We were out the door by 6:45 this morning, headed for Amish country and a grocery run. I brought the camera just in case I saw something interesting and as soon as we got on the outskirts of Lancaster County it was quite obvious that it was a banner day for buggies.
Horses and buggies are a common sight in these parts and this morning they were all we saw on the roads. It’s always best to get out early in the morning before the English (as we are called) hit the roads in full force.
The morning was cold but the sun promises warmth later this day. You can still see some of the snow that remains from the storms that hit this area about a month ago.
Roller skates are a popular mode of transportation for young people in Amish country. Scooters and bicycles are widely used as well.
It’s beginning to be a beautiful morning and the sun feels so warm and good through the windows of our car.
All of these shots were taken through the car windows with the exception of the first one.
And on our way home, we noticed that every single farm that we passed had their laundry hanging out. It wasn’t quite 9 when I shot the photo above.
All of these pictures were processed in Photoshop using free actions from Pioneer Woman. I used the same for each, vintage at 50-60% opacity, then flatten, followed by fresh & colorful at 80-100% opacity. Photos taken with my Nikon D80 and either this lens or the Quantaray 70-300mm.
Have a beautiful weekend, all. I’m headed outside.
