Think Back Thursday: Landscapes


Maryland might not come to mind when listing states with great scenery.  Understandable.  I wouldn't have thought so either before we started considering our move here.  I've come to really love the views  though.  Those right outside my door, and many that are a little further away, but still in my adopted home state.  I started looking through photos and realized that over the last couple of years alone, I have quite a collection of landscape pictures taken from our property or within about a mile from our house.  My first plan for this week's Think Back Thursday was to share landscape pictures from all over Maryland, but decided to stick with just the truly local ones.

These first two pictures were taken just down the road from our house in April 2011, right after heavy rains had caused flooding that close most of the local roads.


This was what our backyard (and beyond) looked like that spring.

Just down our road a little way...

Maryland's scenery is a little different from the majestic mountains and vast prairies where I grew up, but as I've come to consider it home, I've also come to appreciate the beauty here.


What kind of scenery is right outside your door?  Do you appreciate it, or do you tend to take it for granted?

thanks, Debbie! It was eye-opening to look for landscape pictures and realize that I had so many beautiful scenes from right here! Reminded me how blessed I am to live here.
