.country roads.

Today I went for a drive.

You ever have those days where you just feel like getting in the car and driving?


That day was today for me.  Plus it had been a while since I'd used my camera, and I was feeling a little camera happy.  I didn't really care if I got any good pictures, I just wanted to snap some shots.  I love looking at the world through a camera lens.  I see it in a whole new way.

So I jumped in the car, ran by the post office, made a quick stop at Sonic for happy hour, as you do, and hit the road.
......................................................................................
I love driving out in the country.  Wide open spaces, good music, big sunglasses, and sunshine.  It was perfect.

The shadows.
The sunlight.
The blue sky.

The texture.

I like it all.

Old red shacks.
 Big, fluffy clouds.
Contrast.
 Country roads.
Bright blue skies.

Green roofs.
......................................................................................
This is my favorite time of day.  Late afternoon when the sun has started it's journey to the horizon.  I love all the contrast and shadows the light creates.  

My favorite part is that warm golden glow that casts itself across the ground.  
It makes my heart happy.

p.s. Here's a little something extra for your weekend.  You're welcome.
