Default Double Springs Road

Was out cycling out to a nearby school last week to share some nature education programs, and noticed a few of the old barns and sheds in the Double Springs area.

The hill behind this one is mostly Sage Grass - often called "poverty grass" because it grows best on poor soils. A farm full of poverty grass is tending towards poverty for the farmer...

These old oaks made a nice frame for a small barn right beside the road. And also will make some shade for the "critters" nearby...

I pass this fine little Church very often, but never before took time to notice how nicely the Oak frames it...

I don't always remember to bring the camera along while cycling, but was glad to have it this time. Hope you enjoyed these rural East Tennessee scenes, and will share your comments & critique!

As always a nice series, I agree I like the framing of the little Church.

I also like the framing of the church. In fact, that one is my favorite of this entire very fine series.

Hans - Thanks so much! I pass that Church on my bicycle all the time, just never stopped to notice... Makes me wonder how many other scenes I miss each day.

MtnMan - Glad you liked these! The Church shot was also an experiment with some free software called Enfuse - not quite HDR, but something like it...

Pboerger - Thanks - glad you enjoyed it!

Kevin - and glad you enjoyed it too!

The church is my favorite too. But the ones of the barns/farms really make me feel at home. It's amazing how much detail there is too in such a broad view.

That last one is so neat. Is that milkweed seeds or am I completely wrong?
