Red Barn in a Spring Snow


One of the interesting things I have found this winter leaving in this area is that snow can be very localized and heavy at times. I went out one morning to meet up with a friend about 20 miles west of Cortland. We had a little dusting of snow at home but as I traveled up and over the hills the snow got deeper quickly. Along the top of one of the ridges, I came across this red barn and had to stop and get some pictures. Just about 2 miles beyond this barn I headed down into a valley. As I headed into the valley, the snow disappeared completely. This is not like going up and over the Rocky Mountains or something. We are only talking about a few hundred feet in elevation but it makes a big difference.

Thanks for stopping by.

It is strange how snow can gather in one place and not so much in another place. Your red barn in the snow is a jackpot photograph. Thanks for sharing it on your blog.

Thank you very much Joyce. I agree it is pretty strange to see.
