Sepia Scenes: Out to Pasture

Out to Pasture


Anyone know what this is? It looks like something that was dragged behind a tractor. Whatever it did, it hasn't done it in quite some time. We found it here, reclining against a giant old maple, dreaming of days gone by.

I took this one with the Sepia setting on my camera. I think I like the effect better when I convert a photo from color.

If those sticks were turned 90 degrees, I'd say it was a harrow. But as it is, I'm stumped. The first thing that came to mind was an old, slatted bedframe.

My fave so far for this week;-) Love the crisp shot!~

That's a good guess, Sally, judging from your link. Maybe the sticks were turned at one time, or maybe they're not fixed sideways like that. I'll have to check more closely.

Thanks, Yen! Glad you like it.

Whatever it may be,it certainly is rustic and a nice shot indeed!

The clarity in this photo is so good and the sepia really enhances the subject of your photo as well. I really like this photo very much!

What a great find! Sorry though, I don't know what it is.

This is indeed a type of harrow. The 'sticks' are metal and probably forged. They would rotate. This particular harrow was probably horse drawn as opposed to being pulled by a tractor and used more in a sandy soil rather than a clay one. Looks like an antique to me. I've love it hanging on my barn wall.
The sepia tone is quite appropriate!

Was it maybe a fence?

I don't have a clue but if my husband was here he would know.

What a great find for a shoot to use for Sepia.

I love it!:-)))

I like this a lot. Could it be a trellis? Nice sepia effect even though you say you like to convert rather than set your camera at sepia. :)

Thanks for the great feedback, everyone! And thanks for stopping by. I'm hip deep in alligators at the moment, so I may not get around to everyone's blogs this time, but I'll try.

it's beautiful!! I like the rich darkness of the wood.

Excellent shot! Just the right amount of tint, very soft. And that would look awesome hanging in a barn, or tool shed!
