Ohio is great barn country! Yesterday when we did our errands, I decided to count the barns I could see off the I-75 between Bowling Green Ohio and the interchange with I-475, roughly 13 miles. I counted 52 barns and a mosque in the interesting buildings off of I-75! I mentioned the mosque because, like so many holy buildings, it’s a gorgeous piece of architecture! But FIFTY-TWO barns! Anyone who wondered why they chose to paint barns in each county for the Ohio Bicentennial in 2003, well, 52 in 13 miles just outside of the metro area here might give an idea why!
As for today’s barn…
Last week, on November 30, David had a flexible day off and he took it then because there had been some nice snow cover west of us in Ohio and in Northeastern Indiana. We woke up before dawn to get to where the snow was to photograph trains, barns and anything else scenic. We got some great train shots and I took some beautiful shots of flocked snow on the trees through the passenger’s side window, but this was the first barn of the day, breathtaking with the fresh snow and light from the rising sun!
This was in Montpelier, Ohio, taken off an overpass that David drove back over a couple of times to get the right angle. The white barn and white snow and golden morning light just begged to be photographed!
