Photo of the Week...Shadows

Wouldn't you just know it, the day I want to find some good shadows, the sun will not cooperate! Two of my kids, Mandy and Ryan, suggested we take a drive down some of our back roads, staying nearer to home. They took me to places that I had never been before. The pic on the right is of a barn near "Horseshoe Ranch". We were trying to capture the shadows of the sunlight peering though the slatted sidding, but I think we may have caught a mistic orb. I have heard ghost stories about this place...spooky!!

Another journey down "Hyatt's Creek Road" we came upon a cave near a place called Alcorn Hollow. Ryan crawled in, just to snap a few pics of how the light streams in from a small opening above. Further in, and past a small pool of water, the cave opens into a large cavern...awsome!!

You just never know what you might find while venturing down the back roads of Reynolds County. New places, old places, new friends, old friends, (we acutally came across an old buddy to visit with). Some places have changed and many have stayed the same, but everyone has their own stories about the where's and why's and how's...

Have a great Monday.....Shelly


  1. You got some great photos, even without the cooperation of the sunshine!

  2. Great shots, Shelly! My favorite is the very last one. Sounds like you and the kids had a great Sunday. You all live in such a beautiful area.

  3. Great shots, Shelly! It looks like Mandy and Ryan's suggestions paid off. I like the second one best. I think I would LOVE exploring Reynolds County!
