Sweet Gum Tree
Farther down in our pasture on our farm in Randolph County is a large sweet gum tree. It's a spot I find myself returning to from time to time and year to year to make photographs. Not as colorful as maples in the fall, I somehow find the gum tree more interesting; the shape of a leaf on a lichen covered rock, and of course those prickly gum balls that are still green this time of year. Glad they're in the pasture and not in my yard.
