Photographer's Note

Outside Wakefield, Va. South-eastern Virginia is rural. But a lot of the farms there are not what you would typically expect; they grow pine trees as their crop. I was driving down a paved side road (there are as many unpaved ones out there) and saw this in my rearview. Got out and snapped it. Essentially, these are the trees 'left over' after a clear cut. A logging company comes in, clear cuts the land, and leaves a row of trees as a border to the next property. Luckily, they also leave a few trees for wildlife - if you go down there after a clear cut you will see acres of debris with an occasional lone tree. It can be perceived as ugly in the light of day but if you wait for the right light... About a year after a clear cut, you can see saplings peaking out in organized rows. 25 years later, you have tomorrow's picture.
