Sometimes life hands you great big adventures. Sometimes on those adventures you stumble across pretty red barns.
These beauties beckon and thrill all my senses. I dip in and taste the experience through the lens of my camera.
The funny thing is, there is most likely a look and don’t touch rule.
The snowy peaks might be too far away….
Same thing with the barn in sight. It is probably tucked away on a strangers property.
Land that I have no access to. Trespassing is certainly not an event I need in my life.
Sometimes I am in too much of a hurry to get somewhere to make a quickie barn pit stop.
In this case I had but a few minutes. Time to grab a few clicks.
Time to smile a bit at the beauty before me. And…..be at the ready for someone to come out and yell at me to get away from their barn (that did happen once and it need not happen again.) Nothin’ like being in the moment, at peace with self & someone comes running out to scare your socks off.
This red barn caught my gaze just outside Montrose, CO. I pulled over on the side of the public road alongside it and was sure to look from a distance and not touch.
That is the real nice thing about zoom lenses.
You can keep a healthy distance and get a few clicks.
I don’t know what Lot 1 is, but it sounds pretty important.
Perhaps I can buy the land. That way I could have the red barn as my neighbor. That would be pretty neat. Eh?
I sure am happy that I made acquaintance with this red barn and all the beauty surrounding it.
It is small experiences like these that I will never forget. Peace, beauty and JOY all at once. I am grateful I could share this with all of you….
