Default Sunny Roadsides

A few more sunny, almost springtime images from here in East Tennessee. It's a great time to be out cycling on the backroads, and to capture a few random snapshots.

And some closer views of the old cat-tail heads, still shedding their innumerable tiny seeds to the late-season winds.

Here's another typical almost-spring roadside scene. Our region is gradually becoming less rural, and more suburban. Old farm structures are not so well-maintained as they once were...

The complex weather patterns of this rapidly changing season make for some fascinating skies - best views along some old country road...

Nice to see spring is arriving down there. We should follow by about a month. Love the old barn shot.

For me I like the barn and the fog shots best

Lou - Wish I could mail you a bit of springtime, but it surely will get there soon...

Hans - Thanks! Glad you liked them.

Wonderful photos Mole. I am especially fond of the deteriorating barn. We are also losing many old barns and other rural structures, and many old farms are growing houses rather than crops.
