“A View from the Orchard”


Good morning,

I wanted to start off and wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day weekend.

On Tuesday we had a nice surprise snowstorm blow through the region. I’m sure not many people are as excited about snow as I am but as a photographer it does certainly help clean up and enhance the winters’ stark backdrop. Kelly, Zach and I ran around Lancaster County to capture some of the local flair.

There was something about this scene that screamed my name. I added a texture overlay to give the scene a more artistic feel.
