Autumn Sun on the Bohemian Highway


Driving this rural road in Sonoma County is a tranquilย exploration of farms and roadside stands. Stops at Worker Bee Farm and Wild Flour Bakery in Freestone, California were highlights on this sunny autumn morning.

  1. Look at those vibrant colours of those farm fresh fruits. You have definitely redefined them through your shots.

  5. Oh, wow. Such beautiful color. I get all primitive hunter-gatherer at this time of year and your pictures have me jonesing for the next market.
    (That craggy Hubbard squash is really nice. So is the pumpkin dew. You’ve taken the familiar and made it your own.)

    • Hi Patricia, Love hearing from you, thanks so much. The hunter-gatherer image is perfect for the feeling we have wandering the stands. For food and photos! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

  6. Lucious colours, warts and all (I really like that one.) But it was the bread that made me hungry!

  7. These are terrific Jane. I love fall.

  8. Preparing for halloween, right? Nice autumn colors and mood!

  9. Roadside markets, they’re pretty much done for the season here. Melons gone, corn gone. The root vegetables, limited selection. I haven’t seen freshly-made bread on the roadside here.

    Nice, nice photos, Jane.
