A Late Summer Pastoral Scene

While driving along looking for reference material for painting, I came across this view. It seemed to be a painting in itself! The one thing that would have made it much better would be if the creek was full. We had been without rain for quite a while and the water level was very low. This photo was taken about ten miles west of Greensburg on September 14, 2009.

Champ's Ford Stone Arch Bridge

This back country road four span bridge crosses over Clifty Creek with a length of 130 feet. It is located on CR100S about ten miles west-southwest of Greensburg. It was built around 1890 and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 22, 2009. This view is looking northeast.

Another View of the Bridge

Looking northeast from a little ways downstream.

A Third View of the Bridge

Another view of the bridge looking to the northwest. I would like to capture some images of this bridge in the spring or autumn.

The Bridge From Above

Scarcely any sign of a bridge, I took out the small warning sign at the other end and a few other items. This view looks to the west.

An Old Abandoned Barn Near Greensburg

I was in a hurry trying to get to Greensburg before I lost the morning sun when I saw this barn. It turns out that this was very popular on my blog. And no...I did not get to Greensburg in many stops getting good views!

An Old Iron Bridge Near Greensburg

An old iron bridge built in 1913 by the Central States Bridge Company of Indianapolis. It is located about eight miles northwest of Greensburg near Downeyville. The bridge is 101 feet long and this view shows the southeast portal. These old “Ironies” are becoming rare as so many of them are being replaced.

Flatrock River

A view of the Flatrock river from the bridge, looking to the southwest or to the left in the image above. According to the man that was fishing from the bridge, this is a good area for doing so. These photos were taken on July 21, 2009.

Round Barn Near Greensburg

A friend told me about this round barn and it didn't disappoint me. It is located a couple of miles northwest of Greensburg.  It is nearly impossible to get a good photo of it at this time of year, at least from the road. Either the crops, the large tree or a building partially hides it. This view is looking to the north, and was taken in the morning of July 21, 2009.

Another View of the Round Barn

This photo taken in the afternoon of December 1, 2009 is a rather striking view thanks to the corn being harvested. I was nearly a quarter of a mlle away when I shot this and I love the zoom capabilities of this camera. This is looking to the east and as you can see, they were buttoning down the hatches for winter.
