This Friday, our challenge is Shooters Choice!! Anything goes as long as it showcases your town. I’m interpreting that as showing you where I live. I’m not a town person and anyway, town is quite some distance from where I live. As this is a farming community, constant topics of conversation are the weather and our road. As the weather impacts on the state of the road, I’ve chosen to concentrate on the road home.
Sometimes it’s wet and slushy:
Sometimes the potholes are a challenge. To avoid them you have to hug the railings of the bridge. Not a place for nervous drivers.
Sometimes the road is flooded but I don’t have any photos of floodwater over the road. I have other things on my mind when faced with that. The next shot is taken from the road but the water has not yet covered it.
At this spot, further up the road past my house, water is often trickling over the road:
and makes a pretty little waterfall as it tumbles off down to the creek.
When the road is dry, vehicles kick up a cloud of dust making it easier to see if there is vehicle up ahead. When you come up behind a truck like this it’s a matter of letting the driver see you are behind them. Most of them are very considerate and will wave you on when they can see far enough ahead to know it is safe for you to get past.
There are a few one lane bridges – this is the big one. Yeah, go on, have a laugh! It’s a big one for around here!
And this is the little one, closest to home.
At this time of year there is often fog. Here is the same little bridge, from the other direction. Can’t see it? It’s there, the sign says so.
In summer, one neighbour grows a vegetable garden at the bottom of the bank to the right of the bridge.
Another often grazes the Long Acre.
I’m looking forward to seeing what the other FSO folk show us this week. They will all be here.
