Creepy old silo and barn

I saw a photo that @sarasdadandmom uploaded the other day of an abandoned silo and barn and it reminded me that I've been meaning to get a shot of this one for some time. The old silo has obviously had a big vine of some sort growing on it in the past. Those roots spreading all over it are completely dead but have acquired a kind of sculptured look that's a bit creepy (pun not originally intended).
View large for best effect.
I love the colour and textures in this photo, it certainly is a bit creepy in both senses of the word!

Very cool shot the woody textures and patchwork Tim work really well together and the dead vines look like some kind of hand print

I love this shot, what a building for a horror movie. My daughter would swear there were ghost in there. Nice find Robin.

Definitely eerie, but great barn and silo. The ominous sky fits in perfectly here.

Well at least the roof seems to have been maintained somewhat, and the sculptured root does give the square silo a lot of character, a very nice and interesting find!!!

It does look a bit ominous. It's a fine old place though.

I love the colors! Beautifully captured, Robin!

Yes you're quite right Robin - viewed best large. Those vines look like gnarly old fingers, clutching and creeping up the side of the silo. Fabulously creepy and clever shot.

Whether intended or not great pun. It is creepy & the sky adds to it.

Nice capture! This old building has a lot of character, if it could only talk, the tales it could tell about the history and things it has seen.

It is creepy! We have some in this area that look like that but are still in use.
