So my barn decided to fall down last week......

OK, so while it was at work and the Mrs was out (thank god) even though it was a nice sunny day with no wind, my barn decided to fall down which was handy, the end result being this....



So I decided to make light of currently having the largest rockery in Cumbria and created these, I hope you like them........





And finally some star trails



All of these are straight from the camera with only adjustments to white balance, saturation etc (and some minor cropping) when converting from RAW, the only exception is the star trail which is a stack of 7 images and otherwise un-edited, all comments and criticism is welcome as always

Glad someone likes them other than me and I think I have sussed the focusing in the dark nightmare I was having.

The barn will be put back together in good time, nobody was hurt so all is well

Inspiring images Mark, that unfortunate gaping hole is ideal for the imagery you created so well.

Sorry about the wall.

wow fantastic set of photographs, really like number 2. Was it made with a sparkler? Shame about your barn though are you insured?

Thanks its done using wire wool (a great way to set yourself and the surroundings on fire if you don't think about what your doing)

Insurance won't accept "it was old" (its been standing for several hundred years with no foundations) as a reason for it falling down, so yes it is but may as well not be
