Wagon wheel fence

What happens when you build a fence out of old wagon wheels and tractor wheels around a barn ? Well it gets "occupied" by a bunch of Artists.

 

That was to be the fate of Dahmen family barn, another one of iconic places to photograph in Palouse.

 

However, it is not that easy to shoot. The amount of clutter and stuff, combined with the fact that the parking lot is right in front of the barn made it very challenging to compose. That's my general complaint about most of the architectural shots :) ...

 

I did manage to grab a few shots that emphasized the wagon wheels, but wanted a frame that portrayed the barn as a main subject, which ofcourse was a bit hard. In the end this is what I came up with. The clouds had begun to break up, revealing the puffy white clouds... We had so missed the blue skies so far in the trip.
