Alberta Barn

Alberta Barn

Alberta Barn

The barns in Alberta are quite different than here in Ontario. They are generally smaller and the boards run horizontal as opposed to vertically here in Ontario.

We found this abandoned barn east of Edmonton. With the sun shining on it’s face and the windmill in the background I could just imagine a time when a farm family called this property home.


Modern Machinery

What was once Modern Machinery now sits as an ornament at the end of a farm lane in the shadow of a modern windmill.

Tractor Retirement

After a life of pulling and pushing and getting banged about this old tractor has retired to a field of wildflowers

We went on a road trip last week and I found this old tractor west of Buffalo N.Y. on the south shore of Lake Erie


Harvest Time

Harvest Time

We were driving through the countryside the other day and I was transported back in time to when I was a teenager working on the neighbor’s farm stooking wheat.

I just had to stop to take a picture of this age old method of Harvest time.

I finally got out shooting today. Went for a walk along the tail between St. Jacobs and Conestogo. The afternoon started out rather grey but ended up with a beautiful sunset.

Raking Hay

Raking Hay

The St. Jacobs area is well known as a Mennonite community. As I was driving out of town the other day I saw this young lad raking the hay so I had to grab a shot.

Found this skull hanging in a feed shed on the farm. Makes you wonder what the story is behind it.

As the saying goes – He has a face only a Mother could love! This turkey was massive. Glad he was in a pen because he seemed rather aggressive.

I haven’t been posting as often as I would like to this past week. I am getting a collection of images together for a couple of shows in November. Stay tuned for more info on the time and place!
I took this shot a couple of weeks ago just outside of St. Jacobs on the Three Bridges Road.

And They’re Off

Running Horses

And They’re Off

Last week we were out at another horse farm getting more shots of horses on the run. There is nothing quite like standing out in a field with these beautiful animals.


A Tree – Out standing in it’s field.

Tree in a field

A Tree outstanding in it's field.

After taking pictures of the horses the other night we were standing around talking before leaving to go home. We all spotted this tree standing all alone in the field across the road. It was starting to get dark and the others had to leave so I grabbed my tripod and took a few shots of this wonderfully shaped tree. I still wonder why you see loan trees growing all by themselves in farm fields. If there is and actual reason let me know!

This rural sunset is another shot near the village of Hawkeville taken last fall. The sun had just dipped below the horizon painting the sky with beautiful palette of colour.
