Hello, I decided to post a different view of the old barn and Mt. Shasta. This photo does not have the long shadows as the other one does. The clouds were amazing that day. This is a rural area with pasture land and cows. To the right of the barn was a bridge over a small creek. Mt. Shasta pulls in certain clouds especially lenticular clouds which were amazing to watch go across the sky.
There are several lakes in the area and the Cascade Mountains.
Very beautiful area to visit.

Hello Karen, I see that this area is beautiful and well worth visiting. Beautiful old abandoned barn and splendid view of impressive Mount Shasta. Strange, that the photo was made in mid of Jube but it looks like rather autumn with these warm colours. amazing lenticular clouds. superb picture.

I remember critiquing Mount Shasta previously but, as you say, from a different angle. This shot has lost none of the charm of the previous shot! You have a lovely composition, with the focal barn and trees strongly placed and at such an angle that they lead very naturally to the mountain.
The colours and the dof are fine.
Have a lovely day,

This is a really beautiful shot! I like the composition a lot, I guess I wouldn't miss this hut myself if I were there - it's really eye catching, framed by the trees. The sky is perfect and I like the mountain in background. Colours are great!

Beautiful composition with the old barn in the FG and beautiful silhouette of Mt. Shasta in the BG. I like the light and beautiful colors with orange tones

There are so many great elements here, even the shadows work extremely well in the composition. I really enjoy the serenity in this scene, I can almost hear the quiet :) Excellent image!

A well-thought out composition and such pretty, charming scenery. The barn has been captured beautifully, with superb strong colours, golden light and great textures. The picturesque mountain in the BG is the icing on the cake.
Well done, thanks for sharing

Frankly speaking, I don't like the autumn,' cause it reminds me an old age, as the end of life. But the colors are great! Excellent composition with the mountain on the background. Very nice combination of the blue sky and the yellow grass, well seen!
Best wishes from Russia!

Dynamic bygone era scene, the weathering decaying abandoned barn fronting the majestic Shasta, in golden lighting.
The land in far northern California is flat and dominated by Cascade volcanoes. With the Sacramento River flowing through its heart.
My home area of the Sierra Nevadas is gone which serves as a huge barrier between east and west.
Thanks for sharing,

it is really a beautiful area and this is a very nice picture of this area. I like the mysterious atmosphere of old abandoned houses and I like special landscapes. In this picture you show both.
Very nice. Great colors, an amazing sky. A wonderful place.
Best wishes from Sweden

A fascinating landscape, so clear & deep! I like the warm colours in the FG...the yellowish grass and the blue Cascade mountains in the far BG. The air must be fresh and cool & I can almost feel it in your picture. Excellent work!
