Amish farm in southern Minnesota

camera settings: f 5.6, 1/125, 400 ISO

Last month I flew back to my hometown of Rochester, Minnesota for a funeral and stayed for a couple days with my family. One rainy morning my brother-in-law mentioned that he was going to Lanesboro to pick up some furniture from an Amish farmer. I jumped at the chance to go. While I was wandering around the farm, a neighboring Amish man passed by with his horses. He actually smiled as I lifted my camera to grab the shot. I liked the way he seemed to emerge from the fog, and how the subdued colors made the scene look rather old and dated.

These two little boys were hanging around watching the family goats. They didn’t speak a lick of English, and seemed confused when I tried to talk with them.

Parting shot was an Amish woman riding past, head bent in the drizzle.

  • Adriano Axel - Great pictures, congratulations! 🙂 It’s very interesting to me to see places like this… I live in a big metropolitan area and it’s good to travel away once in a while, even if only by imagination…

  • Toursdesport - Wow great photos! I love how you used the elements in the photos very well. Great job.
