Manchester Farms, Lexington, Kentucky

What a difference a season makes! This is Manchester Farms, snow covered, and looking a little bit cold, I might add. If you want to see this horse farm in all its beauty in the summer just take a peek at the image on my header. Like I said, what a difference a season makes. I tried to put some color in the photo, but honestly, there's not a lot of color there to work with. I took this photo while driving the scenic byway a few weeks ago the weekend after we had had about 4-5 inches of snow. It was still 20 degrees outside so needless to say, I took these images quickly. Really quickly. Brrrrrr! And just a quick side note, if you look closely, you'll notice one of the spires on the top of the barn isn't sitting upright, but is slightly bent. As I drove along the route, at some points, the spire was "reallly" bent over. So I tried my best to stop along the road where it was least noticeable. No doubt the horse farm will repair this spire, hopefully before the big day arrives this spring, "that's Derby Day" for those of you who don't know what I'm referring to. Enjoy!


  1. What a wonderful wintry composition. I like the blue light - it's what I notice when I venture out in the late afternoon here in CO - I love the icy look of it.

  2. Awesome image! Definitely worth freezing your butt off. The composition is great and the use of lines to lead you to your subject is fantastic. Definitely worth putting it up on ur wall. Have you tried it in B&W? And bringing up the whites for some contrast in the B&W. Truely well done.
