Share the Road/ My World

Even during winter in MY WORLD you sometimes get caught behind slow moving hay wagons. (This photo was taken through a dirty windshield so a bit blurry. Sorry.)

But yesterday (Sunday) I had no worries about having to move at a turtle's pace. I wasn't in a hurry. Warm temperatures, wind and rain had vanquished the old, dirty snow...most of it anyway. And for a couple of hours blue skies overhead were graced with puffy white clouds.

This farmer took the opportunity to pick up some hay bales off his fields and I, well, "coerced" my dear husband into taking me on a photo journey.

A common sign in these here parts

I love these types of rural pics that you are so good at!

Strangely this could be my world. Traffic comes to stand still here when we are behind one of these, but who cares as we say here there's time enough.

Something neat about the composition: the orange triangle and the octagonal red stop sign. And everything else looks natural, even the truck. Especially the hay.

EG: What a neat look at the big wagon. That certainly would slow you down.

Great shots and interesting post.

Lucky for you you don't live in Amish country! If you think those trucks move slow, try getting caught behind a mule team sometime!

Reader Wil said...

I like that sign. We haven't got one like that. It's more a request than an order. Have a great new year!

Nice pic and love the sign. Happy New Year!

I could use that load of hay here too although it is early summer, our grass is browned off and our cattle need hand feeding.
Nice for you to take a leasurely drive for photo shooting.
Have a Happy New Year!

We have the same things here in the country. Lots of the big hay bales, and tractors everywhere. I wouldn't change it for anything!

Too funny, that one bale looks like it is getting ready to fall off.
Great post.
Happy New Year

We can stuck behind trailers like this on our narrow roads as well but we don't have signs like that. I just love it, ours are quite boring this one seems fun. Thanks for sharing your world with us.

Nice captured! Best wishes for the New Year!

Rose said...

Nice shot--I really like it. Just something about it makes me feel like I am sitting right there with you.

Ruth said...

Wow...that doesn't look like winter in your area. It won't last long. Lovely photo.

Looks like a beautiful warm day to share the road.

Jedediah said...

Love the sign, my friend got me into taking pictures of weird/cute(interesting signs and this is certainly one.

We have to share the road, but mostly with logging trucks. In that case it is better to speed up or get out of the way, LOL. -- Margy
