One of the things I love about the Christmas season is all of the little stands that pop up on our back roads selling trees and what not. I have passed this little stand since Thanksgiving, and with the rain clouds finally breaking up, I decided to get out a take some shots. The is at the intersection of Barndt and Deitz Mill Roads in Salford, PA.
Having spent most of this holiday weekend working on some much needed painting at home, Daniel and I headed out to see what shots we could find around the Boyertown area. With no success, we headed home. As we passed through Frederick, PA, we could the sun setting over this long abandoned farm on Bog Road (route 73).
A cow grazes in a foggy pasture along Fretz Road as the sun rises. This is one of my more favorite places to photograph. In years past I used to also hunt the woods just to the right in archery season.
The sky looked like it was set up for a perfect mackerel sky, but a stubborn cloud had different ideas. Still, this sunrise along Cowpath Road in Telford isn't so bad either. I pass this farm every morning on the way to work.
Since I woke up early this morning, I thought I would go to a spot I drive by on the way to work. I waited almost an hour for the sun to peak up above the tree line along the back of this meadow. What a great spot.
I don;t know about sailors, but they sure are a photographers delight! Having worked a 12 hour day, I did not have much time to get afield tonight. I got home at 7:21, grabbed my gear and ran out. The red sky caught my attention over this once busy farm.
I could not help but head out tonight to grab some shots of this stalled front that was set up just south of us. I love this green barn, and the lit up clouds just parked themselves right above for a great backdrop. Enjoy!
One of the farmers in our area still farms with an old Ford Jubilee tractor. These tractors will made in the mid 1950's, and many are still going strong. I found this one along Deitz Mill Road, in Telford, PA.
This is a farm over on North Charlotte Street in Gilbertsville, PA, that we have been wanting to shoot for almost 6 months. This shot is actually taken from the YMCA parking lot. This is also my first stab at HDR.
This telephoto shot was taken across the corner of Fretz and Deitz Mill Roads in Telford, Pa. It is a out building that stores hay and straw, along with farm equipment at a local farm that we used to hunt deer.
Driving around some after work, Spring Mount Ski Area caught my eye, sitting beyond this farm on Shelly Road, in Upper Salford, PA. Hard to believe it's late March, with some snow in the forecast for tonight.
Sometimes the picture comes to you. After spending a few hours doing chores and shooting some photos, Daniel and I headed home for the afternoon. Around 4:30 we heard noise out in the neighbor's field. They were picking the corn... in March!
Today was very strange. The temperature got into the 50's, with thunderstorms in the afternoon. Around 4:00, the clouds started to break. With all of the snow still on the ground, a fog started to form along the creeks.
