Lone Barn



This is the second barn in my 
Scottsbluff, Nebraska collection.

It sits in a corralled area all by its lonesome.


No other buildings.

No livestock. No signs of life, save a few birds in the trees.


I didn't get a sense that it's abandoned.
Although it's elderly, it's still in good shape.



As is the fence.


Quite a bit of character, I'd say.

    1. I agree. Except for that metal overhang, it appears to be made entirely of lumber.

  2. I kind of miss the farmlands of Illinois. when we lived there, we had lots of friends who lived on farms. I know it's a lot of work to run a farm, but it sure seemed peaceful.

    1. It is peaceful, Dena. I grew up on a small farm in NW Illinois in the 50's and 60's when life was pretty simple. I keep trying to get back to that simplicity. I'm getting closer.:-)

  5. What an interesting barn! It looks like it is wearing a skirt. :) Looks like the little roof was meant to protect cattle as they were feeding. Great shots!

    1. Are there barns where you live in Norway? It would be fun to see one.

  7. This is a great barn and so different with the overhang all around it. It does look lonesome, though!

  8. I love that roof design. It seems to be a bit of natural air-conditioning!

    1. You're right, Kathy. Pretty cool in the winter, too, I would imagine.

  9. Interesting look with the built in air conditioning for hot summer months. Wouldn't want to be in it for the winter! Nice shot.

  12. Yes ma'am, quite a bit of character, indeed... charm, too! She's a beauty! I sure wish some horses or something was filling that corral... surely the barn can be saved!
