacob said...

Another of your striking compositions - great lines and colors, Brattcat! Looks like a beautiful, working farm. Reminds me a tad of Minnesota...

Have a wonderful day!

By the way, you can ignore the comment by Safe Leif: He never grew up! Heh, heh!

Sunny said...

My favorite subject! Great picture, I love all the angles of the roofs.

Such a great composition, but I am not knowledgeable enough to explain why. . .something about the juxtaposition of sharp angles with soft arcs. . .

Great colors, light, shade, and composition. I guess the barn is gray so the red silo wold stand out more.

Sun and snow.. the best mix of winter!
The picture is like a painting of Edward Hopper..

This picture should be in Country Magazine!

Not bad, BC, not bad at all!

Great clash of geometry, very eye-pleasing palette, stunning light ...

And then we come to the topical vignette of verse which ties it all up superbly.

Bravo!

My favourite: American farms. Even better with the snow and the sound of the melting snow!

The red jumped out at me. Nice bold, chunky, solid blocks of colour against that liquid light.

Serenity is the word that comes to my mind for some reason, looking at this picture!
God bless you!
