Big Valley Fences ~ 20

I'm really trying to decide whether to continue this series.  

I have enough images of Big Valley to probably do 20 more posts', however I fear it is getting old. 

I really would like something fresh and new for my blog but with my new work schedule, I am not having much time to devote to photography.

How do you all keep your readers and commenters coming back?????

Today's images are from this past winter and the fall image is from 2008.





The barn above was also featured in this POST with the horses out front.

As far as I am concerned...I could look at posts like this for the rest of the year and would love them all. I really do love the photos...so many would make great puzzles, or would make lovely greeting cars.

Bill said…
As others have said, I always enjoy your barns--- or whatever else you want to point that camera at...!
Ida said…
I certainly am not tired of your series, they are fabulous. Those first 2 shots would make great jigsaw puzzles.
That first photo is particularly stunning...but they are all so great! Keep em coming!
Rebecca said…
Just post what you love and that comes through - others will feel it too. No sense in forcing anything. I love seeing your big open spaces.
beutiful farm buildingsespecially inthe snow.
Kaya said…
Enjoy looking at your barns so much. Scenery is so beautiful.

Love the new look of your blog!
Karen S. said…
Just simply incredible views!
Carola Bartz said…
I love your Big Valley fences and views - I don't see myself tire of them anytime soon. Please keep them coming!
I don't mind the Big Valley series at all, I enjoy it very much. I just get tired of seeing snow in any picture, not just yours :)) Maybe you could show the spring, summer and fall and save the snowy ones for next winter :))
Or for the hot summer ;) :D
But anyway, keep posting them and in that time you can save up some fresh ones.
And I have trouble to decide which one I like most - I think I like them all :))
Have a beautiful day

I LOVE that first shot!

I think if you post things that are enjoyable for you your readers sense your passion and and return to see more.

Felicia, no need to worry about it getting old. It is not. I love your big valley shots. These images would do well as puzzles and also frame worthy. I am enjoying them immensely.

Such beautiful scenes, Felicia! You must be hitting a blogger's slump - we've all been through those! Sometimes you can get a new perspective by zeroing in on close up shots. Have a great weekend! xo Karen
I love your Big Valley scenes and your photography. I certainly never tire of them and would miss them if you took a break. But you gotta do what is right for you, girl. You might feel refreshed after a little break!!
Judging by all the above comments you already know the answer to your own question. You certainly have a huge store of cracking photos.

Many greetings,
Marco

I love your photography too! I like the seasonal comparisons.
John's Island said…
Enjoy all your photos but those comparison shots are special! Another excellent post ... thanks for sharing.
For myself, I'm quite happy to continue with the Big Valley, but so far I love all of your photos.

"How do you all keep your readers and commenters coming back?????"
By reading and commenting on their blog :-))

Just keep posting your pictures and try to catch some new ones so you have plenty waiting when this series is over :-D

I always enjoy visiting your blog Felicia because you take such great photos and share them. Barns, nature and rural scenes keep me coming back! I love the fall and winter shots of the first barn and that huge white barn is beautiful and looks like a calendar page. I hope you will continue sharing. :) Have a great weekend. Pam
Your photos have a lovely painterly feel to them. I hope you continue but sometimes even a very short break is revitalizing. :)
Helma said…
These photos are really beautiful.
Sometimes the best is difficult to foot engrave something else if you have limited time. Try to look in your garden or on your way to work or shop. A flower or plant can also always very nice to show.
Awesome barn shots- these are really pretty. And of course, the red one is my favorite.
Jaana Koo said…
Wonderful pictures, I like them really much :)))
Stewart M said…
I actually really like this series of shots - the landscape, climate and architecture are very different from what I see.

I don't know how to keep people visiting - I just publish pictures I like, and visitations seem like a bonus.

My goodness, that white barn photo with fence is amazing! All look like calendar pages.
Monika MW said…
Beautiful colors and imagines.
have a great weekend.
What Karen Sees said…
Your photography is always stunning, and enjoyed by all who regularly visit your blog! I think many photography bloggers share your dilemma. Life gets busy and often there is not enough time to keep a blog active with fresh content, and then comment on all your follower's blogs as well. I've seen too many wonderful photographers shut down their blogs because of time constraints. I realized many years ago that I had to take a different approach. I love photography, and I realized that my blog was first and foremost, a place for me to keep my personal photo journal...so I can look back and see what I was interested in shooting throughout the years. I print out my blog, usually on a yearly basis, and I love having this record. When my life has been hectic, there have been times when I go for months without posting or visiting fellow blogger's blogs, and I just have to be OK with that. I gave up the pressure of trying to keep up with it all, and I'm OK that I don't have tons of people who comment, (because commenting on each others' blogs is, and should be, reciprocal.) I just do what I can, and love to visit friend's blogs when I can find the time. But I have been so glad I've never permanently stopped posting because when I come back after I've been away for awhile, its like coming back to an old friend and I'm renewed and excited to get shooting and posting again. You may lose some followers along the way, but not many, and they'll be waiting if you need to take a breather. When I made the decision that my blog was for me and my memories first, (selfish me), and that I wasn't just trying to accumulate the most followers, I relaxed and stopped worrying about keeping on top of it all. (However, I realize this advise doesn't work for people who are trying to earn money with the blogs). Just thought I'd share my perspective...since you asked!
Just take your camera with you as you drive too and from work and post those lovely pictures and we'll keep coming back Felicia :O)
Felicia I love your photography and hope you continue to keep your blog going! I know it is hard when you work full time. I babysit all week and often I'm too tired in the evenings to do much online. I found that blogging once or twice a week is the most I can do right now. I don't get as many comments as I used to get when I lived in NYC, but that's OK. Do It because you enjoy it--no pressure!

I like the strong contrasts and lines in the last two images :)

Wonderful pictures, beautiful place, great beauty with snow and no snow!
