"THIS IS WHY I WANTED IT!"

by Brenda Nelson October. 25, 2011 3372 views

The first time that I saw the motorcycle, I told Larry that it would be wonderful for a day trip to Blanchard Springs with our cameras - and today we took it there! It was sunny, 82 degrees, and totally perfect! Hope you enjoy the ride!

This shot was SO hard to get right, bcause we were going in and out of shadows and trees at 50 miles per hour!

Larry stopped in the middle of a bridge for me to take this shot of the bluffs at Calico Rock!

Blanchard Springs campground

A dam of fallen leaves

A bluff reflected in the clear creek water

Our picnic beside the stream and fall trees

These leaves and little snails are all underwater!

Two leaves floating on top of the water….and

…lots of leaves submerged in the water….and

…one solitary leaf floating along on the current!

The end of a great day!

Love that first shadow, sometimes we have to take many shots to get the one we want! I also love #10 and the contrast in colors and textures!

What a lovely ride you had! #7 and 9 are my favorites! It was 81 degrees F here today, but they are forcasting a lot of snow on Wed. I'll bet your nice weather will continue a lot longer!!!!

My arms are sore from driving, my hands are sore from shifting, my butt is sore from riding over 100 miles today, and my camera battery is low. A PERFECT day!!!

These are just great Brenda!!! I LOVE 4 and 5 even though they're all great.
82° eh?? It was sunny and 63 here today. I'm only just a wee bit jealous.
