How many times have I photographed this old Dutch barn, circa 1870? Not enough, it seems. Walking the dykes this morning it shows yet another side of its inimitable character. This rural landmark has become a deep part of my visual life. Always present and assuring, it will surely outlast me. Standing on the river's edge as the morning light amplifies the poplars, barn and hillside, I keep wondering about other walkers on this path who had surely witnessed the same iconic beauty and simply stopped and gazed.
