The shot above was found near Macon, MS right past Noxubee Co. High School on a gravel road that runs right next to the school. I think this is the best type of sky to shoot. This was on a day of just driving around to see what was out there.
Sometimes I like to just get out and ride around the area on a nice day and just see what there is to photograph. So often when we (by we I mean everyone) travel we stay on the main road to get to where we are going faster, but I've found that if you want to find more interesting things you have to get off the main road and onto the backroads because that's where the good shots are. When my wife and I, or if it's just me, are out riding or travelling somewhere I will just take a stab at a random road and see what's off the beaten path. Sometimes it's a complete waste of time and other times I hit gold and find something totally unique that I would have otherwise never seen. And part of showcasing what the state has to offer is showing what is not often seen anymore by the people who live here. Some of my shots will be things that are well known by Mississippians and others may not, and I think the most interesting things are the latter. Those are the places I want to know about, so if there are some that you know about, then I hope you'll share them with me so I can see it for myself. But I will continue to keep investigating the old bumpy gravel roads to find some hidden treasures.
There's probably a metaphor in there somewhere.
