6/18/06 - Abandoned Barn

At the mid-point of a 2 week nature photography Elderhostel. We get the weekend off. I decided to work on abandoned barns and other farm buildings that are in abundance here in Sleeping Bear Dunes Park. I can photograph flowers at home; after driving nearly 850 miles I need to take advantage of things unique to the park.
The yellow dandilion-like flower is a goat's beard; the bluish ones are vetch. When the goat's beard goes to seed, the result puts a dandilion to shame -

Beautiful composition! Love the tones.

Beautiful shot. Surely that barn isn't really abandoned! It looks to be in perfect condition. I agree about the
goat's beard. It has a great seed head on it.
