A typical barn in the Palouse region is about to weather another storm.  A heavy layer of rain-laden clouds hovers menacingly above the building that’s already endured decades of harsh weather.  The climate that gives these structures their beautiful weathered and sun-bleached patina is also the very thing which eventually causes their destruction.

I especially like the look of the green mosses and lichens that cover the roof of the barn, which echoes the green of the fields and hillsides among which the barn sits.  I also realize that they are contributing to the decomposition of the roof shingles.

Enjoy it while it lasts!



  1. its beautiful! i love how the thick, heavy clouds gathering together and the barn at the wide, open field gives a rustic look, simply gorgeous 🙂

    • Thanks OD. During my almost entirely rainy week in the Palouse, the clouds were a nondescript blanket of white most of the time, and were best left out of my images. You wouldn’t believe how happy I was to see this extra-dark cloud layer that stood out from the rest. I only had a few minutes to shoot before it started dumping again….
