This rural landscape can be found near Indian Land in Lancaster County. Indian Land’s name comes from the fact that the area continued to be populated by Indians – predominantly of the Catawba and Waxhaw tribes – after Europeans settled in surrounding areas.
Herb Dickinson, who submitted the photo above, writes, “With the spread of Charlotte, bordering Lancaster County is seeing incredible growth in track housing and corporate centers being built in the panhandle of the county. The beautiful scenery along the Lancaster highway in this area is disappearing. I wanted to capture the farm with the owner’s permission. Even with the hum of the highway, the horses peacefully wait their afternoon feeding with the wild blackberries blooming outside the fence.”
