Sepia Scenes - Brought to you by Mary the Teach

Moses Cone Memorial Park features 21 miles of riding trails including this one just down the hill from the carriage house. The tunnel is actually an arched stone bridge, that carries the road over the riding trail.Violence Unsilenced

That's very cool, Mojo. I wonder, then, how old the tunnel is.

Carletta said...

Way cool shot!
You don't have snow how do you?

Original and fine angle. Fine sepia effect.

Patti said...

I like the perspective you chose to photograph this. It looks desolate there, with the snowy trails waiting for people to visit.

Annie said...

Outstanding, Jazz. Almost like looking through a keyhole.

Very cool perspective. Reminds me of an old postcard.

Truly beautiful sepia tone and photo, Mojo! Happy Sepia Scenes! :)

The stone arch is great, and of course, makes the gray stones look not so stark, almost soft. And NC snow...I don't think of snow around RDU. But I could be wrong!

Somehow, it looks warmer looking through the arc. I'll stay in the tunnel till the snow melts away!! *bbbrrrrrzzz*

I feel like entering one of the gates to Narnia. The sepia adds a wonderful fairytale effect to me. Best wishes :)

What a great shot, I love the fence in the background and the framing with the tunnel.

Horse/Bike trail? Do you go here often? More importantly. Can we play hockey there?

PJ said...

The sepia through the tunnel is really interesting. I like stone anything.

This would look great hanging in my living room. I have no abilities with Sepia but you do apparently.
