[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo is dedicated to all John Denver fans. While I was driving home from our book study last Sunday, the refrain from John Denver's song was passing through my mind:

Country Roads, take me home,
To the place I belong.
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads.

Although Enon Valley is not in West Virginia, about an hour's drive south would take me into the northern spur of West Virginia.

Taşra Yolları, Beni Eve Götürün

Bu fotoğraf tüm John Denver hayranlarına adamıştır. Ben geçen Pazar bizim kitap etüdünden eve dönerken, John Denver şarkısının nakaratı aklımdan geçiyordu:

Taşra Yolları, beni eve götürün,
Benim ait olduğum yere.
Batı Virginia, dağ anası
Beni eve götürün, taşra yolları.

Enon Valley Batı Virginia'da olmasa da, güneye aşağı yukarı bir saatlik mesafe beni Batı Virginia’nın kuzey çıkıntısına atar.

Dramatic sky with interesting clouds, great colors of the light of setting sun, very nice composition with this country road

Love the colors of the clouds! Good pov and nice details even the house. Well done, tfs.

Hello Murat,
a fascinating combination of the spectacular sky and the tranquil landscape that's steadily immersing in the evening darkness. Driving home through this scenery and atmosphere must have been wonderful. I like the fiery colours in the sky as well as the freshness and depth of the landscape. I also like the feeling of anticipation regarding the route ahead and the charming detail of a pink reflection in the foreground. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

PS Yes, I always have my camera with me during the day and to my surprise the people around me like and respect this incurable habit:)

Hi Murat,

You're capturing well this tasteful place and tasteful time by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to remember the landscape with pastoral nature which John Denver sang his song "Country Roads, Take Me Home". I heard well this song when I was young. It seems to the hometown of Americans' heart here. So, it's impressive in the counry road with ups and down, wide green lawn with wooden fence, a row of tree with silhouette and burnt sunset sky. It looks like a healing world.

Kind regards,

Murat Bey,
Tablo gibi bir fotoğraf.çok başarılı.
Buranın resmini yapmak isterdim.
Ortadaki siyah fotoğrafın ağırlık merkezi,hele yolun sonunda evin önündeki beyaz leke beni çok heyecanlandırdı.

Hi Murat,

Taking a trip back through your gallery tonight and this one caught my attention. What a gorgeous sunset, which plays well into the sentiment expressed with your chosen title and subject matter.

It may not be an open road like a highway, but the feeling is just the same out in the country, yeah? :) This really has that "coming home" vibe about it, taking the long road in to be at home for the warm summers evening while enjoying the sounds of silence.

Just can't go wrong with a green/red color combo either. A great visual to end any day!

Friendly regards,
