Sunday Stills: Barns

This week's challenge should have been easy -- no shortage of barns in the Willamette Valley. However, there aren't many spots where I could safely pull over on my travels to take photos. Then there's the whole trespassing issue. :-)

So I did a "barn study" at CEC. Beginning with the original little barn (an open mule barn at the time of purchase), the arena barn in the background, and Phantom obligingly grazing within frame:
Top half of an old "Dutch door" now sealed shut:
Speaks for itself, the barn door left open:
Once the outer wall of the little barn, now the blanket wall:
Gotta have hay storage:
And stall shavings:
Old meets new in the little barn:
From the Archives
One of my favorites, the rusty roof of an old barn with Mt. Hood in the background:
And the "high end" arena barn at one of the region's premiere dressage facilities:
To see how others met the challenge, visit Sunday Stills.

Very Nice!!! Yea, I had to pull over to get my shots...but stayed at the fence lines!
Phantom was so good to stay in frame there!

I love the rusty tin roofs too. Great barn photos.

I love the first shot of the barn and the pasture. The photo with the barn with Mt Hood in the background is spectacular.

You did great, I visited our neighbors barn, he had new steel doors on an old wood barn, looked totally out of place but at least he is keeping up with the barn!
