The Amish are a group of traditionalist Christian church fellowships, who are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology. Travel by horse and buggy is the prominent mode of transportation, naturally limiting travel, and therefore, interaction with the non-Amish world. This also prevents the erosion of geographically-organized local church districts, because members cannot simply drive to the congregation of their choice.
I am used to seeing closed Amish buggies in the winter but this open one took me by surprise.
Amişler basit yaşam, sade elbise, ve modern teknolojinin birçok kolaylıklarını benimsemeye isteksizlikleriyle bilinen bir grup gelenekçi Hıristiyan kilisesi birlikleridir. Doğal olarak seyahatı ve bu nedenle Amiş olmayan dünya ile etkileşimi sınırlayıcı at arabası ile seyahat önemli bir ulaşım modudur. Üyeleri kendi seçtikleri cemaate kolayca süremedikleri için bu aynı zamanda, coğrafi düzenlenen yerel kilise bölgelerinden erozyonu önler.
Ben kışın kapalı Amiş arabaları görmeye alışkınım ama bu açık olan bir sürpriz oldu.

Well captured this scene on the road, well composed with the Fg and the car, interesting contrast with these colors in this snow covered landscape.

despite the grainy image I liked the graphic mood of the compo. in the miniature the colored signs looks more beautiful than in the real format. anyway a very nice image. if they try to avoid the modern world the plastic in their chariots should be avoid too. haha.

Fantastic reportage shot highlighting a strange community in the US. Strange but nice, I like the idea of this environment friendly travel. Like the partial desaturation effect (did you actually do it?) You have done well to leave the noise as it is, creates a wonderful old photo effect. Nicely done, thanks for sharing.

So dedicated to preserve their tradition, even in harsh weather condition, Murat.
Good choice to post, even when clarity is not at best, because this is really unique phenomenon to see.

A very interesting picture where the partial desaturation works well. Reminds of that film with Harrison Ford. Much better to sit inside a car here!

This is so good at capturing your subject. We have Mennonite communities in rural Ontario who travel about like this too - it's amazing. Your photo is wonderful - I really like the smeared windshield in the foreground, the person's hat and the distant headlights. It all creates a photo that captures a whole world.

We look like we are viewing an old movie with your treatment to this image.
The B@W adds to this with the two colours adding some mystery to this scene.
Through the window of the warm car, you are ok, but this guy must be freezing unless he is sitting on a Hot water bottle, he he!

Excellent winter photo, superb arrangement. I hope that you have stopped your car before taking this snapshot.
The use of selective colour is a real stand out. A nice photo with well-balanced composition and very good depth of field.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice rest of the week.

Old horse drawn buggie and good touch of modernity with the red triangular hazard sign, riding along the endless country road. A fine depiction of deep winter greyish snow scene with lovely specks of vivid colours to click the eyes, spot on compo, view point and great perspective too. The blurry fg adds the whole scene. Fine effort, Congrats. tfs

the scene you captured and your artistic treatment of it are very interesting. Your car kept you warm, gave you a great point of view and created a superb interaction between you and the Amish driver of the buggy. The simple hint of your vantage point has enhanced the story in your frame, the contrast between monochrome and colours is so effective. I also like the deep scenery ahead and the lights of the distant car. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
PS About the anchor, I'm curious too. I went to the spot where it was placed two days ago with a friend who had only seen it in my photos. We asked someone nearby who said that the anchor "was gone" and didn't know anything more. Haven't found anyone who knows about it yet and this isn't good.

You're capturing well this scene by effective selected color and good composition, so it's interesting and impressive to see Amish buggies the surrounding environment with wood and syrait rural road with ups and down. This looks like one mysterious/rare group in US for me, so it's interesting to know that they refuse many conveniences of modern technology and keeping the faith of simple life style without communicating the non-Amish world. In order to keep the lifestyle at the time of immigration, they are living a self-sufficient life the centering farming. It is assumed that it originates in the instruction of strict Christ to which they belong. I can not judge easily whether this lifestyle is good or bad. However, in the modern society which changes quickly for the state of the world and economic conditions, it seems to be difficult that they persist and keep in one belief, although the way of life is noble-minded.
