Friday My Town Shoot Out - Country Roads

This week's theme - country roads - was the brainchild of Gordon. By the way Gordon, where are you?? I've been missing your posts.

A few recent shots from along and near Highway 59 (which is very much a country road), north of Woodstock, Ontario.

This is the United Church in Hickson.


A little north of Hickson something was either being picked up or dropped off.

And this budding tree and roof peak shot was taken in Tavistock, which is also along 59.



Please pop by our site to see what everyone else has been shooting.

  2. good morning Elaine. Have you ever been inside the United Church - are those stained glass windows? the design looks like a mixture of european/german castle and the wood frame churches of the scandinavian countries.... how about pictures of the inside...

  7. Our country roads are so different, Elaine. That's what I love about FSO. You have some wonderful farm buildings in your part of the world! (As well as those fab bridges.)

  9. where is everybody? The church is very majestic. The country people must have poured all their money into building it.

  10. The big sky and huge vista really does remind me of the few times I have driven through Ontario. Wide open spaces!
