Mifflinburg (Union County) back roads

farm scenery, originally uploaded by Berks_Awhile.

To some, Mifflinburg, in Union Co, PA is merely a speed bump en-route to Penn State.  It wasn't that long ago when there was even a McDonald's or a Sheetz. The town itself is old, yet well preserved, with old buildings and traditional stores on the main street.

My favorite thing about it is the back roads where Amish buggies are common sight and picturesque farms and farmland can be seen in every direction.

This shot was captured right after sunrise in the morning magic hour. A cold night left a bit of frost on the remaining pumpkins.

Spontaneously choosing roads was fun and challenging. With subjects and lighting changing by the minute, this area definitely deserves future visits and different back road explorations.
