Just another snowy December day in New England

Although it snowed here today this was actually taken a few days ago, through my windshield. There's no place to park near this barn so basically I stopped in the middle of the road, took a few shots, and moved on. It was an absolutely beautiful morning.

I wish I had some history on this barn but I don't. No doubt it's quite old since it was built right next to the road, across the street from an adjoining old colonial home, and with a huge sprawling field in the background. From what I can tell it doesn't appear to be a working farm any longer, but it sure is pretty.

After wanting to see the New England fall leaves, the next thing on my list is old farms. I love the red outbuildings and the stone fences, etc. I envy your scenery!

Looking at this photo I can "hear" the crunch of snow my boots would make as I walked this road. Thank you for such a wonderful sound. Sea Witch

Judy said...

If it is no longer in use, someone is doing a good job of keeping it looking good!! I always wonder about the farms where the road runs between the house and the barn like that...

Jay Albert said...

What's that white stuff???? Great shot Sharon! I almost want to seek out that barn and catch the late afternoon light.

We lucked out here in Gloucester. Just rain and a bit of snow. I heard New Hampshire got dumped on. This is a wonderful image.

So beautiful to look at..and so cold to the touch. Glad I'm looking at it from a distance. My blood is thin!

Mary said...

Through the windshield, eh? I do that all the time, but I'll bet we have more traffic down here in Jersey than you have up there in the land of endless snow! LOL

Mary said...

Annonymous, I'm sorry but I don't know what that little building is for. Sure wish I did!

Pat, I hear you on the almost part. There are days I wish I could never see snow again! We haven't had much of it this year. What little we had on the ground is being washed away by rain tonight.

So glad you all enjoyed this photo!

Will i ever have a chance to see the eyes and the soul that capture these excellent moods in this blog through the medium called camera? I feel as if I am resting in peace, one with nature.

Marvels of nature
Are plays in time
Masking the seasons
To keep us colorful
And cheerful.

Advance Merry Christmas to you,your loved ones and to all the readers of this blog.
