Love of the Land


In this post I am highlighting some farmland scenes from Lancaster, PA. For as long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed taking a drive in the country just to look at the scenery. I got this from my Dad, a country boy, I’m sure. Every once in a while we’d hop in the car to take a drive out to the country. He and I share the excitement of seeing what’s around the next corner and this ties in nicely with my love for landscape photography. Lancaster is an excellent place to enjoy the scenery with all its quaint Amish farmland and country charm. Below are some images from my trip with a friend last month. We spent much of our time in Lancaster at the Strasburg Railroad and the Pennsylvania Train Museum. Stayed tuned for those images in my next post.

    Hey ‘D’… very nice set of pics. This is yet another place I have not visited. Such a sheltered life 🙂 My favs are the “Hanging Out” and “Friendly Wave”. How did you get him to wave? Most Amish turn away … unusual, but great catch!

    Heh! You make me laugh — ‘sheltered life’ — ‘Mr. Travel The Continent’! He waved on his own — or maybe cause I smiled and nodded? I think the Amish are getting used to us photogs.

  3. Terrific photos. The image “Staying in the Lines” is just outstanding. Great capture. I need to get down that way to capture the way life is in that part of PA.

  4. Nice work! Loved the inset of the wave. Enjoyed your commentary. Anxious to see your railroad images. Happy 4th.

    Great pics Denise. I like “Hangin Out At The Barn”. My brother is a Lancaster fan making many trips out there every year. We caught up with him in May and loved the area including the Shady Maple. Lots of food!!
