More Amish Country

Autumn is a busy time of year in the Amish community. These corn fields stand waiting to be harvested. Click on the photo to enlarge.
For the Amish, harvesting corn means making shocks and waiting for the ears of corn to dry before they are hauled to the barn, husked and fed to the livestock.

Beautiful shots from Amish country. Great color and light and beautiful rural scenes.

Great shot with the horse on the road and the well-tended fields in the background. The corn stored in shocks is probably not seen outside of Amish communities. I've never seen them except in pictures from times gone by.
Thanks for giving us some of the flavor of that unique way of life.

Ohio has beautiful farm country. I've never visited an Amish community but my great aunt and uncle (who lived in Ohio) used to go to Amish country to buy cheese.

I would love to spend some time with the Amish and do a photo study on them. I specially like the first pic.
