Barns of Benton County: Blue Roof
You know I do these barn pictures as I drive by, right? Usually I'm the driver and photographer and I may or may not have 3 small boys with me.
Now before you go accusing me of child endangerment, remember these are quiet country gravel roads and we might pass one or two cars at the very most. Which you can see coming for a good mile or two. And when I have my camera hanging out the window I'm driving about... 10 mph?
On this particular drive, I happened to be by myself. It was in April when the grass was green but the trees weren't yet. And I got sprinkled on a few times!
One thing I do love about Iowa is the big sky. Well, I hate that too, because you can see the big, scary storms coming for hours! But when the weather isn't threatening, the skies are a treat!
If you were wondering, I didn't drive by this farm in reverse. I put the pictures in reverse order because the close-up of the barn (first picture) turned out to be a really good shot! I was surprised by the blue roof! Were you?
Thanks for visiting the farm with me!
