Old barn door

(Best viewed large)
Dentdale, like most of the other Yorkshire Dales, has plenty of old stone barns up on the hills as well as down in the valley. This one had a nice weathered door, with a lovely selection of ferns growing between the stones.

  3. It couldn't have been more perfect if you had tried. That touch of old colour on the door itself just makes the shot.
