When I started Amish Road Show the idea was that I would be traveling the roads of Lancaster County and share what I discover. While a lot has changed about the process that is still how I capture a lot of images. Just by going for a drive to see what pops up. Here are a few recent photos captured during my travels.

Cows along Leacock Road, New Holland, Pa.

Yesterday I was following my step-dad to the garage. He isn't accustomed to my sporadic stopping in the road. I noticed he kept going, but the stopped around the corner haha. Anyway, the cows above are what prompted stopping. Leacock Road comes to a T at this field and these cows were coming strait towards me to head back to their barns. Any other time it would likely be there butts pointed my direction, so I took the opportunity to stop and admire the scene. Click, click ...

 

Whoa fred, look at that one!! An Alpaca takes notice of a passing horse and buggy in Ronks, PA. 

Above is another example of some roadside serendipity. The family and I were out for a drive and went looking for some animals. We happened across this Alpaca farm in Ronks and pulled over for a few pictures. Just as we were about to leave I heard the clippity clop of a horse and buggy coming up the road. Snap, snap ...

Sunset reflecting in the puddles on Saw Mill Rd. near Farmersville

For my photography friends, puddles are another roadside favorite of mine. I love going out after it rains to see what kind of puddles are laying around. I've captured a few nice sunset reflections this way. The thing is, if it's been dry, most puddles begin to dry up immediately. Like within an hour. Mostly because our roads and paved surface aren't supposed to collect puddles. They're supposed to drain off, but hey stuff happens and roads get old. The point being that the sooner you can get out after the rain the better. There will still be puddles here and there for hours or days, but the sooner you get out the more potential shots are available. Snap snap ...

 

Farm fresh pumpkns at sunrise along Amsterdam road near New Holland.

Finally, everyone should make a point to get out for Sunrise once in awhile. Not like, on your way to work. No I mean like out for a stroll, ride, or drive with a cup of coffee and no destination. It wasn't until I began taking my photography seriously that I truly began to appreciate sunrise. It's a very beautiful time day and a great sunrise can be a great start to your day. Plus you can find awesome deals on Pumpkins apparently. First pick, click click ...
