    I am swooning over this image! I have never found a red barn… Let alone surrounded in snow! Grrrr…
    I do love this shot… Just enough red in that sea of white!

    What a classic and beautiful theme Chris! Makes me want to paint it – especially the tree with its ghostly reaching “fingers”;)
    But I loved your politic related pictures just as well – absolutely fascinating to see it in real life and not just in movies. Here in Germany there´s no such thing as campanying wildly around for your candidates or party, at least not in that expanse. Mostly they start about 4 weeks before the election and we elect the same guys – oops girl that is;) – over and over again.

      Hi Sarah:
      Your process sounds much more merciful on the voters. We’ve been inundated with e-mails and mail. That said, it is interesting to get out there and see the candidates in person.
      I would have put the tree further in the frame but there would have been an unsightly telephone pole in the view.
      Have a great day.

        Hi Chris – our process might seem to be more merciful (it´s mostly limited to big streetposters if you believe it!) but then most people feel like the politicians don´t really care about them:( So there are pros and cons both ways I guess;) But I´ve to admit I´m totally fascinated how it works in the US.
        Wish you a wonderful weekend! Cheers, Sarah)
        Wish you a wonderful weeken

        Hi Sarah: I get many questions from friends around the globe about our political process. Perhaps there is a happy medium between too much contact and not enough. The candidates who won the other day won based on exploiting people’s feelings that politicians or big business don’t care about them. I shall not rant on…. But I have an adventurous shoot planned for Sunday morning. Take care and have a great weekend.

        Hi Chris – yes, a medium between those processes would be a very great idea indeed! Maybe one day…;)
        Can´t wait to see the results of your adventurous shoot!!! Hope the conditions will be perfect:) Wish you also a wonderful weekend and take care! Cheers, Sarah:)

    My husband is finding it quite difficult to hold a conversation with me in the car at the moment as I ‘rubberneck’ at the glorious wooden buildings in the snow … we have a couple of lovely barns here but none that sit in their landscape quite so exquisitely as this baby … chapeau m’sieur that is a magnificent shot 🙂

      Oh, thank you or merci….It is a lovely setting. The photographer with whom I took lessons often uses this and a nearby shed for portrait shoots. There are some lovely old barns and other wooden buildings in New England. Perhaps your husband should get to choose the music if you’ll be occupied with sightseeing and ‘rubbernecking’. Cheers!
