Outstanding in the Field

Two weeks ago, Fatty and I, along with some friends, attended an Outstanding in the Field dinner on a beautiful farm overlooking the Ohio River. It was event that we had anticipated for many months and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful evening. From bourbon sweet tea and local wines, to the foods grown and prepared for us, everything was delicious and more. Tradition dictates that everyone brings a plate, thus allowing everyone to bring something to the long, outstretched table. It was a grand sight and sitting there, watching the sun set over the river, was an idyllic scene. I have always loved the idea behind Outstanding in the Field and I was happy that the experience lived up to that idea. Before too much time went by, I wanted to document that wonderful night. It was the first time in a long while that I felt like taking more than one or two or ten photos. I know this is a photo heavy post, but I had a hard time narrowing down my selections. These are my favorites.

i loved all of these photos, erin! it looks like such a fantastic evening. good food, beautiful setting, beautiful light-- perfection.


Looks amazing. I recently attended a similar evening where 230 people were fed on a long white linen covered table. It was a magical evening I will never forget.
Thanks for sharing


I'm so glad you posted pictures. I've told a few of my volunteer friends about this and we are planning to this for next summer. What a wonderful night!

What a fabulous idea, I see from your link that there was one not far from us in Ontario, so it's going on my bucket list. Photos are stunning, especially the sun setting over the river.
