A Mennonite checks her mailbox in the heart of the farmland.
A fabulous image with an antique feel.

I think this also works nicely with a panoramic crop putting more emphasis on the figure and also the interesting traditional farming practise going on behind her. A little window into a largely lost world.

@grouser: Thanks mister g, and yes absolutely an alternate approach like that would carry a different and valuable impact. In fact I took three frames as we drove past and have one exactly as you describe. I went with this bit of modern day roadside in the frame to juxtapose their "old world" ways with contemporary times. Maybe I'll post that other panoramic treatment in future :-)
Ooh love drive bys....and that blue is so pure.

I marvel at the old ways and the mix of old and new we sometimes see among these folks. Interesting farming going on there.

fine shot. love the wide open fields surrounding the traditionally clad young womsan And capturing her going about her life is so much more interesting than a static pose, very nice.
