Heavy snow was quickly covering this very old barn. No worries about that, the craftsmen who build this great building knew exactly what they were doing. The structure is as solid as a rock, despite its advanced age. Many coats of paint have long since faded away, leaving a beautiful “patina” that gives the barn that very special character. This “comfortable as an old shoe” look cannot be duplicated without the passing of many decades of time and weather.
This great old family farm is located on RT-442, just east of Clarkstown, PA in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, USA.
This photo was taken with a Canon EOS 10D body fitted with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Zoom lens, at the 24mm focal length. The shutter speed was 1/500th sec at f/4. The camera’s ISO was set to 100. A Manfrotto, tripod was used with a remote shutter release cable.
