Photographer's Note

This is a more modern part of the barn complex on the Robertson farm. The cement foundations prove that it was built somewhat more recently than 1867 (as my previous barn was), but it too has been supplanted by a far more recent steel structure.
Thanks to Tom O’Donnell (gunbud), we know why barns are traditionally painted red. In this case, there is another reason: the colour was an important part of the business profile. Until recently, this farm was a popular "U-Pick" strawberry farm, where people could come to pick their own strawberries and then purchase their harvest by weight. The red paint was regularly refreshed, though it did wear out after seasons of exposure, as you can see by the lower reaches of the doors.

Tech: shot in RAW, minimal cropping to straighten horizon, resized and sharpened for TE (sharpening reduced to 25%)

Thanks for looking and for your critiques and suggestions

Have a berry happy day.
