Sunset over Cane Valley



2024-06-03 - Adair Co., KY - Photo by Robert Ellis, Robert Ellis Woodworking.
Robert wrote of this scene, "I think this time I’ll just keep mostly quiet and let the picture do the talking."

We are always happy when Robert turns his lens to the special scenes he sees in rural Kentucky, but fellow photographer (and sometimes CM contributor) William Lamkin had the perfect words for this photo when he wrote to Robert, "Wonderful photo. It's kind of a picture of your life's work. Woodworker, tending grapes, and then the photo itself displays your love of photography. It shows the places where you have most likely had many conversations with God, and it shows his beauty displayed for you. This photo really speaks to me more than any you have ever taken because it tells a story of you."

Are livestock and pets constantly roaming a problem county-wide?

By Brad Byington

It becomes frustrating when some people move to our area in the countryside and release their animals to free range. A few of the animals after a short time have become feral. We have animals, and it's a never-ending task to make sure they stay on our property. It's still possible for the critters to escape, which is all hands on deck to remedy the situation. We respect our neighbors and make an effort to be a good neighbor. When neighbors animals are out we contact them and have helped return them to their area the first time. Same animals out again we contact the owners.

Our concern first is older folks that live in our neighborhood with these animals darting out into roadway. Also school busses and general traffic passing thru. I have made phone calls looking for assistance in dealing with this problem. Each and every call ended with me being told it's someone elses issue.

My point to this is Im asking if any other areas are experiencing similar issues and is there any interest or ideas about pursuing it further. Thank you, --Brad Byington
