In the Morning Sun
Several posts ago, I devoted some time to sharing a drive we did on the Johnson Mesa when the clouds were so low, we were driving thru them. Well, the drive this day was in the bright sunshine!
There’s something about the circling birds near the deserted homestead that makes the scene feel forlorn, even in the bright sunshine!
On this day, we explored some of the dirt roads that lead to various homesteads or ranch pastures. For this image, I got out of our Jeep so that I could capture the lines of both the dirt road and barbed wire fenceline as they both wind off into the horizon.
On one of the dirt roads, we passed a very small graveyard in a meadow. It was fenced it, and there didn’t seem to be many graves in there. Well, actually, a more accurate statement would be there weren’t many visible headstones in it. As you can see, it was very overgrown. It was the gate with the cross on it that drew our attention.
Old Barn Window
On our way back from our morning adventure, we passed an old barn half falling down. I just love the look of the weathered rough wood and the reflection of the ground in the window glass. I’m actually sort of amazed that the glass was still in it, unbroken!
