Springtime on a Country Road

I did so much whining about the cold during winter, that I figured I should try to give equal time singing the praises of spring.  I’m also trying to capture my beautiful country road in photos in all four seasons, and today was the most gorgeous day to take photos.  The weather was absolutely perfect, the birds were chirping, and on a day like this, all seems completely right with the world.

This image is available as a printable without my watermark HERE.

The leaves have budded out on the trees, and look like they’ll be fully open soon.  I love the hay bales in the distance, and am glad the farmer didn’t end up needing them  The bales are sitting at the end of the drive that leads up to the beautiful old barn I’ve shared with you as a printable HERE.

I tried to play around with my camera and wanted to take a photo of the flowers (weeds) on the side of the road in focus, with the road in the background out of focus, but I got the background a little too blurry.  I’ll need to experiment with my settings and try again soon.

I also photographed my road in the autumn (HERE), and those photos are some of my favorites.  When my in-laws were visiting for Thanksgiving, we got our first snowfall of the season, and I shot their Christmas card photos on the road, but I forgot to take a photo of the road by itself, and I’m kicking myself now, because the snow was fairly undisturbed and looked to peaceful and pretty.   My computer crashed that had their Christmas photo on it, but here’s a scan of the photo from their card.  See what a lovely photo of the road it would have been?

I’m not wishing for winter to come back any time soon, so I’ll just patiently wait for next winter to get that shot.

  9. Beautiful photos! Loving the spring! Your in laws look adorable! Enjoy the beautiful weather! In the middle of painting the new coop on our farm! Yeeehaaaaw! The babies are ready to bust out of their tub! Their ready for the coop! One week to go! Take care,Cindy love your blog!

  10. Spring there is a little ahead of us, here in Michigan, altho’ we’ve had several days in a row of really warm, sunny weather, but now we’re in for a week of grey skies, lower temps and rain. But my row of daffodils along my driveway have bloomed as a result of the warm days and that is my sign that Spring is here.

    You are a good photographer, Angie. You have a great eye for composition. Regarding the image of the flowers w/the road behind, just set your f-stop at a higher number to increase your depth-of-field a bit. Try two or three f-stops above what you first used to get your desired result. Remember, the smaller your aperture or higher numbered f-stop, the more of your image will be in focus and vice versa. Hope that helps. Keep shooting!
