Very nice, I like the first one, looking thru the tree, and I like the tree shot on it's own.

Another great series, mole, one that reminds me how similar your area is to the one in which I live--your mountains are just taller. (Of course the earliest record of my family IS in your mountains...around 1780, near Maryville) These old school houses used to be all over our area--my grandmother used to teach in one in the 1920's--but I don't know of a single one still around that is in as good of condition as the one you've photographed.

My favorite shot of the series is the first one. I like the way you've used the overhanging branch to put a dark frame around the rich colors of the main part of the photo. The sky color is really terrific. Next on my list is the red barn, simply because of the richness of the colors.

Thanks for the look into a part of the heritage of life in the mountains.


Addendum: I am definitely going to have to find my way to your area. My niece lives in Johnson City and my son is headed for Pigeon Forge next weekend....definitely makes me want to get back to the region.

Nice series. Love the Tree framing on the first shot.

I can just envision the Coon hunters sitting on the front porch for their annual club photo.

Rodney - Thanks for the helpful comments - glad you liked them too!

Paul - Thanks for the input, as well as the shared memories... Sure hope to meet you if you are ever up this way! (We are not at all far from Johnson City)

Lou - That tree sure does make a photogenic frame! I understand that this is one of the more active coon hunters clubs in the region.
