Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

Angular forms of barns — new, lived-in, old, abandoned — stand in stark contrast to the curving landscape of The Palouse, America’s largest expanse of grain fields in eastern Washington and western Idaho.  And if it weren’t for minimal shoulders along the winding highway, we’d have even more pictures in our collection:  It’s a photographer’s dreamland!

    Amazing barns, all very angular, the top one looks as though it was made from cardboard and as though a good puff of wind would blow the barn down…

    Beautiful shots of iconic rural architecture. Love the grain elevators against the skyline.

    • Thanks so much! We loved the grain elevator, too. It’s not scenery we see in East Tennessee or at least not where I’ve been. But we loved seeing it in Idaho and eastern Washington. Thanks for taking a look!

    Love this collection. The first one is a great capture, and the last one is just beautiful!!

  7. Bicycling across the West, I often used these giant barns, and grain elevators as landmarks and goals, cycling from one to the next and whiling away the hours across an endless landscape. –Curt
