Behind the bales

This abandoned farmhouse was closely surrounded by tilled fields. It looks like whoever took over the land ignored the house, but farmed all the available land.

Beautiful composition . It may be the owners who continue to harvest their fields or the buyer of the land who does not use the house...

I can imagine hanging out on that porch. Nicely captured using the bales and trees to frame it

It’s still a great looking old place even if it’s abandoned.

Nicely-framed view that tells the story of the land and its use! A house that had curb appeal back in the day.

Fantastic rural setting that is just full of that special country atmosphere, that kind of artistic "untidiness", if there is such a word.
