Beauty around us – Maple Ridge Photographer

Every single day or often multiple times I day I drive by fields.  Many of these fields are empty.  Many have some sort of farm or construction equipment in them.  But often these fields have horses in them.  One field in particular at the end of our road frequently has horses out in the pasture and without fail Mollie will ALWAYS ask if we can knock on the owners doors and see if we can ride them!  A few weeks ago I drove by the horse field after work and the lighting WAS GORGEOUS!  I went home and got my camera it was so gorgeous.  These are just two of the pics I took.

I am in awe that I live in such a beautiful place.  See we moved to Maple Ridge almost a year ago and I am still not quite used to the rural-ness of the area.  It probably should be mentioned that I live WAY WAY out in Maple Ridge.  In forest and farms.  I am not in the city AT ALL! We moved from Surrey – within walking distance to the Guildford Mall.  I grew up in Guildford and had been there for 30 years but it was time for a change so a big change it was! Go big or go home right???  Well I am VERY happy we live in the “country” now.  As Mollie said after we moved, “Mommy before we used to live in the city but now we live where we can hear the birds and see the stars”.  Nothing like hearing words like those to melt your heart and know you made a good choice.

  2. Beautiful beautiful images! I live in a big city and I have to say that it must be nice to live in a place where you can see the stars and hear the birds:)
