Broken Dreams

I have to admit that I did not come up with the name of this. I posted this photo in a group for barn photos on Facebook and another person put this in the comments. I thought it was a great title! I also did not take the photo…a good friend of mine did. I really love this photo as I think it captures everything….the buildings, the sky, the grasses and trees and the little bit of fence. Hope you like it too! This is in the Marshfield, Wisconsin area.

Setting Sun Behind A Cloud

I am very proud of this photo taken in Marshfield, Wisconsin though I did not take the photo.  The photo was taken by a good friend of mine. I am proud of it because on a whim I submitted it to a local weatherman’s Facebook page as he posts viewers photos on the weather portion of the news. A couple of hours after submitting it, he posted it on the 10pm news! In addition, it was posted on the station’s Facebook page where it got more likes than any other photo they have posted!  My thanks to my friend for the use of his photo and once again….congrats on your photo being chosen for the news!

For the Love of Barns

If you live in the Dairy State – Wisconsin, one thing you will see a lot of is barns! I love barns all shapes and sizes. I hope you love these too!

All of the barns were photographed with an iPhone in the Marshfield, Wisconsin area

I call this the optical illusion barn. The photographer assures me the barn is NOT really leaning to one side!

I must admit that this is one of my all time favorites…the color and composition are just gorgeous!

This was on a nice spring day in the surrounding farm land

Although the traditional red barn is my favorite, I love gray with stone foundations as well

Winter Beauty, Part 3 ~ The End!

Yes, I’m late with this post. To be honest, I was tired of looking at snow here and didn’t want to even look at photos of it for the blog here! But, I said I’d be back with the third part so here I am. Next time we meet it will be after the all of the snow has melted and life has returned to the frozen tundra also known as Wisconsin! Enjoy and see you when spring actually makes an appearance here!

This photo sums up why I didn’t want to look at snow photos!!!

This is better! A beautiful photo of a snow covered tree

I can’t deny this stand of snow covered pines is pretty… because it is!

I love this one. Snow but not white wherever you look. I like the view and the fact that some hope of spring is showing

Finally, I leave you with more hope for spring. Such pretty green trees…this time without snow on them at all. I leave you with this view of winter trying hard to turn to spring. Not an easy task when you live in snow country.
I hope you have enjoyed winter in photos and I will see you sometime in the spring! Thanks for looking!!!

Winter Beauty, Part 2

If there is one thing Wisconsin has a lot of…it’s winter! Thankfully beauty comes with it. Enjoy! Part 3 will be coming soon.

It’s snowing…again!

While this may not be most people’s idea of beauty, I LOVE barns and we have the world’s largest round barn here!

This is another of my favorites. I think the photographer caught a moment so crisp, clean and peaceful!

Winters Beauty, Part 1

I hate winter. Cold, snow the whole nine yards. However, I have to admit that it is often beautiful to look at…especially in photos from the comfort of a warm home! Anyhow, hope you enjoy and be looking for the next part to this soon!

Winter and Wisconsin go together!
