A Sunday Drive

Donna and I decided to take our cameras and go for a Sunday drive today. There was no plan, just that we'd head north and west out of Westminster, and see where that landed us. We made a few turns in the wrong direction, and ended wandering through the countryside in northern Carroll County, and up into Pennsylvania, including a really nice wander through Codorus State Park. It's been decades since I've been there, and, though I vaguely remembered that it was a nice place, I'd forgotten just how nice it is. Just outside the park is St. Paul's Dubs Union Church, which has a fairly ancient cemetery attached, and we stopped there to take some pictures as well.

The graves in the cemetery date back into the 1800's, and I was surprised that several of the stones had been replaced relatively recently. Despite the grave being well over a hundred years old, it's still tended and cared for by family members. There were flags and flowers placed at a number of the ancient headstones.

For the photogeeks out there, all of the images were made with the Fujifilm X-E1 and XF 18-55mm lens. Each image was then processed in Lightroom 5.4 and finished in OnOne Perfect Effects 8.
