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.
