Scenes in my neighborhood

Here's a few photos I took on Saturday.  Some I took on my way to work.  It was one of my favorite kinds of mornings, cool, with a little mist floating around!  The others I took on my way home.  These are all taken within 5 minutes of my house.

This is on the corner of our street.

 This field looked so interesting, with mist floating on the ground, and a heavy cloud of fog above it.


 A little further down the road is this barn, looking even better than usual in the misty sunrise.







 I love seeing the hay cut and laying in rows to dry.


I turned the corner toward the rising sun and came upon this golden scene.


And here's a few on my way home:
 Gravel roads leading into a thicket of trees look so pretty!




Almost home now.  I think this old truck has a certain type of charm out in the field!


I have to add a photo from Sunday morning too.

 I saw these two near the road as I drove in to work.  They barely moved when I pulled over, rolled the window down and took their picture.  What a nice start to the day!


Hope you enjoyed this drive around my neighborhood!

I truly did enjoy it. You live in a place that to me seems near-idyllic. The country feel of it is so gorgeous as are your photos. The deer -- just precious. xoxo

Your Sunday photo is so "dear"!!! What a wonderful, quiet, beautiful moment in the day. For you, AND for us.

Those misty photos are just perfect. In every way. I LOVE those kinds of mornings.

How pretty Mari...and it looks so cool as well. ( Can you tell we are sweltering here in NoAla?) My niece and her husband were just up at Mackinaw Island and she was telling everyone how deliciously cool it was there! Thanks for sharing with us!!

Yes, I enjoyed the drive. You live in a beautiful area and certainly have an eye for photography.

Those are all so pretty! I'm sure the deer were just thinking, "Oh, it's just Mari taking pictures again..." :)

I love the misty shots, very atmospheric! We have deer in our back garden but they aren't as relaxed as your friendly deer I have to say. You did well to get a shot so close.

Patsy said...

Love the old barn, you do have a lovely trip to work and back.

Terri D said...

Your 'neighborhood' is absolutely beautiful.

Judy said...

Very nice series of photos. I especially love the fog ones, it looks very much like the foggy days we can get here.

Cherdecor said...

Oh, I love those pictures! Those kind of mornings are quiet and peaceful. Love the deer also. Can hardly believe they stand still for your photo shoot. The deer must be more domesticated in MI. Beautiful shots!
