Country Living



I know I talk about simple country living quite a bit, but I had the opportunity to capture some really beautiful shots at a country house this weekend. I can't get enough of living miles from neighbors and gazing out the window at rows of green crops. This kind of serenity is great for nights filled with chirping grasshoppers and wind chimes blowing in the warm summer breeze. This house has everything you would imagine a country home would, right down to the white picket fence.

  16. What a beautiful place to live! That white fence with the arch of greenery is so inviting. I have to say I love all the country pictures you post. They remind me of Fresno and growing up. I never appreciated living in the country until I shared apartment walls with neighbors. There's definitely something to be said for the quiet, peaceful atmosphere in the country. Hope you had a nice weekend!
