Visit to an artist's home in the country

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Pa, Oct 3, 2008.

  1. Yesterday my wife's hiking group was invited to walk the trails on the property of a local artist who lives near the New River. It was a beautiful day, so I elected to go along.

    The house itself is an interesting design built in modular form.

    NIKON D200    ---    48mm    f/8.0    1/160s    ISO 200

    NIKON D200    ---    18mm    f/8.0    1/15s    ISO 200

    She has lavished much attention on her gardens; apparently she doesn't have the wild deer problem that we have :rolleyes: 

    NIKON D200    ---    18mm    f/8.0    1/80s    ISO 200

    The view from the front lawn is beautiful.

    NIKON D200    ---    18mm    f/8.0    1/160s    ISO 200

    The walk through the trails leads through a old barn which serves as the artist's workshop.

    NIKON D200    ---    26mm    f/5.6    1/250s    ISO 200

    The trails leads through a high meadow with spectacular views to the river.

    NIKON D200    ---    18mm    f/8.0    1/60s    ISO 200

    NIKON D200    ---    45mm    f/5.6    1/200s    ISO 200

    Eventually the trail winds through a forest down to the river bank, providing close up views of the impressive limestone cliiffs

    NIKON D200    ---    35mm    f/8.0    1/160s    ISO 200

    NIKON D200    ---    38mm    f/8.0    1/125s    ISO 200

    The trail through the forest is studded with surprising artistic creations perched on rocks or decorating trees. It was too dark in the forest yesterday to photograph these without a tripod, but I plan to go back soon better equipped.

    Thanks for looking. Hope you enjoyed!
