Drive-by Barns


These are some barns I passed during my recent travels through Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina. I saw A LOT of barns I wanted to photograph, but couldn't for one reason or another, usually due to terrain or something else in the way.










And I thought this little barn scene looked nice as an oil painting.

What a wonderful collection of barns! I love the quilt barns - I am hoping to be able to travel again and find some of them! The oil painting effect is really nice, and I love that 5th one, with the critters in the background!

Glad to see you! Wonderful barns you managed to pick up. I really love that fourth one down. The hilly terrain is so interesting.

Nice one.

That's the best barn collection I've seen in a while. Great finds! Believe it or not, I didn't get a single barn on my trip. Didn't seem to be what I was focusing on.

Andee said...

Wonderful set of barns. My favorite is the 5th one down.

I love those quilt barns!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Oh wow...look at all these beautiful barns! Wonderful finds. I'm partial to the quilt barns, so I choose the red barn with the quilt block as my favorite! Great shots!

Wonderful set of barns Brian- I think I like all of them equally. What gorgeous scenery you drove through!

Betty Roan said...

You certainly found some great barns. I've never seen a quilt barn before, except on Barn Charm. Cool. My favorite is the barn up on the hill (4th down).

Those are really neat barns. I love going to Tennessee because there are so many wonderful things to see. Love the ones 'clinging' to the side of a hill.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Ok, 1st of all, there's so many cool barns - 2nd that 5th one is definitely my fave, sooo huge & oh so cool, no, Awesome! I'd love to get inside there & explore!!! =)

I love that huge barn with the cows behind it. The quilts are always so interesting!

Rose said...

I love each and every one of these...they are wonderful. The quilt block on the first one is called Flying Swallows. I can't see the other one good enough to guess even. Due to the colors they used more than anything.

I too love the barns of Kentucky. I am so impressed with the quilt blocks on them. Thank you for swinging by the cabin.

Gillian Olson said...

Not only are the barns great but the settings are so beautiful.

Beth said...

What a terrific variety of wonderful barns you've showed us! Wow--such a difference and some like no other I've ever seen!
Love them all--can't really pick a favorite. Great post--thanks for sharing with us all. :>)
