#WW Autumn splendor and surprise

Something came up, like getting time to spend with my DH for another week, so I won’t be in Blogosphere this week. . A few more days unplugged from the net will do this gal good.  You ought to try it!

Do you remember Price Lake on the Blue Ridge Parkway? While enjoying time with DH this month, I photographed it again. The fall foliage was more glorious than before! Here’s a picture from a different vantage point. One minute, I’m snapping away at this….

DSC_3977What a nice surprise! I’m not an action photographer. I think I was a little stunned, as a blend of excitement and panic set in. In rapid session I fired three or four shots. I was thinking, if I get one picture that isn’t blurry I’d be a happy girl (as it turned out I got two that weren’t bad), but the sense that griped me as we pulled away was the thrill of the experience. Now, that was a lot of fun!

Sending a round of applauds and cheers to this week’s featured photographer…

#WW: Unexpected foliage change

I took this picture at the end of September. What a pleasant day spent in the mountains with this unexpected foliage change.  If you’re wondering, no, you’re not having déjà vu.

Last Friday, I shared a similar image with fellow photo enthusiasts, but I love the way I framed this shot. As you can see the slightest shift of the lens makes a big difference.

This month I’m taking a hiatus. There will be no featured photographers, but I’m keeping the linky party going and will do return visits in short order.

Thank you for making me apart of your day. Have a fototastic day!




#SWF: Price Lake BRPW in NC

Last Saturday’s drive took us back to Boone, North Carolina where we got on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I was surprised to see the beginning of nature’s wardrobe change.

The cool evenings and warm days have stimulated an early glimpse of fall’s foliage for the abundant of visitors. If this keeps up, then the colors will peak sooner than expected. Geez, I cannot believe it’s October, can you?

What is autumn revealing in your part of the country?

In case you missed the news, I’m taking a wee break this month. I scheduled my photo post ahead with the anticipation that you would stop by. Let me say, Thank you for making me apart of your day and although, I’m unplugged I will return visits to anyone who leaves a comment.  Until we meet on the other side of the lens next, have a fototastic day!
