Who could resist this charmer. On Saskatchewan Highway #16 East going towards Regina I caught sight of the remains of this old barn and windmill gracing the flat prairie. True to the many old farms and homesteads of the earlier era where the dependency for water made a windmill to water stock a must, this would have been a busy and productive barn at one time.

    very appealing. What did you do in post-processing?

  • Thanks very much. I actually didn’t do too much. A tiny bit of sharpening, curves a touch of texture that’s about it. :>)) Leslie
