On a weekend vacation in Wisconsin, we stumbled upon this round barn in Grafton. We struggled with how to capture its beauty on the rainy early spring day, but settled on this panoramic look that placed its in its environment, nestled in some pine trees set back a bit from a rural two lane highway. Round barns had their day in this country as experimental buildings promoted because, at the time, they were thought to provide more efficient use of space. They are usually found near agricultural colleges where academics  promoted their use. See more of our work on Facebook at Ernest J. Schweit Photography
