Another growing season begins

This particular barn, located in Hubbard Cove just below the Cumberland Plateau in central Tennessee, was more open than enclosed, with well-worn and warped wooden siding. It stands vigil beside Asbury Road, faithfully continuing to perform the task it was given many years ago -- to stand there and provide cover for crops and implements.

One more day, one more spring, one more growing season.

Speaking of growing season, today is an anniversary of sorts. I set up this blog on Blogger one year ago, without knowing exactly why I was doing so and with no real plan as to what to do with it. You can see my very unspectacular first post here. My second post was not until more than a month later, after I figured out what I wanted to try to accomplish with this blog. It's been a growing year for me as a photographer. Committing to post a photo every day tends to do that to you. Thanks to all of you regular visitors and commenters (you know who you are) that continue to come along for the ride. I appreciate you.

That first photograph is just as breathtaking as the others throughout the year.

You have a beautiful gift that I hope you'll continue to share for a long time.

You have some great photos and I visit it most days to have a look. Its great looking at the pictures as it gives a different insight into the US countryside. Keep it going.

Congratulations on your anniversary, James. Many of your photos mean a lot to me. I was in Elgin last week taking photos on my in-law's farms that are slated for development soon. The owners have given them one or two more years of farming the land they've farmed for most of their lives.
