Pine Tree Forest at Sunset

by aaronpriest » Wed May 01, 2013 1:08 am

This small forest of pine trees is just a short walk from my house, right off the back field. I often walk up this little hill and sit and think on a large rock nestled in the bushes. At sunset a splash of golden light sets all the pine needles ablaze.

You wouldn't know it today, but 100 years ago this was a clearing where my wife’s great-great-grandparent’s house stood. Frederick and Anna Crocker raised their children in that home. Sadly, five died during a diphtheria epidemic. Only their baby girl Millie survived. Later, her younger brother Harry was born, and both lived to raise families of their own. Nothing remains of the house that Millie and Harry grew up in, save a black and white photo of the family and their home. Now my family lives in another house on the same farm that Frederick Crocker built as a wedding gift for Millie. It’s important that we photograph and document these things for future generations.

Hey Aaron!

Fine mood! Maybe a bit much of HDR ;)

best, Klaus

I fully agree! Things change faster and faster - and sometimes it´s very valuable to show the kids what and how it was before Facebook . . . :cool:

Very nice. And the family history 'makes' the pano.

In what year was that diphtheria epidemic?

Klaus, yup! ;-) Every now and then I push a scene a little into HDR cartoonish world on purpose. Photographers generally don't like it much, but other folks love it for some reason. At any rate, they get the most comments from both sides of the aisle, LOL! This one I wanted to have a somewhat heavenly yet somber feeling.

Andrew, I think the year was 1918 and it was often misnamed the Spanish flu locally. There are many gravestones in cemeteries around here with stones of that year, most with very short lifespans. I can't imagine losing nearly all your children in a two month timespan. :-(

It is great scenes too see. Its color, shape and look are much impressive. The story makes me sad but it is amazing thing that next generations see and observe that place. I move the cursor around it look much beautiful want to say everyone look that picture and delight. Hope you like it.
