Many folks inquire about my cover shot.  They want to know where it is located and do I really live in the country.  So, I thought I’d share a bit about my country photos and where I live.

I live in Warren County, Ohio.  The county I live in is between Cincinnati and Dayton.  In fact, it’s one of the fastest growing counties in all of Ohio.  Most people around here, including me, work in either Cincinnati or Dayton and commute from home. The county is mostly rural with many farms and crops.  There are also quite a bit of horse farms in this area.

All of the photos below were taken on my drive to or from work.  I am on backroads the entire commute.  It is a lovely area in which to take a drive.  And, there are many photo opportunities.  Even though I am not from here, I have been here long enough to call it home.

  1. LOVE the second to last one. Would love to have a picnic there or take a book and read under the tree. Even better, go there to write. Pen and paper, the proper way to write.

  2. You are so lucky to have that sort of a commute to work. Do you leave early….just in case you have to stop two dozen times to get out and take pictures? 🙂

  3. hi, you are so blessed with beautiful vistas on your daily commute … i will never tire of such privilege! thank you for sharing and please continue to do so — April

  4. Hi Seth,
    Many Thanks for your blog visit. I am loving these tranquil scenes around your home area. I am loving the softness of your cover shot and the mailbox with the wildflowers. (Heart).
    Drop in anytime at my blog :).

  5. LOVE these shots! My grandmother lived in Burbank (Wayne County) and I would visit her every summer growing up. It looked a lot like this (I mean…a lot of Ohio), so getting a lil’ nostalgic! Love the third one, especially

  6. I can see why you get so many inquiries about your cover shot – it is so dang appealing! 😉 I’ve been browsing through your photos and the one that really speaks to me is actually on this post… has the sun setting on the dirt road. So peaceful! Keep the photos coming 🙂

  7. Your cover shot is stunning, as are your other photos! I grew up in the country, and you see some beautiful scenes if you get off of the main roads!

    • Yes, I agree. I live on the edge of suburbia. So, I am a close to a big city but very close to the country. I try to take backroads so I can see the farms because I too grew up in the country. (Tennessee)

  8. I was stationed at Wright-Pat near Dayton in the early 80s when I was active duty USAF. Being a California native, I did not make friends with the weather in Ohio but I loved the countryside (I lived in Fairborn), the fall colors (holy moly! we do not have trees out here where I live that do THAT) and how green it was in the summer. Oh, and fireflies. We don’t have those either.

    • Yes, there are many wonderful and beautiful things here in Ohio. Although, I have to say, my favorite city in the US is San Diego. So beautiful and the weather is perfect. Thanks for your comment.

      Oh and I love the Air Force museum at Wright-Pat.

  9. These are amazing! I love how you shot the corn, its a perfect mix between sky and corn! All of these are Wonderful!
    I’m in Ohio too! North of you, in Miami Co.

  10. Beautiful photos! I grew up on a farm in Iowa. I now live in Colorado and enjoy the splendor of the Colorado Rockies. I don’t think I fully appreciated the beauty of rural Iowa until after I moved away. Now when I go back to visit my Dad on his farm, I am really struck by the beauty of the rural landscape!
