This idyllic barn, nestled in La Honda, California, is one of my favorite scenes on the road to Half Moon Bay and Pigeon Point.

Yellow Barn

While returning to San Jose from Monterey, this rare yellow barn enticed me to maneuver an unplanned stop, where I captured the photo that became the basis for this artsy piece.

Red Barn

I screeched to a halt to capture the sunset bathed front of this classic barn! In the process of finessing the photo, I removed intruding power lines to eliminate distractions while accentuating the fence to frame the scene.

Rural Radiance

On a recent family visit to rural North Carolina, I was struck by the silence of the moment that presented this striking sunset.

Pot Plot

This clay pot and water pitcher vignette capture the nostalgia of my uncle’s Woodside residence.
