We see scenes like this all the time when we ramble around over in Illinois. One of these days I would love to find a place to pull off, use my tripod and take a series of photos and stitch them together. Something about these scenes I love...
It is that time of week--time for Barn Charm. The meme opens around 7:00 p.m. Again I have drive-bys to offer. These were taken back in April...the same day I took the picture of the Eugene Covered Bridge.
This one is in the best shape of the lot.
This one was rather dark in the original. I have tried to lighten it up and still keep it natural looking. Sometimes hard to on this laptop.
We drove through the strip pits yesterday on our way to Walmart. We saw this fellow/gal crossing the road. When I got out to take photos, he did not slow down. He turned around and was going in front of our Rav4, so I picked him up to help him along and he just didn't stop.
By the way, notice how he almost glows? You are seeing the real thing...he really did seem to glow with color. And when Roger and Sarah went mushroom hunting, they found one just as brightly colored, and maybe a little bit more so.
This was the only creature that cooperated when we went up to the place north of Danville, Illinois...where you go to view herons and bald eagles. This was back when the flooding was going on. We saw herons from a distance and saw a bald eagle or two...not sure if it was two or if it was just the same one in a different place.
