Up on a hill

This is one of those images one finds by driving around on roads that you don’t know where they go. We drove up to Forest City, NC and came back a different route which proved fortuitous.
I actually saw this and drove past, went up the road, turned around and came back. I had to sit for a few minutes because the clouds obscured the light. then they blew away and the light became right. I posted this in color awhile ago but I like it more in sepia. In B&W it’s too cold.
Always play with the image, sometimes the change brings on a timelessness that color can’t produce.Barn and fence Rte 221 South of Rutherfordton, North Carolina 12/31/2012
I looked at this place on Google Earth; the image there was taken in the summer. With the tree leafed out the impact of the skyline is gone, just a routine scene.


About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
