Beautiful Ken! I love the tree in the foreground and the lovely fence leading up to the barn. Looks like someone is living in there ~ and why not! #284057

Thanks, everyone! Landscapes are my favorite category (and my archilles heel!), but I've only taken about 10-12 so far, so hopefully they'll improve! The Landscapes Category here at BP, especially the winners, takes my breath away! #1640691

WOW! This is an awesome shot, Ken! Great crisp clarity! #1641982

This is beautiful, Ken. Nice color and leading line! #1642034

Ken Grooms July 26, 2005

Thanks, Tammy and Susan! This was the first time I went hunting for a landscape shot, and I was impatient - I couldn't wait for the wind to die down, so the leaves are a little blurry. #1642834

Lori Carlson July 28, 2005

Ken, I really like old barns (as my gallery will attest to). I've never seen one with shake shingles on it like this. Must have been a wealthy farmer to have something like this.
Nice framing between the tree and sky, with the fence leading the eye to the barn.
Nice work. #1729306
