Well we have arrived. My first trip to the mountains since i was a small boy. The air is cool, the trees are ablaze and my butt is sore from driving. (haha) Glad to have made it and setting into a cozy cabin in the woods in a small community called Whitter (just south of Cherokee). Couldn't resist getting unpacked and out to shoot a bit before it got dark. The back roads here were scattered with both small farms and large ranches all nestled into the hill sides. Here are a few of what I was able to capture.
Several of the farms had horses and they would graze right up to the edge of the road. Great sunset light to work with.
One large field still had a corn looking plant, maybe millet? Standing tall!
The horses and stables (below) is my favorite. They seemed so eager to work with me. Almost as if they had been photographed before. Gave the image a touch of the past with a cyan tone and a bit of grain.
Has started out to be a great trip and have only been here 2 1/2 hours. Looking forward to tomorrow. (Comments are always welcome!).
