Barnwood Browns by lyndemc

Barnwood Browns

Going for something completely different in my Beauty in Browns theme for November, I present the rafters of a corn crib. I was amazed at how this little building has withstood the test of time thus far; its wood looked pristine in the morning sunlight. The center area is where a tractor and wagon could be parked, a tractor of long ago of course, not the monsters that roam the fields now a days. They're bigger than this building! The outer sections of this crib are long narrow spaces where cobs of corn were stored, the slates in the wood (lower right corner) allowing air to pass through and keep it dry, even after rain or snow. This method of storage is rarely used any more these days which is why I was free to admire this retired barn.
Stunning! Big fav.

Gorgeous light! This wood looks so vibrant. Our sheds are barns looked very tired and worn compared to this.

I looked in vain for a strategically placed flower somewhere amongst all that timber but alas Denise, it was not there. I don't know . . .
Lovey shot and yes that timber looks to be in pristine condition.

@terryliv There is a bird's nest on the plank farthest to the right, up against a rafter. I didn't notice it until the image was uploaded on the computer. Since it was Tuesday when you looked at the picture, you were perhaps expecting my traditional flower that often comes with rusty images. (I had only weeds for this week's rusty image.) What I wish had been in this photo was a delicate scarf hanging over the board that's broken off, fluttering in the wind, leaving the mind to wonder what happened. :)
