Another Barny Afternoon

 Above was taken at dawn, the light was on and shows red.

Below was also taken at dawn.  As usual, I upped the saturation and contrast.
As usual, it was a matter of poaching these barns.  No getting out to walk in and see them.

Those are hops behind.  Hops are used in beer, of course!  And they are a big business around here.  You can smell the hops in the evening and  morning as they harvest during this time of year.  Some like it (me) and some don't because of allergies (Cora)!

I hope you all have a good evening! Hop on over to Bluff Area Daily and have a look at all the barns!

Both shots are wonderful as are your edits!
I'm looking at the second image with the flowers and the trampoline and wondering if it's been turned into a home. Pretty cool.

Neat shots, Jim. They look like HDR. I would love an HDR program for Christmas!

What awesome editing, Jimh, & I love the shape... I can't say that I've ever smelled hops during harvest =0
