Cooke Ranch

My Monochrome Monday picture today is an old one I took a few years back of the Cooke Ranch in Brightwood, OR. The ranch is off the beaten path. You drive down a back road through the woods, and all of a sudden the trees part, and grassy meadows are on both sides of the road. This old barn is one of a few clustered around the main house. I liked how the horses were so interested in what I was doing, and Mt Hood is peeking at me from over the hills in the distance.

What a great monoview!
I would like to visit on a place like that.

Even in black and white the snow on that mountain looks wonderfully cool. Fantastic!

Great country scene that works in black and white.

I like the composition, just catching a part of the building with the focus being on the horses and then the snowy mountain top in the background.

A memorable scene.

Perfect shot. I love old farm or ranch pictures and in mono it looks real old timey. MB
