New England’s Red Barns in Winter

February 25, 2013
A red barn in Vermont contrasts nicely against a fresh fallen snow.

Backroad Barns and Fresh Fallen Snow

One of the things I love about driving the backroads of Vermont and New Hampshire are the many barns and farms I stumble upon. It’s always a nice surprise to came around a country bend and see a picture perfect New England scene such as this newly painted barn after a fresh fallen snow.

Eye-Catching Details

Naturally the contrast of the bright red barn against the pure white snow was certainly eye-catching. What really struck me, however, was the architecture of the barn itself. I loved the intersection of the two main parts of the building. The patterned stripes of the roofing material, along with the roof peak cupola, classic barn door design, and split rail fence further endeared me to the scene. Add to all that, the tree-lined background — rich with winter color — and this was definitely a “must shoot” scene.

Thinking Ahead

I think a return trip this October might be in order to see how the fall foliage changes the look and feel of this scene. I bet the colors of autumn would frame this barn beautifully!
