Amish Adventure

As I eluded to on Thankful Thursday, I played hooky on Friday and Himself and I took a drive down to Amish country.    It wasn’t one of our typical trips were we go from store to store loading up on our favorite foods and other goodies.  Don’t get me wrong, we did get all the butter, bacon and cheese we wanted; but we brought home something even better – lots of pictures!

It was a gloriously, sun-shiny day and we went well equipped with two cameras.  I was armed with the PhD one (press here dummy) and Himself had the one that you actually need brains to work.  I think between the two of us we captured more than 200 photos.  I could have easily taken two thousand, had we stopped at every interesting or beautiful sight, but we would probably still be down there.

In the winter you get a view there that is just not possible in the summer.  The vistas seem to go on forever.  The houses and barns, horses, goats, and sheep, the silos and windmills are not hidden by tall growing corn.   The red of the barns seem to pop against the golds and browns of fallow fields.

More pictures of our adventure can be found here.

  4. Awesome. We'll make you a photo-journalist yet!

  5. Love the pics! I wish I had a photographic eye. :-(
    However, I'll live vicariously through your pics.. :-)
