John A. Hostetler, a renowned sociologist and scholar of the Amish who grew up in the Big Valley, called this area “one of the most diverse expressions of Anabaptist-Mennonite culture anywhere in North America.” This region, approximately thirty miles long and four miles wide, is home to no less than twelve different Amish and Mennonite groups—all of which are derived from one original Amish settlement. These groups range from some of the most integrated and liberal Mennonites to arguably the most conservative Old Order Amish sects in North America.

We had 10″ of snow the day before. The temperature dropped well in to the teens. I had taken my camera along to work with me  thinking I would see what I could find on my way to and from work. (got there a little late)  It was getting close to sunset when I remembered this scene.  For sunsets I like to stick around after the sun goes down because you never know what the sky is going to do.  This image was made about 20min after the sun went down.
