Paris Farm

Leap day. It arrives most years that are divisible by four and provides us with one extra day to do something special. Today, I balanced work with a few hours at the barn with my horse, riding and caring for him. The unseasonably warm afternoon provided a wonderful glimpse of spring in Virginia. The daffodils are already blooming, and the early spring crops are emerging and will eventually nudge the dull browns of winter out of the way.

No, I didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary on leap day 2012, but simply spending time doing what I enjoyed—including some scenic photography—made it a memorable day.

    Today’s picture is an interesting contrast in shapes, colors and textures. While looking at it, I thought how interesting it would be to see the exact same shot taken every month and be able to compare the changes. Even the sky, clouds and colors would be so different…or may not.

    • I felt the same way. I love this field. Sometimes it’s planted in wheat and sometimes soybeans. But the greens and browns make a great combination. I’ll try and shoot this scene later in the season, too. The tree in the field is one of my favorites, as well.
