Amish Country Pennsylvania Photographer Motorcycle Travel Stock ImagesHere’s another photographic image that includes a couple of my favorite subjects and experiences when I tour The Amish Country near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I made three separate trips to this area on my BMW motorcycle in 2021. As a travel and adventure photographer and writer, the Amish people quickly became a favorite subject of mine. Their lifestyle, after all, is one of the biggest reasons travelers from all over the country visit this wonderful region. Their quaint way of life is so different from what one witnesses anywhere else. Their use of horse drawn buggies for daily transportation being one of the things visitors notice (and photograph) most often. A second reason I visited this area was to visit with a dear friend who happens to be a licensed hot air balloon pilot. (He is also an internationally recognized professional photographer who has spent 4 decades documenting the people and lifestyle in the Amish community). When visiting with my friend I had the opportunity, on more than one occasion, to be part of the "Chase crew" for his balloon flights…the team that follows, from the ground, the flight of the balloon; and is responsible for the safe landing, disassembly and return of the aircraft (and its passengers) to the launch field from which it lifted off from earlier. This serendipitous moment occurred during one such "chase". As my friend was flying the balloon over the Amish countryside, an Amish family came riding by in their horse drawn buggy. I was equipped with my Nikon mirrorless camera fitted with a Nikkor zoom lens and was able to capture this image of the family going by with the balloon flying above them. During many trips by motorcycle to the Amish and Mennonite Pennsylvania Dutch region of Pennsylvania over the past few years I have created many photographic images of the Amish people and their unique lifestyle. Many of those pictures appear here on this web site and I maintain an extensive library of stock photographs available in addition to those that are displayed here. This particular image was spotted by the folks at The US Hot Air Balloon Team, based in the Amish community of Bird-In-Hand, PA; who chose it as part of the advertising artwork to adorn the side of one of their "Chase" vehicles. Many of the photographs I take during my adventure motorcycle travels around the United States and Canada ultimately get sold or leased as stock photographs to professionals in the tourism and hospitality industries. If you are looking for any particular image for your next travel and hospitality industry creative project take a look around my web site for any image that might fill your needs. In the absence of same, give me a shout. I may have just what you are looking for in my extensive body of work. If not, I’m always looking for an excuse to climb on my BMW motorcycle and travel to any great destination in the US or Canada.
