I heard about all that rain there and was wondering if you guys were gonna break the record set in 1953 for the most cosecutive days of rainfall - glad to know you won't. But wow, if this is what you got out of it maybe you should hope for more. This is simply stunning. The light, colour and composition all come together to make this a real winner in my eyes! Beautifully done Barbara!!

Well it's gorgeous, even if it is somewhat inconvenient. Could you send some of that rain to Oklahoma?

Saw this as your entry in Jan "Counting Down"--figured I'd better add my comment to the gallery original! This is a fantastic shot, and while I hope the endless rain did in fact end for you, what a beautiful side effect! The coloring on this is gorgeous!

I have a passion for barns, Barbara ... and this one is absolutely beautiful ... what makes it even more striking that its own color is the reflective color found in the flood water ...
