Farmland

Mid Winter Sunrise

Well friends, we've reached another Friday... woohoo! These weeks are just getting too darn busy, goes against my grain.  Anyhow...

On a cold mid Winter morning, the sun rises over a farm. The previous night a dusting of snow had fallen to remove the olive drab grounds and hillside. This is a place I've passed many times and although it's a nice spot for sunrises, in the Summer there is too much green. During the Winter months, well, it's not much to look at either. Not to sound like Goldilocks, but this time things seemed just right. :-)

Time was of the essence!

I pulled over, grabbed the camera and braced myself between my vehicle driver's door (makes a nice shooting base in a hurry). Rattling off  about 5 sets of brackets before the Sun cleared the ridge and blew out the entire scene, this was the best of the lot.

Enjoy!

As always, I wish each of you a great weekend and thanks so much for your support. I really enjoy the community we've all built together, it's a lot of fun.

Until next time...

Roadside Stand

Welcome back, friends! In today's post we visit a site that is just down the road from these grazing horses, a roadside stand. During the Summer months here in the Mid-Atlantic Region you see these stands spread around the various counties, often on the edge of farmland. These are great places to gather fresh veggies, fruits and all sorts of sauces.

Roadside stands are not limited to produce, all sorts of wares are sold from these temporary places of commerce.

Of course, like many traditional markets I have my favorites that I repeatedly visit. This particular stand in Worthington Valley is located in western Baltimore County and falls in the favs category. A seasonal operation, they will stay open to well into the Fall when the last harvest of the year takes place.

So let's get to the goodies. If you like farm fresh produce and the likes, the Misty Valley Farm stand pictured below is the place for you.

Have a great day!
