Bluegrass Scenic Byway, Lexington, Kentucky

As I was rummaging through my photos on my desktop tonight, I happened upon this image I took a couple of years ago at just about this time of the year. I thought perhaps my blog friends might like it. In Kentucky tobacco curing in the barn is a common site this time of year. This photo was taken in the Bluegrass Region just northwest of Lexington, Kentucky on the Bluegrass Scenic Byway. This drive, should you ever find yourself in Kentucky, is a beautiful one any time of year but especially so in Fall.

I will be traveling again this weekend to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park south of Knoxville, Tennessee. Such a beautiful, beautiful place. I plan on shooting a lot of photos and posting them in the next few weeks. And the good news is after a large dose of WD40 spray on my Pentax release knob, it's miraculously working again. So along with my digital, I'll take my 20 year old camera to the forest and see if it will shoot some of the leftover slide rolls I have in my camera bag. Wish me luck.

I hope you enjoy the photo! If you read this post, I would love for you to comment. I'm still new at this and I need your input.


  1. It's a lovely photo, Carol, but I wish I could see it larger when I click on it.

    We'll be visiting Red River Gorge in late October, our second time there in 5 years - Kentucky certainly is beautiful in the fall!

  2. Carol I'm in love!! I love old rustic buildings like this and the fall light is hitting it just right....good luck this weekend girl and I look forward to seeing your wonderful photo's of your tip :) Excited for you!
