fresh snow



This is the same farm where we watched corn being loaded into a truck for transport to the grain elevator.

The farmhouse and outbuildings cozy up to the side of a hill. The crops have all been harvested and a fresh dusting of snow makes everything look fresh and clean.

It's unclear what I shall find to photograph in the next few months. Daylight is just breaking on my short drive to work, but it's pitch black when I leave. Grey winter skies do not make for good shooting conditions. So we shall see how disciplined I can be about grabbing enough shots on the weekends to fill in during the week. Perhaps I'll resort to trolling the archives of unpublished photos buried deep in my computer.

It is so beautiful, looks like it could be used on a lovely Christmas card.

Ah yes, I'll have to post the photo I used for last years Christmas card - the poor barn is now gone to make way for an "adult-community-with-golf-course". But it did make a lovely card. Sigh.

It's picture perfect! I keep thinking I need to grab my camera in the mornings - and then the brain leavese me. lol

So much on 126 out to Yorkville is being gobbled up by new developments. Just in the year I've been going out there regularly - so much has changed.
