It is a beautiful Autumn morning in Montville, Ohio. Montville is an extremely rural area with many working farms, as well as a large Amish community.
The Amish typically pass down their land from one generation to the next, and it is not uncommon to see a family cemetery directly behind or next to their home.
While driving through this area, you will see horses pulling buggies, horses used for plowing fields, and laundry hanging on a line outside.
The streets are scattered with working farms and silos.
I love driving through this area. I love the simpleness of the lifestyle.
I stumbled across this beautiful barn while visiting a very old Amish cemetery. The backyard of this barn and farm house is the cemetery, separated only with an old split rail fence.

    knew it looked good, like the different spots of color throughout

  • And I even managed to get the hanging laundry in the picture too!
    I had to mess around with the lighting here, because if you recall, the light was coming from behind it, so the whole front of it was pretty shaded.
    This picture took me a LONG time to get to this point :-)
    I’m not sure why, but for some reason, it reminds me of something Thomas Kincaid would do. Maybe it’s the lighting and shadowing? hmmm
