Hay Bails B&W

Now that I've processed a couple of black & white farm shots, I'm really enjoying it. I think because it gives a back in time feel to it. This was another trip I took around the county this week. This winter I really am planning on hitting up some of these areas especially when it snow's. Hope you enjoy.

Veteran's Day

While Stationed in Germany I had the privalege to visit General Patton's grave in Luxemburg. Who wanted to be buried facing his men. I'm sorry but this is the only picture I could find of the graveyard. And for those you ever get the chance to go to Europe I highly recommend visiting a WWII graveyard. It's a very sobering experiance. Have a great Veterans Day.

Lancaster Farmland

Today my wife and I went out to scout out new areas for landscape shots. I want to do a series on sunrises & sunsets with barns and fields. As well as this winter I'd like to have a set in Black & White. This was in an Old Order Mennonite field. The farmer was still out there loading the bails. And he did give me permission to photograph the field. Hope you enjoy.

Aster multi-exposure

It's funny how when winter starts to come in I start shooting more flowers. The warmth of the conservatory at Longwood Gardens is very appealing then. But I still have a couple of blossoms left in my backyard. So I hurried to get a couple of shots before it's too late. I got this idea from one of Ed Heaton's blog or Image of the week can't remember and combined it with William Neil's abstract shooting. I used 10shots going around in a circle then brought them all together for one image. Hope you enjoy

Susquehanna Reflection

Most of the leaves are gone but I still liked the late afternoon color. One of the rules of photography is not keep the horizon line in the middle of the frame. But I didn't want to lose the clouds in the sky or too much of the river. Plus what are rules for? To be broken. Hope you enjoy
