well captured!
Interesting the use of this 'warm' filter associated with the solar collector.

I think I would rather look past Mass.

I'm not sure: on one side, I see a well lighted warm old house , on an other side I can't help thinking of the house of Norman bates in "Psychose"...!

Jacob said...

Very well composed...leading us right up that road to the house...I agree with Malyss, there's something a bit foreboding about the place...

Now, are you ever going to tell us what was under the red rooves?

Kate said...

Reminds me of the Plains. That's alotta sky! Beautiful tone.

Sharon said...

I enlarged this one to get a good look. Fabulous house!

Sunny said...

What a great house and I bet the view is spectacular. I'm glad they didn't put the solar collector on the roof.

This house looks like it is the shape of barn and a silo. I wonder if it was built new that way or if it was remodeled from a house and barn.

Oh my! That is quite the house. Look at all the windows. the solar tone is almost sepia---or is it? MB

Is almost looks like one of those old barns they redid into a large house on the TV program, This Old House series. A beautiful shot and a spacious and expensive house.

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my television show.

It looks so big! I enlarged it too. It's a very unusual looking house. I like it!

Big sky but we can't see Massachusetts...

Amin said...

Beautiful house..........

Irina said...

Painting? No, it is a photo of great artist.

VP said...

Malyss is right: my first thought was the same...

Virginia said...

Your photos make me realize I have so very much to learn. Merci,

Nicely done in sepia. I had the same thoughts as Abe. I wondered if it was one of those barn conversions on "This Old House".

Clueless in Boston said...

Nice shot and composition. Is that Norman Bates's house? Or the caretaker's from The Shining?

Carraol said...

Great rural scene and your choice of tone and composition are superb!

Hilda said...

Now this is what I call a big sky! Awesome. Not something I see everyday.

Amin said...

Beautiful photo.

Sharon Creech said...

This could almost be out on the prairie! I think some interesting people must live in that converted barn.

Paula said...

That's an amazing sight...to live in a house like that must be a wonder.

Tash said...

OMG - fabulous photo.
The big open sky gives so much depth to the photo. This one is a top contender for your photo book.

Brown sky.
