I have added a new fine art photograph to the online gallery. The picture shows the sun setting on an old, rusty vintage piece of farm equipment. I’m not fully sure what it is, but I think it is some type of grader. The photo was taken in a rural farming area of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina not too far from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
I like the way the low light of the setting sun and the long shadows it creates is cast upon the side of the grader. It makes this photo look almost 3D. When I composed the picture I tried to put it in context. On the right and filling most of the picture is open pasture farm land. On the upper left is other vintage farm equipment which I tried to connect the grader to. At the location this picture was taken, there are probably 50 or 60 pieces of old vintage farm equipment parked along the side of the road. I talked to the retired farmer about them and he told me that over his long lifetime career as a farmer, as equipment was replaced he would park it on the side of the road. But he also told me that every piece was restored to functionality before it was replaced there. I have taken many pictures at this location, but have not visited it in years. A developer purchased some very large chunks of land not to far from the farmer’s location and began building huge retirement home meccas. I would not be surprised to fine the old farm equipment is no longer lining the side of the road.
