Buried

Half-buried fence, rickety truck and dilapidated barn

If the grass and weeds grow much taller, the fence will be hidden but when I took this photo last week the camera and I could still see it  from a dusty country road in Northumberland County.
A longer view

Originally I saw the truck and asked my husband to stop the car...stop the car!  I had to poke through weedy shrubs and grass to take these photos. The angle I wanted to take this from had a tree trunk and dense underbrush in the way, so I settled for this view.

Hi Ms EG TG -- I like old trucks too. That barn may hold all kinds of goodies.

What we do to get the perfect angle. Great shot.

Lowell said...

Terrific photos. Love that old truck, especially. This place reminds me of our daughter's in-laws place. :)

And I'm guessing but probably most all Ocalans own guns. And a goodly percentage are very religious. Guns and Jesus go well together in this part of the Bible Belt. :)

The first photo is real gem.

Kate said...

That place has to seen human involvement for a long time! Great photos that certainly demonstrates that idea.

Jack said...

What a terrific discovery, EG. I occasionally find myself braking hard when an interesting picture opportunity jumps up. Fortunately so far no one has run into me.

Randy said...

Wow, that could be such a nice truck.

colleen said...

Love these. They could have been taken here in Floyd VA.

Nice work. I hope that you didn't get any ticks or chiggers getting the shot.

terrific view....

Miss Kodee said...

LOL! I have done that - but usually in my case I am chasing down a dog ;)

I love the HDR look with these photos!

I love the second shot so much! Boy that grass is high!

llandudnopictures said...

Fantastic, I think that truck has driven its last route!

Buttons said...

Oh I am so excited I LOVE the shots and I LOVE that barn I have photos of it myself. It is awesome. We are getting much closer to meeting my friend and I can tell in only a matter of time two passionate fellow photographers are going to be hugging and taking photos of the same thing someday after randomly making their husbands pull over to the side of the road.... and I truly look forward to that:) B

Kathy said...

Oh, what we go through to get just the right angle and light! Good job!

Rose said...

Oh, gee, I love this/these.

see you there! said...

Love the old truck and the lengths you go through to get good shots.

I'm never moaning about my weeds again :) marvellous images EG.

Pamela Gordon said...

I love these photos CG. Great composition. The old truck is slowly being swallowed by the weeds and brush and the barn is pretty nice.

Judy said...

this is a nice view! that truck will be hidden by the grass soon too.

Pat Tillett said...

I wouldn't say you settled at all. Those are great photos! There is just something about old barns and old trucks.

Sue said...

That was definitely a shot worth taking. Glad you stopped!

=)

Great example of Mother Nature taking assertive control! An incredible, beautiful find!

Great captures. Mother Nature is certainly doing her best to take control.
