Drive by eye candy

As we travel the same road to work everyday, do you see any thing that changes? 

Everyday is a new day and each one is different just as the scenery!  

 

Island Farm on Roanoke Island -  http://www.theislandfarm.com

I love to slow down as I pass the Island Farm each morning.  The light in the morning gives the farm a warm country feeling as the sheep are grazing and the horses are trotting along the fence...what are they thinking about  I ask out loud! 

 

The afternoon drive by is much different than the morning drive by!  The lighting is completely different and in the late afternoon the animals are being lazy just hanging near their feeding bins!  Time to feed then get tucked in for the evening rest.  

 

 

I stopped this week to capture the dogwoods in bloom.  The afternoon proved to be a great shot as the sun was setting, it stroke the barn and highlighted the dogwood!  So cool to see the main subject full of light!

Last year I watched the blooms and never got a chance to stop and photograph the farms change of color.  

 

The Island Farm is very special to me as I learned a few years ago that the farm belonged to my ancestors on my Dad's Mothers side of the family, the Etheridge Family.  

What a feeling to walk the same land as they did over 150 years ago.                                                                    

The old house has been restored and you are able to walk around to see how they lived long ago.

What a special treat to share with my children and grandchildren!

 

 

They are opening for the summer season on April 4th so if you get a chance, please stop and visit the Island Farm.
