One of the beauties of South Carolina is the rural countryside with its barns, trees and fields. Here is a bit of it and hopefully all of the back country will not be developed.
Yesterday Al and I did our weekly wander and found Hopewell Plantation, which is on part of the Clemson University campus. To learn more, here is the link, https://www.google.com/search?q=hopewell+house%2C+clemson&, Check it out,
I am trying to get a set of fog images and fog shrouded landscapes seem as delicate and fragile to represent as the landscapes themselves.
Al and I were riding out in the country near Newberry, SC. The countryside is amazing in the fall with perfect light and great color.A bonus was when the engineer stopped to chat with us.
Old farms always have echoes of the past and presentiments of the future which is part of what makes them so interesting to photograph.
This is first of a few blogs from a drive through the countryside where we found an old farm. I love the old buildings and the sheets hanging on the line tells us that someone is still living there.
South Carolina has many historic sites and this is one of the more important ones. The late fall is a great time to visit with the trees having either lost their leaves or are carrying golden leaves .Here is a link which gives a good description of the place and its history, http://chmuseums.org/battle-of-hucks-defeat-hb/.

Among the gems near Lunenburg is the Ross Farm Museum which accurately portrays farm life in the 1800’s. It is beautiful as well as educational. Here is alink for more information, https://rossfarm.novascotia.ca/about-ross-farm,
A bit away from Lunenburg is the Ross Farm Museum, an old farm which now operates as a ,museum where they grow heritage vegetables, animals as well as maintain old crafts such as woodworking and blacksmithing.
