An Old House Nestled in the Tall Grass

I took this picture in Tyler State Park, about a half of a mile from Schofield Covered Bridge. I'm not sure but I think it's used as a ranger station.

It's so rustic looking and so lonely looking. But that makes it look very peaceful and serene. Hope you enjoyed your time away my friend :)

One of Andrew Wyeth's paintings comes to mind!

Beautiful rural scene.

Nice white contrast!

Malyss said...

I love this picture! the very simple lines of the landscape and the beautyful light make me think of a Edward Hopper 's painting.

(Thank you for your nice comments! and to answer to your question:no, I did not swim around the white statue, because :1) it was in a port with plenty of boats, and 2)and not least, the water was VERY cold!!Ü)

Hi,

Bello.
Buona giornata :-)

Very nice. In a few weeks, it will be harder to see the house because the field will fill in.

I think it's romantic!I liked the field and the green that is growing up for this Spring , like a feeling of hope for better days...
Great shot!

It does bring to mind the Wyeth style painting.

This is the kind of scene we see quite often when camping at our state parks in southern and central Minnesota. Not as much in northern MN though. Nice feel to the shot...very warm.

VP said...

Rebecca is right: it looks like 'Christina's World' without Christina...

Stickup Artist said...

Oh my YES, Bibi, Rebecca and VP nailed it... Christina's World without Christina! Have you been to the Wyeth Museum? It's located at a lovely spot on the Brandywine River.

I really enjoy taking these walks with you. This landscape is so peaceful in its subtle beauty.

I love your title - an old house nestled in the tall grass - perfect description for such a beautiful shot.

Rebecca said...

Your comment on My Gear post gave me a smile!

Rebecca said...

Oops, I also wanted to mention that if you are interested in going to Glen Onoko (Jim Thorpe area) I put a post on it on my regular blog on Sunday. At the bottom is some helpful info that we had trouble finding online anywhere.

Owen said...

They must have a good painter, the place literally glows !

And totally agree with previous mentions of Wyeth here...

Carolyn Ford said...

Such beautiful open spaces and I love the golden field of grass.

Tulsa Gentleman said...

Simple. Beautiful. Simply beautiful. The others have said it all.

Sunny said...

I looked at your picture again and it reminds me so much of Andrew Wyeth's painting, 'Christina's World'. It's really quite beautiful.

As Sunny wrote - very reminiscent of "Christina's World"...
