A drive-by...maybe I should say a Slow down real slow drive-by. I got this near the end of February. Believe it or not it is the best so far. I have been trying to get one for about 7 or 8 months. I know it is coming, by the surrounding area...a brown barn sits across the way from it. But from the road, you come around a small curve...not a bad one...but still you come around and right there they are and then they are gone. But I smile every time I see them. There is a sign that sits in front that says 'Minion Manor.'
We managed to wander down to Goose Pond on this past Friday....I was hoping to see some something. Two or three roads we wanted to go down were covered by water. We did see a few ducks, and several hawks...and I was about to give up and head home and Lo and behold, I spotted these. They were so far away I could not tell what they were.
I walked down till I was opposite them...I was still a distance away...though these photos are not the best, I am also amazed they are as good as they are. The wind was off and iceberg and strong enough to cut right through a person. If I had had an umbrella I could have become Mary Poppins. So was luck that they are not terrible blurry just from the wind factor alone.
I did not remember this barn...there is one other barn that I know of that is always this 'knock your eyes out' red color. I would like to find this one again and see if it is still this brilliant red. The one near here always remain the same bright color red.
This is not the greatest photo, but it sure feels like spring. Taken in April of 2010. Look how fresh and green that grass is! If you will notice in the distance, the trees are just beginning to turn green.
