A Walk Around the Neighborhood


Rog and I are determined to get back in shape after the long couch-potato winter. The warmer,springlike days have been inviting for walking the big loop - about 3 miles. First, a few glimpses of the restored prairie to our south.

Then, a few shots of a few of the picturesque neighborhood farms - and sweet young heifers from the dairy farm across the road.

I LOVE the horizontal layers in your photos! Thanks for sharing your walk with us; I think the countryside is beautiful this time of year, laid bare, as it is.

Is the red in the pictures Dogwood?

Becky said...

Any little farms for sale near you! :) Just kidding... I know I couldn't handle that much cold. But gosh, what a beautiful area you live in!!

looks like a national geographic issue from 1972. did you do alter the color at all?

Thanks, it IS pretty around here. Makes my heart sing. The field of red is dogwood - a bit of dramatic color in the monochromatic winter.
Cadence, I didn't alter the colors; I was a bit surprised they photographed as vividly as they did.
