Favorite Photo Friday - country road


I have a propensity for getting lost when I'm driving out in the country.
Not sure why.


Grace has kind of become my 'guinea pig' as far as trying out new locations for clients.
It's fun because I end up with lots of pictures of her and though
some times things don't turn out the way I thought they might.
I find that's usually okay...


 Tuesday night I thought I remembered a cool old barn next to a stone building on a certain road.
Of course I hadn't written down the name of the road they were on.

We did find a dirt road next to a yellow soybean field.
With beautiful light.
No barn or stone building, but Grace got to pick 'fuzzies'
as she calls them.

And we both got to take in the quiet of an early Fall evening.

(Those fuzzies came home with us and now reside on the kitchen counter in a little vase.)

These are amazing photos. I especially love the second one, the sun feels so 'real', I have to actually squint to look at it. Amazing.

OH WOW.... the light is incredible!! Love these Gail....and how fun for you and Grace to check out all of these locations! She looked like she enjoyed picking fuzzies:)

Happy Weekend to you~

Gorgeous.... LOVE the sunflare! I agree with j-chin, it makes me squint looking at it.

I think you're inspiring me to find some new locations other for future shots. Even though our landform (social studies homework has kicked in big time over here) is quite different, I think I can find some neat urban backgrounds around here. ;-)

Hope you have a fabulous weekend Gail!

Gail, BEAUTIFUL!! I miss the soy bean fields in Indiana. my dads farm is surrounded by beans and corn! How do you make the colors so vibrant?

Jboo said...

Oh wow -- so beautiful -- your sweet girl and the surroundings! My problem with getting lost would be that I wouldn't find my way home again! :)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

nice pictures!! The huge bonus here is spending time with your sweetie! Moments you'll always remember, especially now that you've captured them.
I think our Jadyn would love picking fuzzies with Grace.
