I think this image is somewhere a little north of 500 shots like this that I have taken over the years. That's over 500 individual structures. Sadly, a great many of those have fallen prey to one cause or another.....a total collapse, barn-wood scavengers, etc., etc.

If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    Those autumn colored vines are the best part. Well seen.

    Thanks, David. Old barns and vines are bedmates.

    Hey, buddy. Yeah, it's copperheads. If I weren't so cautious about them, I probably wouldn't see half of those that I do see. Rest assured, my friend, I stay on red alert when I'm fooling around in their domain. Same goes for rattler's, who also love old barns.

    Very nice image! Old barns are always fun to explore and seem to convey a peace all of their own. Would love to be here in the peak of the fall colors. Thanks fo sharing this one.

    Thanks for the visit. Exploring and documenting old farm buildings is something that, at times, consumes all of my attention. And I agree, there is definitely an aura of peacefulness,, in most scenes like this, that I experience.

    I'm heading home tomorrow after spending a month up in the Southern Appalachians and Smokie Mountain chain. The Fall colors were absolutely the most brilliant, far-reaching in scope, and longest lasting display that I have seen in many years.....and I'm here every Fall.

    "...spending a month up in the Southern Appalachians and Smokie Mountain chain."

    Wow...if only. I keep telling myself that there will be a time when I too can make a statement like this.

    Ah, to have the time and ability to spend more than just a weekend somewhere. To be embedded in a location, to explore and scout, then photograph in different light, time of day, types of weather. Hummmm.....you can certainly make one envious. Tip of the hat to your passion and commitment to spending time doing what you enjoy and in doing so, enjoying life.
