Optimized-Old Mill

This charming Old Mill is located in PEI, it was one of those times when I asked The Hubs to ‘PULL OVER!!’ and he had to slam on the brakes and turn around…ah, life with a woman who loves to take pictures!!

Have a wonderful Friday!

PS – Gus the Redtail hawk has a new name, thanks to Daniel, Joel, Morgan, Anonymous and Gabe..It’s Hawkley Aardvark Redtail Yuppie! Or Hary for short :)
Thanks for playing along guys!!

Lastnight, we were eating dinner and The Hubs spied this eagle on our front lawn! He was having his dinner too .. an old, dead raccoon from the ditch. I grabbed my camera and slipped on some shoes .. but forgot my coat, and within 10 minutes I was nearly frozen solid…but it was so worth it!!

He let me get within 8 feet of him, then he would bounce away, leaving his dirt trail. I knew when he’d had enough by screeching at me, so I decided that before he came pecking at my face, I would leave him be.

Love these spontaneous creature moments! What a gift!

Ashlyn and chewy

This week I am posting a picture of our darling Red. We were visiting a goat farm where I was to take pictures of some barn equipment and goat housing and the kids found the kids irresistible. Tee hee.

This goat and Ashlyn made fast friends and in true goaty fashion, he decided her lovely orange top would taste delicious :)

Have a wonderful weekend!!

So, I’ve strayed a little from my “real” photos, and am again posting a photo not based on quality this week. It’s more of a thought provoking piece.

I’d love to know if anyone has seen these signs before and WHY?!?

 

Have a wonderful Friday Y’all!!

Well here we are another week passed and another photo to post …

This one comes from last summer, The Hubs and I were driving along a back country road and I happened to spot this lovely farm from on top of the hill we were perched on. I love the rolling fields in the background and the freshly harvested wheat field in the foreground. The massive country garden in front of the barn makes me salivate.

I am yearning for summer.

I do believe I missed the last Foto Friday as we were away in ‘Poor Mans Florida’ …but here we are another week gone and another photo in the wings.

This photo is from a few years ago, when The Hubs and I were living on the dairy farm. It was a foggy day and the Jersey girls were on pasture and boy, did it make for a photographers dream moment.

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!

 

Foto Fridays on the Fifty..

Thought I’d start up a recurring theme here on the fifty, Foto Friday.

(Does it annoy you that I chose ‘foto’ rather than photo? heh. Well, it’s a throwback to my Oma who has heavy dutch accent, I can just picture her saying ‘ Oh vat a lovely foto!’ )

Heres a picture from our backyard on a windy, sunny day. These are our ‘hammock’ trees, planted in a triangle with hopes that one day we’ll be able to hang a couple hammocks from them :)

There is beauty in this harsh season, we just have to look a little harder to see it!
