As we were beginning to think we had turned the weather corner into spring, yesterday Mother Nature issued a reminder that, “no indeed, it’s still winter!” When I awoke yesterday morning and looked outside, there was a new coating of very freshly fallen snow, clinging to everything and still coming down. It was quite beautiful! I decided to jump into my clothing and spend the morning shooting while making my way across town to teach a photography class in the afternoon. My first inclination is to go thru the Metroparks looking for snow covered landscapes and when I came the the often photographed Squires Castle I saw it as I had never photographed it before.
It was decked out in winter garb as were its surroundings. I was particularly taken by the snow-covered trees climbing the hill out of the river valley, just behind it!
On my way to the park, just about a half mile from the castle, I turned a corner and saw this red barn, sitting behind a home.
- I understand that this barn was just cleaned up and renovated and a friend of mine shot it not too long ago, surrounded by brush and trees and in a state of dis-repair. It looked like it had been turned into a residence and in fact I took the liberties of removing a few features in order to return it to its barn status. It was snowing hard at the time and this photo looks like it could have come from a Christmas card. I really like the snow highlighted wagon wheels leaning against the foundation! Sometimes it’s just the little things that make a photo memorable!
