Default A weekend in Landenberg, PA

Hi All,

Spent the weekend at a college reunion in Landenberg, PA. All I can say is that this region is simply beautiful. Rich in history, lots of photo opps and the weather was perfect.

Took the E-30 with me, along with the 12-60 SWD and the 50-200mm lens+EC14 Telecon.

White Clay Creek, E-30 + 12-60mmSWD



The house next door. Built by the home owner which took him 7years




The fields at sunrise:




E-30 + 50-200mm ED + EC14 telecon

Very nice Zig. I like the farm and field shot. Reminds me of where I grew up and notice the telephone poles. You don't see a lot of them around anymore, everything is underground. Nice shots

Brings back memories. I lived near there a long time ago and it's a wonderful area. Longwood Gardens and the Hagley Museum that preserves the DuPont family's original gunpowder mills were my favorites. The powder mills were on the river and were in buildings that had 3 sides - the side facing the river was open so an explosion would blast out over the water and not affect the other powder mills. This was before OSHA.

A wonderful, peaceful looking place. Perfect weather too, huh....

I noticed day before yesterday the high in Amarillo was 111, and that was not even the high in that area. Childress, Texas to the east reached 117. I shudder to think what the temps were in Palo Duro Canyon.

Hi All,

thanks for the comments. Great place to visit.

Ted,

We had a chance to go to winterther on Saturday. The place, was stunning. As close to american royalty as I've ever seen.

By the way, if anyone wants to take a look at the interior of the stonehouse, you can see it here:

Yeah, I found it a little overwhelming. You're right that the DuPont family had (and has) a heck of a lot of money. But I feel they deserved it. If they didn't make the gunpowder, we wouldn't have been able to win the War of 1812 (the other brands of gunpowder were very inferior). We, at least in part, owe our freedom (or what's left of it) to the DuPonts.
