19th Century Farmhouse

By KingArthur
Driving through some marvellous remote country lanes, I couldn't help stopping by this rustic 19th century farmhouse on the outskirts of Tal-Virtu territory.

Visibly weather-beaten though still in use, this historic farm building remains one of the very few surviving structures of its kind in these parts. It gives us roots to our rural ancestors who reared both family and cattle together in such farm buildings ..... how time changes man and his ways!

I hope you find the shot to your liking, viewing larger should look better.

Lots of detail, could count every brick, well composed and a lovely sky as a bonus, well seen and taken.

Lovely composition, interesting to know the building is still being used, looks terrific against the beautiful deep blue sky, excellent detail.

Hopefully you have some sort of conservation policy that will ensure it's continued existence.
