The photographer: Sara Winger of Davis

Behind the lens: On a recent trip east we took some time to drive to the Berlin, Ohio, an area where there is a large population of Amish. The countryside was beautiful with gentle, rolling hills and picturesque farms dotting the landscape. It was a drizzly day and there was a sense of peacefulness in the air. This scene of one of the Amish ranches caught my eye. The red barn with the buggy parked and ready for its next trip to town spoke of a much simpler life.
