My Ugly Farm

In the summer of 2009 I bought a small farm in southwest Virginia. Aesthetically it is one of the "ugliest" pieces of property I have ever seen. Approximately half of the property is an inpenetrable 10 year old clear-cut and the other half is comprised of cedar thickets and limestone rock outcrops. With that in mind, my objective as I photograph my farm is to see if I can "make ugly beautiful" and "hopefully" that's what this gallery is all about!
