Beautiful Barns

If I were a poet I would write a little sonnet about this barn. I drive by it frequently as it is on my preferred route home from any points south. It is visible from a distance of almost 4km (that's about 2.25 miles for my US friends) because of its location on a hill and its very steep and very red Gambrel roof. Though not obvious in this photo, this barn is also perched on the side of a rather steep hill. Right around the moment it becomes visible from its perch in the distance, I train my eyes on this barn as though it were a beacon, put my car in neutral, and I coast home. Imagine what I save on gas.
