Country Roads Part 2


Here are some scenes from rural Barton and Dade Counties in Missouri. The top shot is near Lockwood, Missouri. I wasn't really paying attention to where I was when I stopped the car and shot the second shot.

I can't talk much today as I have to go in to work so I hope you all have a good Saturday.

Lovely rural photographs.

In looking back a few days I am particularly impressed with your photo of the kero lamp in the Truman house. Great story as well, I always love reading family history, it makes the past come alive.

Those are beautiful Mike, I love to fly over the US and look at the rural areas, when we start to come down, we see the fields or plantations, that is awesome.

Mike...

out toward Lockwood... there is a preservation area called the Coyne Prairie. Did a story on it with the MO Prairie Foundation... looks like you might have been close by.

Great for wildflowers, birds and more!

Nice.

Aww, I like how you captured the flowers dying. That actually turned out beautiful.

Hope your son enjoyed or is enjoying California. I did! It's lovely there.

Thanks for your lovely comments.

I like that top one, as a kid, those massive rolled hay bales intrigued me. I always wanted to see one made. I've had to bale hay, 90lb bales in 100+ degree weather, so these that are made and stay in the field always seemed to be the best option after throwing bales a few times.

I've seen many fields like this in my day, but don't see many farms in my Florida surroundings. There are many, but I don't see any in my usual routes around here.
