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.

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!!
