To me, what makes this shot are the shapes of the two openings in the barn and the little hill to the right of it. The large expanse of sky forces the viewer to hunt for the significant details.

Why thank you very much. The small hill you refer to is called a drumlin which is a glacial formation formed after the last ice age where the advancing ice pushed debris, usually sand and gravel, forward. Drumlins are interesting in that the rough edge always points north, the direction the ice moved forward.
