Daily Farm Photo: 8/12/06


Waking Up The Farm

I took this photo a while ago, immediately fell in love with it, decided it was too dark, and relegated it to my personal file. I came across it yesterday and fell in love with it all over again. When I first started this blog, I found myself hesitating over certain photos, wondering if they were good enough to post. I also found that the ones in question usually ended up being quite popular. So I promised myself I would always listen to my heart, go with my first impulse, and the heck with everything else. But once in a while I forget about that promise. So here, finally, is this photo--because I love it. And that is that.

  6. I love this one -- and the recent one with the last ounce of sunlight lanketing the farm before sleep. My father lived in Missouri for 15 years before his death; your photos remind me of why he loved it there.

  12. Almost heaven! I remember mornings as beautiful as this one when I used to visit friends in the Gainsville, Mo. area. Also, born and raised a city girl, I never "really" saw the Milky Way until looking at the stars at night from the darkened fields there.
