Last of the Autumn Barns

Hello everyone. I'm back. Been a crazy past couple of weeks. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are preparing for an equally wonderful Christmas.

I know its cold for most of us and the autumn leaves are long gone but I have a few autumn barns I want to share and get cleaned out of the archives for this year. 





 not sure if this was a funeral or a wedding.


The next three images are all the same barn.







Not sure how much I'll be around in the coming weeks.  I sometimes find it hard to blog in the winter time. I haven't been out with my camera for what seems like ages. Too much life happening I guess. 

Linking with Tom today for THE BARN COLLECTIVE. 

Have a great week everyone.

Hershey Fence

Mom and I travelled to Lancaster for a wedding on November 5th.

On the way home the next day, we found this beauty outside of Hershey Pa. 

Did I ever say I LOVE stone barns?

I LOVE stone barns.

This is from the back of the lot.  See the birds to the left?

Off to my right these little guys were resting in the morning sunshine.

Side shot. They still had a bit of fall color since it was further south of u.

Simple Autumn Beauty

These bales have been here for several years and I've wanted to get a picture of them in the snow. 
However when I drove by this year with the trees all ablaze with color I had to stop. 
Maybe I'll try again when it snows. 





And a sweeping view of George's Valley.

Autumn Scenes ~ Part 5 (Leaves)

One day when I was on one my day trips in the mountains I found a wondrous sight. I had stopped at an overlook to admire and photograph the panorama of the valley before me. 

As I was standing there I began to notice the leaves at my feet and they were covered with water/rain droplets.  I hadn't remembered it raining at my house during the night but it could have rained here in the mountain. 











This one was on top of a rock and this is the way I found it. I never touched it. I didn't touch any of them, they are just as I found them. I was quite enchanted.

 I made a bunch of images then I drove up the road a bit and got out and walked back a trail where I made the images below. 














They were all so beautiful laying on the forest floor and hanging in the pine trees. 


I even found this secluded spot. Would you eat a picnic lunch there?

Autumn Scenes ~ Part 4 (Country Roads)

Ok first off I'm gonna warn ya....this is a picture heavy post. 

I love to travel back country roads, especially in the autumn. When I'm out driving there's just something about a curve in the road that invites me to get out and make an image. 

So today I'm sharing some of my country roads and maybe you will get to see a glimpse of what's around the corner.

they are best viewed in lightbox, just click on them.





Sometimes I'm on my way to a destination and there's nothing to see along the road but trees. 
 
Sometimes after I have arrived there is a gorgeous view to behold. In the above image I am standing looking back where I just came from. If I turn and look out to my right the next image is what you see. 

 Nothing by gorgeous Pennsylvania mountains clothed in autumn splendor. 

 Sometimes I'm standing in the middle of the road and looking one way. 

 Then I'm looking the other way. 

So I walk toward the curve to see what's just around the bend. What a view. 

And walk a little more off to the left of the above image. 



So many roads to explore......so little time.

One thing I always do is look behind where I've just come from.....there's beautiful roads there too. 

May the road rise to meet you....may the wind always be at your back. 

If you're still with me, I hope you have enjoyed our little road trip.
