Pulled over on Highway 16 West to snap this capture of Sunnyside Farm RT Nasich. It was such a lovely view of this Old Barn sitting there on the prairie with a classic windmill at it’s side. There are many like this scattered across the prairies. Couldn’t resist. Taken in Saskatchewan off Highway 16 West, Canada April 2,2010

I am an amateur photographer from Sherwood Park, Alberta Canada.
Love scenery, wildlife and anything that catches my eye as being unique. Have a Canon Rebel XSI with a 100mm – 400mm Lens that allows me to get some wonderful captures!

  • Sis, thank you. This is almost right on the highway and catches the eye because of the windmill. :>)) Leslie

    Very nice. Yes, that windmill would definitely be an eye catcher. The barn looks like it could still be functional.

  • Thanks Barb. There was a debate about whether it is being used or not in our vehicle but the power lines seem to end before the barn. Not Sure. :>)) Leslie
