Barns

Barns have always been a key to both livestock and family.
Coddington Barn 1905 is a well restored big red barn located in Glennwood, IA. It has a very nice stone foundation and a nice coat of red paint. And where there is a barn there is always a windmill nearby.

It is little used today but years ago winter barn and windmill was the center of the farm activity. As time moves on much different outbuildings are needed today. I did enjoy my time in my Dad's barn.

Driving down an ordinary country road I spotted this old red barn with a row of sun flowers growing in front of the barn. Just a great farm scene.

Growth season is underway. After the planting you need the rain and on this day there was a gentle rain off and on during the day.

I would have seen this old boy on the road many times in my youth. A little bit of work and this guy will crank right up. Not sure if he could pull the loads that are produced today but it would give it a good effort.

The equipment I was use to is a lot different from what is needed today to farm. I have to believe it is much more comfortable spending the day in a cab than in my day of open air tractors. One has to wonder what another 20 years of technology will bring to the farmer and his equipment.

Out driving in the country at this time of year and it becomes very obvious that planting time is upon us. Soon these tractors will be running day and night in order to get the crop in the ground with enough time for it to mature before winter sets in again. But the spring weather has no regards for the farmer and so they never know how much time they will have for their work.

It is always great to get outside after a snow to see what was painted over night. With a bright sun everything is intense. The whites are whiter, the browns are browner and all the animals are more vibrant.

You wake up and you can tell that it is cold outside. You bundle up nice and warm and set off to get the morning chores completed so you can get back to a nice warm house. Once you get outside you are stopped in your tracks as you glance around at all the decorations Mother Nature has left from the night before. With the cloudless sky, fresh layer of snow and a bright sun, it is almost to bright to see the full range of what is before you. After a few minutes of enjoyment it is time to get on with the chores, but with a lighter step.

Big wet snow flakes falling so one just has to go out so some of his favorite places. It was really coming down hard and lots of limbs between me and this shed made focusing very hard. While shooting this a pickup went by me. After this photo I headed down the road and about a mile later I saw the pickup in the ditch. So the driver and I sat in my truck where it was warm and waited for his buddy to come and pick him up.
