Grey County Barn

This is a typical Grey-Bruce barn. They are getting a bit rare in the countryside. Once they're down they aren't replaced. Someone told me there is no foundation. They were just built at ground level. The cattle's heat kept the barn from freezing preventing the foundation from shifting or heaving. Once they became vacant ... well you guessed it  ... they came tumbling down.

  1. I like the blankness in the foreground and all the colour at the top. Yes the barns are slowly, decreasing.
