Right Side Up and Upside Down

Last Saturday I woke up feeling a bit restless. I didn't feel like dancing with Mrs. Mop, so I loaded Fergus up in the car and headed north to see Daughter and those magnificent grands of mine.
About 10 minutes north of town, I saw this flooded field and the barn. Of course there was a car riding my bumper so I waited until I got to the next intersection, made a u-turn, drove back by the barn, made another u-turn, stopped in the middle of the road and took this picture...
...and this picture. As you can see the farmers have their corn planted before the rain, but the rain was a little too heavy. I suspect this farmer will need to replant part of this field. Hopefully it won't be too late by the time the ground dries.

Linking to Weekend Reflections and Skywatch Friday

Sorry about the flooded fields but it sure did set up some gorgeous reflection photos! I had to chuckle when you were talking about making a U-turn...I do this so many times myself!

Picture taking devotion! I'm always too impatient to turn around and take pictures when I'm driving somewhere.

A great reflection. Too bad about the flooding. With farming, if it's not one thing, it's another.

That is such a spectacular reflection! Don't you hate when someone is behind you when you want to stop and take a photo? I'm glad you made a couple of u-turns for this.:)

Andrea Priebe said...

Oh, you are a woman after my heart. Were you grumbling under your breath about the car on your tail. I get very frustrated ... but I do the same as you ... pull over or U-Turn, whatever it takes. And see, you were right ...it was well worth it :)

Your reflection shots are wonderful. Oh, the poor flooded field, and the even poorer farmer!

Excellent!!! What a gorgeous, wonderful photo of the pond and red barn!

EG CameraGirl said...

You chose such a beautiful day to visit your family! The puddle is pretty with the reflections but I hate to think the farmer's crop might need to be replanted.

Shirley said...

The photo was definitely worth the two u-turns! It's beautiful.

So much water, but after 2012's drought, I'll take it!

Rose said...

How have I missed this???? I love it. Well, now that I think...I was feeling real under the weather Friday...still not up to par Saturday...been stopping to visit a blog just every now and then.
