Light in the Countryside

The light on this classical Virginia farmhouse featured on Houzz is to die for.  I am a city girl through and through, but there is something about the light on a clear day in the countryside that has me dreaming of an isolated retreat from the bustle (and pollution!) of the big cities I've lived in.  Maybe someday I'll have a second home out in the countryside I can sneak off to on the weekends.  I figure I might as well dream big!  This picture also reminds me of one of my all-time favorite editorials in Architectural Digest, this gorgeous home in upstate New York by Gil Schaffer.

That light!  Those boxwoods!  It makes me rethink my stance on the countryside entirely.
Are you more of a country or a city girl (or guy)?
