the country road


You can tell I'm still using up my supply of April shots.  This one was taken before the trees in the background sprouted leaves (assuming they're not dead which might be the case with the big one). I was fortunate to have the farmer happen by just as I was setting up the shot.  There wasn't really a lot of green (or "good" green), so I again opted for the B&W.

  1. I love this shot. It gives such a perfect idea of what the farmland here looks like and is beautifully composed.

    1. It does give it a kind of an old and classic look I think.

  3. Did you offer the farmer a big 'merci beaucoup' for so obligingly appearing at the right moment Stuart :) Looks fab in b&w.

    1. In fact, I tipped my helmet (bike helmet, that is) when he actually moved over to pass by me. Little did he know I would then "shoot" him in the back.

  5. Great shot, Stuart! It reminds my of my Uncles farm outside of Nolensville.

    1. Thanks. The farms in France and the farms in Tennessee probably have a lot in common.

  6. Love it! And now I'm singing again, this time 'country road, take me home, to the place, I belong...' That would be John Denver for me...

  7. Yes, once the green has arrived, you don't really want to be posting - or seeing - those non green trees. That's my opinion anyway.
