SHAKER VILLAGE PHOTOS 1



We returned yesterday afternoon - still lots of sunshine and beautiful scenery although our trees are more beautiful right now than the trees down at Shaker Village - another week of two and they will all be in their glory. Had a wonderful trip - short and sweet.





I won't bore you with all the photos I took, but share some that show the village and different aspects of the place.









































It's a photographer's haven with potential photos around every corner and they lay out different things inside the buildings, depending on the time of year. This is the autumn harvest time so lots of dried foods, pumpkins, apples, potatoes, corn shucks, etc. around.


















If you love animals, there are sheep, horses, goats, steer, cows, lots of cats running around, squirrels and red-bellied woodpeckers sharing the trees, and burros in the barn.

It's raining here today...supposed to rain for the next few so I'll be in sorting more photos and maybe choosing some to work with for paintings later...

It was a wonderful trip, Deb, short and sweet with great weather the whole time. So unlike the last time we were there - in a bitterly cold January!

Good photos Rhonda, many I'm sure would make good painting refs - like the shadowed doorway.

Thanks, Nick. Are you rested from your travels?

Deb Léger said...

I see lots of paintings in your pics, Rhonda!!! Beautiful place.

Thanks, Deb. It is wonderful, especially in the fall...and maybe the spring when the orchard is in bloom.
