resubmit 9/18/10, catchall. This scene was a quick U-Turn moment as we drove through rural Mississippi last Spring. The daffodils were in bloom around this old barn.

I can just hear you screaming, "STOP, STOP! to your pedal-to-the-metal husband! :) And he did...what a guy! Worth all that burnt rubber on the freeway - an outstanding composition, wonderfully dramatic sky and tree (love the way it claws it's way up to the sky! Yes, claws..), complete with a dilapidated shack (that we all love but never can seem to find) decorated by a scattering of daffodils...yes, definitely worth the turn-around! As always, Carol, excellent job!! #8530034
