Title Blue Ridge Farm Land
Category Jan 2014/Silver/Color/3rd Place
Location VIrginia/ Blue Ridge Parkway
Reason For Making the Image I took this photo during a recent visit to Virginia, while driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway.   When I noticed the barn on the hill, I stopped to look closer, and  then realized that the overall landscape scene had a number of elements that I could bring together into a strong composition.  The barbed wire fence leads the viewer across the field to another fenced area, some trees, a beautiful dramatic sky, mountains in the distance, and then the barn with a rust colored roof.  The image is further enhanced by the strong contrast of colors and the texture of the fence posts.  Overall, this is one of my favorite images.
