    Thanks for posting these pictures Mark, it certainly seems like a very peaceful part of the country and evokes memories of "how it used to be"
    How big of an area did you cover in the workshop?

    Dave, I can confirm that it is peaceful, except for all the tourists. Those shots are from my extended back yard.

    I know what you mean about the tourists. We live about 90 minutes away from the mountains which this time of year is packed to brim with them LOL. I much prefer going out east where there are no mountains, no traffic, no people and lots to see, mainly because there is nothing in the way!!!!

    In the mid 70's I lived in Lancaster County. Beautiful area of the country. It was there that I bought my first 35mm camera, a Nikkormat FT2. It didn't seem to matter which direction you turned your head back then. It was like living inside a 360 degree picture.
    Thanks for taking me back to that time.
  6. Dave,

    We covered about 46 miles in a more or less elongated loop starting at Atglen and ending up near Paradise PA.
  7. My pleasure, but it was certainly no burden on my part. It is truly a very scenic part of Pennsylvania.

    Thanks Mark, I was just curious about much driving would have been involved as it looks like a really nice area to visit and photograph. Did you have any problem with the Amish people not wanting to be photographed?
    Thanks for sharing these, I know my partner (Sue) would be there in a shot LOL.
  9. Dave,

    The Amish frown upon personal photos where their faces can be recognised. The one shot I posted above of the rear of an Amish carriage that shows the face of a small child was not intentional. We were set up to photograph a covered bridge (also posted above) when the carriage came by. I turned to focus and shoot the carriage as it passed and was not expecting the rear flap to be open with the child looking out. Having said that it appears children can be an exception due to not yet being full members of their church (I.e., not yet baptized).
    What do Amish think about photography?

    Thank you for the reply Mark. I'll have a read at the article you have linked.

    Beautiful scenes. My wife and I were up there Autumn before last for a weekend conference at Petra Church in New Holland. The town was also having one of the ubiquitous Autumnfests many small towns have each September, so it was pretty busy. I thought the scenery was beautiful, although I live in and prefer more hilly terrain.

    I have checked out the page on the link and it pretty much confirms what I thought/have heard and reading the comments on there it lead me onto Doyle Yoder's website which has some great pictures of the Amish communities in Ohio. Thanks for sharing the link.
    Being from the UK originally I find the "community" thing very fascinating as we have mainly Hutterites and Mennonites around this part of Alberta.

    Reminds me of Holmes County Ohio. Particularly the landscapes.
