Thursday Thirteen

For today, I offer up a study of light (or perhaps: scenes from my life).

1.


Remnants of a beech tree.

2.

A six-point buck caught in the fading sun.

3.

The Godwin Cemetery in Fincastle.

4.
Sunrise over the Peaks of Otter this morning (7:20 a.m.).

5.

The Town of Fincastle from Cemetery Hill at Godwin Cemetery.

6.

Fincastle Methodist Church at Godwin Cemetery.

7.

Most of my husband's relatives are buried here, including his grandparents.

8.

My husband's family farm.

9.

Aunt Jenny's house on the other side of the farm.

10.

The old chicken coop as seen through the oak trees.

11.

Light on leaves.

12.

More light on leaves.

13.

A squirrel that barked at me for a very long time.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; you can learn more about it here. My other Thursday Thirteens are here. This is number 112!

  2. What beautiful pictures, I especially like that very orange tree in the first graveyard picture. I never seem to have the time to stop & take many pictures these days!
    I have a lot of trouble reconciling the cost of satellite radio too.

  6. Oh, wow!! Such beautiful pictures!! I wish I could take some even half as good!

    ROFL - a squirrel barked at you? I think I might need to change cold medicines, because I'm picturing a squirrel with a little dog collar on, going "WOOF WOOF!" ...yeah, time to change cold medicines.

  11. Beautiful pictures, Anita! You are so blessed to live on a farm like that. When I picture my dream place to live, it looks like that. Though, of course, I am very thankful for where I live now.
