Theme Day - When People think of my town...

...they think of... the Twin Oaks. I didn't know that until I moved here - in fact I knew nothing about Sharon except that it had an Audubon center. (Which is probably something else people think of!) But on our first visit, our host drove us up to the peak of the hill on Route 41 to view the famous vista. This shot (which is featured in my show - see yesterday's post!) is from a different angle - you have to hike up into the field to see them this way.

What else is Sharon best known for? There are probably many answers to that - anyone want to nominate something (or someONE) else?

Anyway, it's Theme Day again for the City Daily Photoblog family. As of this writing, 135!!! blogs are planning to post something iconic about their city. Take a tour around the world:

What a wonderful landscape! I ask myself what it is about trees. They are so photogenic most of the time, don't you agree?

Yah, great shot. As for what Sharon is best known for, it's not terribly glamorous and photoworthy, but I'm afraid Sharon is best known for its hospital.

Have you shot it before?

Going with your previous post, I'd say Sharon will be well-known by it's daily photo blog ! :P

Terry, I've done a shot once or twice of the hospital, but it's not very photogenic outside, and I never thought to shoot inside (probably wouldn't be allowed to!)

One of the best tree photos I've seen. The snow and blue sky really set it off.

A perfect tree & I appreciate the light dust of snow too. I only know Sharon through your blog and I do remember some of your other photos of these (or other) oaks.

That is a gorgeous photo! You are lucky to have such natural beauty there.

I echo Edwin and Sally. This shot is literally breathtaking. Kudos! As I was about to click on your blog I thought to myself what is Sharon known for. . . Well, I only know Saron because of your images, and what came to my mind as a repeating theme was the oaks, so hooray. I'm in insider now, I guess ;^).
