I finally had a chance to visit my friend Bill and his wife Pat yesterday, and whenever I visit them, I get to visit the horses as well. The sun, the lens flare, the location of the horses (and my gimpy leg) made photography a bit of a challenge.
Doesn’t the light just add to the beauty of these beautiful animals?
Last Friday, I had to be out of the house earlier than normal in order to get my annual mammogram. Because of that appointment, I also traveled a slightly different route than is typical. This pastoral scene was my lovely reward.
Ah! There are more benefits than you know to getting a mammogram!
I’m not much of a gardener. The colors in my yard are there by luck and happenstance (okay maybe a teeny bit of work by me). Thankfully others, including Mother Nature, have placed color in my yard, along my drive to work, outside my office and in the farms nearby.
Well … wine is colorful too, right?

Not the best photo, but those cows were watching every move I made
This is the second of three posts that includes photographs that I took at a local farm. The first photos were close up shots of various parts of the red barn that sits on that property. These shots reveal the wonderful uniqueness of 2 outbuildings that are part of the farm. I loved the shadows that danced all over them that day.
About a month ago, I posted a photo of a red barn that I had been eyeing from the road for over a year. I took that picture while leaning way over the fence. The owner gave me permission to access the land and so this past Saturday I spent some time walking around taking pictures of the barn and miniature horses. It was a bright, beautiful day, so much so that the red on the barn was a bit washed out in the sun.
How strange that just two days ago, I was walking around on a sunny 50+ degree day and ever since, we have had low temps and a Christmas type snowfall.
Fall leaves … in a snowshower … at the beginning of spring
Close Ups of the Barn
Coming Soon!! More Shots from the Farm but from a distance!
Despite the 15 degree weather, the day dawned beautifully and I spent a couple hours outside shooting the local scenery. One thing I learned? I need to get gloves that protect my fingers in sub freezing temperatures!
This old farmhouse sits right along side the road and I pass it on the way home each evening. I loved the shadows on the side of the house.
I pass this farm on the way to work each morning and in order to take pictures, I have to get on the highway and pull over just off the exit ramp. As usual, I wonder what the folks driving by think as I climb over the guard rail and wander around in the weeds.
