This is another capture of the mansion and oak trees right before the sun was fully up and before the mist lifted on this early morning at the Oak Alley Plantation which I thought worked best as a black and white image. This misty look give this image a moody feel with the mansion and large old oaks in BW as the the morning mist settles over the property seems to transport you back in time. The Oak Alley plantation is a popular spot for tourist looking for history of the deep south and a feel for what life long ago was like on these plantations. The plantation was created in the early 1800’s as a surgar cane plantation and was worked by slaves so it rich in historic value. The plantation got it name from the many live oak trees that were planted over 300 years ago prior to the plantations existance. Some refer to this area as Oak valley or Seven Oaks and it is near the community of Vacherie St James Parish in Louisiana. Many movies has been made here especially including anything releated to the deep south civil war era along with many spooky movies. The Oak Alley Plantation is a National Historic Landmark as it is rich in history and is visited by many toursit yearly. The Foudation maintains the property today for the this historic site.
This is an sunrise landscape image of the wonderful live oak trees at Oak Alley Plantation. These old live oak trees are known to be over 300 years old and they were there even before there was a plantation or house on the property, but no one seems to knows who planted them, but we are glad they did. The plantation runs along the side of Mississippi river in the community of Vacherie, St. James Parish, Louisiana, U.S. This plantation was planted with sugar cane by slaves who live in the southern US and years before the grand old mansion was built these tree were already in place and somehow they knew right where they needed to be for the walkway from the house to the mississippi river. The trees there are amazing and we wanted to show you can do a triptych or multiple panel image from one image on our site to add that punch to a room. There are several reasons you might want to do a mulitple frame image; it allow the image to cover more wall space than a single image, it has modern look, also a mulitple panel images add a unique look to a photo and will be a show stopper and add that wow factor to the room. Please contact us if your interested in one of the split images style of photos.
