I’ve posted a couple of other old barns and structures before and I guess I just love these aging structures. This one is located a block north of River Road near the Russian River east of Guerneville, right in the Russian River wine country area. I’ve been past this barn many times and always wanted to photograph it but never quite made it happen. So a week or so ago I took a day trip through the Alexander Valley looking for the wild mustard blooms and came away a little disappointed. Then I remembered that old barn. It was late in the day and I got some nice lighting and shadows to enhance the scene. The English daisies were also blooming close to the ground which added a nice carpet of color as well. For me, these old weathered barns hearken back to a time when we worked the land by hand. I’m just glad I finally got a chance to give this old barn a second look.
