Remains of a stone barn north of Oyen, Alberta February 10, 2018. You do not see many stone structures in rural Alberta. This is what remains of a stone barn built by a German immigrant to the area. There is nothing else near it. To get up close I flopped on my back and wormed under a barbed wire fence that is just off to the left of this photo. It was about -20C at the time. I really need to quit doing dumb things like this or at least do them in the summer.
I happen to like lone trees on the prairie so I had to get the tree by itself.
Some of the rocks used in this are pretty big. This definitely took a lot of work. This is just off a dead end road. If I was not shown where this was I would never have found it.
Trying to get artistic with this photo.
I would have liked to see what it looked like years ago. Something like this is rare.
That barn was a lot of work...ReplyDelete
It looks like some of the stones in that one corner may have been salvaged for another project, unless there are are more stones lying there than it appears.ReplyDelete
That is possible. I would like to revisit this spot in summer.Delete
Your "artistic shot" is very nice indeed! The best one!ReplyDelete
Please go back in summer and find more info. What a cool place.ReplyDelete
The artistic shot is great!
You definitely should NOT stop doing such things. Not only do we, your readers, get to enjoy great photography, you feed your inner wild animal. Never stop " flopping on my back and worming under a barbed wire fence" if you want to. Do it.ReplyDelete
I was with Jenn author of westofthefifthmeridian.blogspot.com at the time. I think I caught her by surprise when I wriggled under the fence. She quickly followed suit. She may be smarter than me, she found a better place to crawl under the fence.Delete
LOL I was more surprised at the way you got under the barbed wire..and yes I found a better spot. What would teach us both is finding a gate a few feet further.Delete
Great photos, well worth wriggling under a fence for.ReplyDelete
Great pics... I have a soft spot for stone buildings as my Italian Grandfather and Father worked as stone masons. There is an art in making a wall from stone.ReplyDelete
