While this picture is an old photo, it helps put me in the mood for Christmas. I absolutely love the lights this time of year. Everything is lit up so beautifully, especially when people use white lights. These lights were draped along our old fence line and they happened to be snow covered when I took the photo. They made for a perfect winter scene.
One of those days that warrants a 4 hour country cruise with the windows down and no destination.
I’ve shot this particular place before but today the sun highlighted the fence just right, giving beautiful color to all that was enclosed.
I enjoy moments like these.
I happened upon this lone silo today and stopped to get a shot. And then I noticed the all the beautiful daylilies growing along the side of the fence. There were so many you couldn’t even see the fence. I absolutely love these flowers. They grow and bloom all over country roads throughout Indiana. And they are always orange (which happens to be my favorite color.) They are pretty enough to have their own picture but paired with a silo, I think it makes for a beautiful scene.
A single, lone post. Old, worn, wrapped in rusted barbed wire. A remnant of a fence long decayed and lost. And growing up all around it, new, orange, wild day lilies. It was a pretty scene. It demanded my attention. Happened upon by complete accident. A little beauty to brighten up the day.
A quick shot out of the window of my speeding car, as it flew down S.R. 39. I’ve driven this road a million times. Always headed towards Danville. It can be a long drive from wherever I’m staying and it can be boring, but it’s always worth it when I reach the destination and the person that’s waiting for me at the end. Tonight Hannah drove though, and I got to be a passenger for once. So I got to shoot and scenes that I had seen a million times became interesting. Like this fence line that is along the county line between Boone and Hendricks.
