Abandoned Church on Hill
Abandoned church on hill in the back country of Texas. Never know what you’ll find by turning down a gravel road
While visiting out of town, checking out the area seemed like a great idea. So the two of us set out on an adventure of sorts. Well an adventure for me since the area was unfamiliar. Boy howdy, you can’t find shots like this without exploring and taking chances. Of course nothing too dangerous!
Knowing there was an unincorporated town around, exploring we went. After about 15 minutes and no luck finding the town, a gravel road out of sight appeared. Ah hah! This has to be it or finding the town will be a bust. Honestly, hope was dwindling faster than the car was moving.
About 1/2 mile down the road there’s really nothing to see. As we crested a little hill, this abandoned church revealed itself. WOW! Out of nowhere stood this abandoned church on hill with storm clouds developing behind it. Quickly set up camera and tripod, when the sun poked through lighting up the roof.
Just goes to show what can be found by turning onto a gravel road. That’s why I love venturing out into the back country. Slow paced, no idiot drivers and wonders unseen by many present themselves. Especially for this adventurous photographer! Rather than take the fast paced highways, try a leisurely country road
