Barn on White Rock Road ~ Rockbridge County, VA

Old Barn on a Rainy Day 

“Let the rain kiss you. 
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. 
Let the rain sing you a lullaby."
~Langston Hughes

This is a working farm with other outbuildings, and it is in our neck of the woods. It could use a couple of coats of paint on the roof and sides, but the old rustic wood still looks wonderful to me. The white spots are rain droplets as it was a dark, rainy day.

Tom, over at the Barn Collective, sponsors a meme devoted to the beauty of barns new and old. If you would like to see more of them here is the link:

Dragonstar also has a meme for black and white photos. If you would like to see more of these here is the link:

  1. I like your header photo better - warm and sun-shiny.

  2. Those old barns show some great texture. That farm is still working? Doesn't look active.

  6. So nice. I love the necks of the world living in one myself. :-)

  7. It is a beautiful barn. The roof looks in good shape. I also prefer the patina of aged wood on the siding.

  8. That is SO beautiful. I do like the color one better, but it's fun to see the B&W too. I'm kinda glad that God didn't give us a B&W world to live in. LOL Hope you have a wonderful Christmas! xo

  9. That is a wonderful photograph.

  10. Thanks Genie for sharing this Virginia barn this week. Yesterday I drove in search of snow and took lots of barn photos in a snow storm...they look spatter painted. Merry Christmas and please return again soon.

  11. Nice barn. I like the black and white for it's mood here.
