Oak Avenue

Wormsloe Plantation's Oak Avenue

Oak Avenue - © Copyright 2012 by William Beem

Wormsloe Plantation’s Oak Avenue – it’s a popular place for photographers and you can find many images similar to this one.  Even so, each one is a bit different. Some like to shoot through the main gate.  Others like to head down the road a bit to include a white fence on the horizon.  The seasons affect the color & mood.  It’s all the same place with a few different twists.

I couldn’t help but think what it must be like to ride down this road on a horse & buggy, just slowly loping along while surrounded by the oaks. It’s a very peaceful and serene place when there are no cars whizzing down the road. It reminds me of the neighborhood where I grew up on Oak Island Road.  Just a dirt path, a few houses on the side, all surrounded by plenty of oak trees. I almost expect to see some of my childhood friends run barefoot down the road to take me fishing.

  1. Very nice! Tallahassee has several streets with oak canopies similar to this — the city considers it one of its claims to fame. If you ever get a chance while in the area, you should try shooting them. I could give you some direction to where you’ll find the best vantage points. Just try it on a weekday before or after rush hour; some of them are heavily-traveled streets at times.
