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. 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.
