Amish farm

Amish farm

Rt. 896 ~ Near Strasburg, Lancaster County
I've always admired this farm as I drive through Lancaster County.
Today's Challenge was the perfect time to pull over and shoot it! :)

Weekly Challenge: "Five Ways to Kick-Start your Photography".
Go back to basics with your photography and show us an image taken with the following limitations.

1. Fixed focal length - Either use a prime lens (preferably 50mm) or use a zoom lens at one end of the zoom.
2. 1 Roll Rule - Compose your image shot carefully, thinking out the composition, subject, focal point, perspective, framing, background, etc.
3. No Live Preview or Review - Everything should be composed through the viewfinder.
4. Manual focus - Use manual focus only.
5. One aperture - Use one aperture only. We have a tendency to shoot with lenses open too often. Try to limit yourself to f/5.6, f/8 or f/11.

I love the Amish farm scenery in Lancaster County ---- have many photos myself from past trips there. I'm fascinated, as well as deeply impressed, with their way of life. I feel certain they could teach us, the super champions of technology, a thing or two about a peaceful and meaningful life! Your image, Stephanie, tells the story!
