Poster Wild...
We're looking for that perfect photo that captures the story, the essence, and the mood of PLOWING UP A SNAKE for the upcoming reading.  
 Without more time, I probably won't find that PERFECT pic, but each of these is close.
Well, in that there are a couple on a farm, one on a river near a bridge, and the final one captures the ominous mood we need.
What we really need is a photo (or painting) of a foggy farm in winter with a snaking river and bridge beyond...and maybe a few dairy cows in the field.

I'd love to hear from you if you happen to have just such a picture.  And if you'd be willing to share it for the reading.  You'll get credit, naturally.  And perhaps even a warm fuzzy feeling, though there are no guarantees.

(Photos above by me hubby: of a Quaker District farm in Henniker, of Gleason Falls in Hillsborough, and of gnarly trees off of Depot Hill Road in Henniker.)

Hi, Dana!

All of those pictures are fabulous!I would have to say that the last two are my favorite and seem to really capture the feeling you are looking for.

If I had to choose one, hmmm...hmmm...the last one. I really like how it not only captures the feel you are looking for but when I look at it, I feel that ominous and almost scary feeling too.

Hope this helps!!

I wish I knew earlier. I would have liked to try to paint something for you. Right now, I don't think I could squeeze out the time. I like the scene, though.

Maybe you can use Photoshop to change the colors in the first picture to take out the vividness. If it had more gray in it, it would seem more ominous. If you don't know how, get the image to me digitally and I'll adjust it for you.
