The Amish community is very well established in central Pennsylvania. The “horse & buggy” form of transportation is a common sight in the farmlands surrounding our more “urban” cities and towns. Amish people are not very keen about having their picture taken, so I am careful to avoid any shots that included their faces, out of respect (the horse was obviously exempted from this caution).

This photo was taken on March 5th, 2009 at 5: 30 PM, handheld with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L zoom lens at 70mm. The shutter speed was 1/1000th sec. at f/5.6. The camera’s ISO was set to 200. The image was slightly cropped, but is otherwise “untouched”.
The shot was captured along Upper Bartlow Road in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, USA just a few miles east of Clarkstown, PA. I was standing in a cornfield near the junction with Ridge Road.
