Ottawa Valley Barn in the Fall

I have been wanting to share this image ever since I took it, last fall.  I had recently been working on my G+ mentorship for Visionary Landscapes, mentored by +Sairam Sundaresan, part of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. I was looking for an image that would be special, as a memory of my mentorship and of my trip back to Ontario, very near where I used to live, just before I left Canada to live in Europe, when I was young.

When I saw this scene, I was intrigued by the beautiful round roofed pigeon loft (I think?) side of this old barn. It just stood out next to the lovely autumn foliage. I went back more than once during my brief stay there to try to get the photograph just as I wanted it, but it was overcast or actually pouring with rain. This particular time the elements were there and I got what I wanted. I hope it brings back memories of lovely autumn days and that you like it.

This will also serve to remind everyone that tomorrow is Farm Friday, so you can get your farming related images ready to share. +Farm Friday  #farmfriday  curated by myself and +Steven Kennard
