Ethereal Barn in Winter

March 11, 2013
A solitary brown barn in winter at the foothills of vermont.

Solitary barn nestled in the snow.

The Beauty of Alone

I’ve always been drawn to solitary things. This aged barn was no exception. There it stood alone in a snow-covered field, beautifully framed by the ethereal colors of winter found in a hillside of conifer trees. To me this was the perfect color palette for this scene. I really couldn’t have asked for more.

Vermont Backroads

Once again it was driving the backroads of Vermont that lead me to this little treasure. The day was overcast and the temperature not too cold. The ridge of the tree line displayed a bit of fog as the sun tried its best to break through. I welcomed it as I felt the fog added to the mood of the shot. The true giveaway to the sun’s brief success was the barn’s shadow against the snow. It gave further dimension to the gently tilted structure.

I can truly tell you from experience that I usually discover the most interesting scenes while meandering off the beaten path. There is definitely something to be said about the road less traveled. I highly recommend it!
