On The Way Home


Part VI – The End
On the way home my friend and I planned on stopping at the picturesque, red barn we had visited earlier in our adventure. We were also hoping to find and photograph a couple of abandoned houses we saw while following our caravan a few days before. This time the barn scene offered diffused light and I worked the view choosing several different vantage points. My two favorites are displayed below. We passed through a canyon area and decided to stop at a place where the autumn colors clinged to a sheer cliff, with pond reflections below. Back on the road we immediately recognized the homely, little green shack we spotted before, sitting all alone in a field beside the mountains. Then, just a short distance down the road we found the other house that caught our attention. For this one we needed our long lenses to avoid trespassing. It was wonderfully weathered! Not wanting our trip to end, we continued to explore a bit without much success before finally heading home, and ending our Awesome Adirondack Adventure.

  1. Denise, I finally figured out why you have inspired me to start looking at old buildings as photographic subjects. You have a way of making these structures look like they belong there. The first and second images would stand on their own as wilderness landscapes but would not work as well without the barn. By the way it was very nice of the last owner to paint it red with a green roof to fit the color scheme of the fall surroundings. – Rich

  2. Looks like your stops were worthwhile. I drove directly home without passing Go. Maybe I should have stopped. 🙂

    As usual, great photos. Thanks for posting.

    Denise these are truly beautiful images and the “cliffs” is my favorite!!

    • Thanks so much Kathleen. The cliff area was pretty cool and close to the highway. I guess it was a notch in the mountains. I’m glad we stopped.

  4. Denise- Always love to look at your blog. You have a terrific eye for composition and color. Very inspiring. I just posted something on my blog. I signed up for one in 2010 and this was the first time I posted.

    Another great set. I love the cloud mist hanging behind the barn, it just adds that little something.

    I loved you last blog about finding a niche …As it turns out we have similar interests. I am enjoying all your photos…. they are so well composed simple and elegant.

  7. Terrific sets of shots; I hope to photograph in the Adirondacks (preferably in the fall) some day.

  8. Beautiful photos! I am very happy to have discovered your site, and will visit again. Greetings from Japan.

  9. ‘Colorful Cliff’ has a perfect blend of Autumn colors against the rock wall. I also particularly enjoyed ‘Red Barn in the Morning.’ That type of picture would make for a perfect desktop background or post card. Awesome job!

    • I was looking at ‘colorful cliffs’ this morning and thought I would print that one. Thank you for taking the time to visit and comment!!!

    Love your eye for rusty items & old wood! Your photos always have a story to tell.

  11. Really enjoying “colorful cliff”. Fascinating balance of colours and structures inbetween the different coloured trees, the bare rock and the water.
