The prairie grass is sprinkled with Spring blooming Indian Paintbrushes, a perfect accent to the red barn.
Have you ever wondered why so many barns are painted red? In searching for the answers, I found so many theories, it is impossible to tell you all of them.
The funniest one I found was, "So a farmer's cows could find there way home".

I love to tease with the camera...to make this shot, I sat down on the ground.

This picture is absolutely beautiful to me. I've always wanted a big red barn. Instead I have a small red house! :) Love the old mail boxes too.ReplyDelete
I remember the post where you wrote about it....Delete
Great perspective! Sometimes it's good to try a different angle than the one we see if we're just standing on our feet. This is simple beautiful! The spring flowers really add a nice splash of additional colors.ReplyDelete

No matter how you made the shot, it is very nicely done.ReplyDelete
The flowers really accent the barn. If I got down on the ground to take a photo, I could not get up!!! lolReplyDelete
