The view from my perch on the mountain

Archive for August 24, 2010

Twelve hours

Yesterday afternoon getting out with the camera again felt so good that I just had to get a few more frames.


Even though I really shouldn’t have been out driving, watching the sunset through the window just wasn’t enough. Besides, the Methodist church out on rte. 52 is nearby and on high ground so……….


The view from the parking lot was gorgeous!


As I wandered back home, the long way or course, I got to see a couple critters out and about.

Oh, deer!

I can’t say how many points that buck has in his rack (I’m guessing 6) but these 2 were probably 150 yards out and I could tell he was a buck with the naked eye! This was also when I realized I had left my glasses at home. This shot was at max zoom with a 55-250MM Image Stabilized lens in fading light.

Nah, couldn't be!

I soon realized the drugs hadn’t completely worn off yet because I was having hallucinations. You wouldn’t believe what I thought when I saw this horse.

Moon over Sand Mountain

Deciding to err on the side of safety I headed for home. Besides, the light was fading fast and I was afraid of what I might see looming up in the headlights. That horse was enough!

On the way to town


The pond I pass each morning as I take THE BOSS to work.


Returning home


In the field at the bottom of our street.


It’s a very good thing I have a fresh supply of allergy meds on hand. That golden rod is blooming all over the place!  


All of these frames were shot from the driver’s seat of my truck. I’m not quite ready to try my legs on rough ground just yet.
