Beware, Abandoned Barns

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Beware, Abandoned Barns
Beware, Abandoned Barns

This old barn is near the Rockford Airport. I thought it was abandoned - until a dog came charging from the house in back! Made to the car but he chased us down the road and halfway up the highway.

A tornado watch was posted. We get a lot of threatening weather here in Illinois, but I have never seen a sky like this before. The light was eerie and the clouds very strangely shaped...

Haven't had a lot of chance to comment, hope to catch up later in the afternoon.

Wow, 12 people have already marked this as a fave--big congratulations on your win, Nadya! It's most well-deserved, this is a gorgeous image. Love the story about fleeing from the dog--I'm amazed you captured such a great image in spite of him, LOL. I also wanted to tell you--I grew up in Kansas and we always used to say, "it's tornado weather because the air is green." You captured it, BEAUTIFULLY!!

Congratulations on your Winner!! WOW, what a stunning image!! A fave here too.

BTW, I know what it's like being chased by a dog. LOL The one across the road from us chased me yesterday when I went to retrieve our recycle box from their lawn. My heart was in my throat and I ran for dear life! I'm glad you were able to take such a brilliant pic first.

This is terrific! I, too, am rather mesmerized by that strange sky. I love the visual effects you used here. The colors are rich and vibrant.

A wonderful and well deserved win!
