The Quiet Farm

I have always found farms, barns and all things related to this rural lifestyle as attractive photographically. Today's image was taken on another early morning drive. There had been rain during the overnight so I was out early hoping for one of those unpredictable but surprisingly nice sunrises as the sky cleared. It never happened on this morning so I setup and tried to make the best of things from a spot along the roadside where vehicles can temporarily park.

This is the same farm the gave us "Til the Cows Come Home" in a previous post. This time, there were no signs of activity and it was eerily quiet. I guess the cows went home afterall. :-)

I wondered what this image would look like after a black & white conversion. You can see the result below.

As the Winter season winds to a close there will be plenty of activity to see in the coming weeks and months. The now quiet farms will spring to life as the planting and growing seasons begin anew.

Thanks for visiting!

Quiet Morning

Welcome back and thanks so much for your comments and support on the previous post. Much appreciated! Today's image was pulled from the archives where there are many awaiting processing (good problem to have). ;-) I came to realize long ago that you have to be in a certain mood for some images. When I saw today's it took me back to last Summer when I was out early one Sunday morning. In fact, I took this shot across the street from these arches. Anyhow, the neighborhood was very quiet, like most on an early Sunday, and I was drawn to the nicely bricked street leading to a small residential area. Not a creature was stirring, as they say.

Can hardly wait for those wonderful Spring and Summer mornings ahead.

Enjoy!
