A road in Illinois..

We went for a little drive today. We have had two or three people mention a barn near West Union, Illinois. One day a few months ago, we drove around down there looking for it...almost exclusively on the east side of Route 1. Well, today we took a road going west, and just rambled around. Almost all the way down to Robinson.

I never did see any barn that was special...yet I don't even know what I am looking for. Just from the way it is mentioned to me, I would instantly recognize it as what they are talking about.

Either way, we were not out at a good many of my photos were NOT GOOD. I have not taken the time to see what I could do in photoshop. I am not getting my hopes up. But I sure would like to go back down that way on a better day, preferably one of those crisp, clear fall days....or one after a rain. Either early in the day or late in the evening.

Someone mentioned fall at a blog I was visiting...saying that even though they liked fall, they weren't ready for it. I am always ready for is my favorite season. Don't get me wrong, I am always so glad to see spring, and I love somethings about summer...and I love to get out in the snow with camera in hand....but oh, I would love it if fall always lasted a little bit longer...with warm days right up into November. And the leaves aglow with color.

And windswept skies...and hearing the crickets start...and apples getting ripe...seeing the farmers out in the fields. Hearing the corn rustle if the wind blows...that is just a wonderful sound.

I will leave with the following video...even if the music sounds too--oh, I don't know the word...listen to the words. I am pretty sure it is where I got the term windswept sky; I know I have heard it used other places but this song almost always comes to mind when I use the listen and see what you think.
