If you found time to visit my last post about being back on the bike, you will know that my friend Dave and I tackled The Snake, a 33 mile ride with 489 curves. It was a blast, and it ended up being a 285 mile day!
In addition to getting some much needed wind in the face therapy, I was also able to enjoy some photography time. We rode over South Holston Lake via the American Legion Memorial Bridge and found a place to park and shoot.
These scenes also caught my eye
If you like to ride, be sure to visit my previous post. In the meantime, know that it’s been so, so great to visit your blogs this week!
Yes! More from your fabulous ride 🙂 Another set of fun and fabulous images, Laurie! No “rust” settled on your camera, my friend – the reflections are gorgeous, the bridge shots make me feel as if I crossed it myself, the hayrolls just make me smile, the cross takes my breath away, and the BW leaf is stunning! Welcome baaack 😃👍🏻
Stacy, your enthusiastic comments just make me smile. I look forward to seeing you again someday!
Let’s make it happen in 2016, Laurie, and sooner rather than later 🙂 I’d love to come your way and see your world (and perhaps get a ride in that wonderful bike of yours 😄)!
That would be wonderful! And if you find your way here on other business or travel, know that you always have a place to stay!
Perfect biking cıountry – wow, love to be there. Enjoy on behalf of others 🙂
I will and if you ever get over here, let’s ride!!
Perhaps in the next life… till then, I’m lapping it all up through your posts 🙂
Its so good to see you back into the swing of things Laurie (riding and photography). All of these images are great and the reflections are gorgeous 🙂
Thank you, Joe! I’m still not quite up to speed in terms of keeping up with others blogs, but I’m getting there!
What Stacy said…
Such lovely scenes you’ve captured Laurie! 🙂
Thank you, Elina. It’s fun to be back!
Love the hay rolls especially! So glad you are back doing all the things you love to do!
Thank you, Pauline. I’m so glad you liked the hay rolls … those are some of my favorites, too.
Laurie, you still have a wonderful eye for a photo 🙂
Each one is beautiful, but I can imagine riding over that bridge. I would have wanted to stop too!
I do love a bridge!!
and the photos were helped by the perfect day that Mother Nature provided 🙂
We are all glad you are back in the bike and shooting, LB.
Thank you, Jim. It sure does feel good!
Thank you, Derrick!
Oooh, nice bridge mate 🙂
Isn’t it though? I just love to ride back and forth, back and forth across a bridge!
I get that, it is strangely satisfying 🙂
Your photos reflect your joy and peace of mind!
Thank you, Kerry!
I was thinking of you as I have worked on photos about a VT football game. It reminded me of yours about Penn State (we don’t see many blog post about College Football 🙂 )
And I thought about you all day yesterday and cheered for VT and Frank Beamer. What an emotional day! I was disappointed in the outcome but the players still made him proud! A great coach.
It was an incredible day! and yes, the whole of Hokie Nation is proud.
Wonderful photo series, Laurie. Especially the B&W leaf. Well done.
Thank you, Frank. I used that B&W in my Monochromia post this week.
Love the leaf in the water, Laurie. Good choice for Monochromia!
Thanks, Mary. I thought it would work for Monochromia, too 🙂
Hey Laurie, it just hasn’t been the same without you here!! 😉
Splendid shots, I adore the straight on bridge shot. No idea why, probably the symmetry of it…
Glad your back!
Hi Danella! It think it’s the symmetry, too. I stood right in the middle of the road to take it. Thankfully, traffic was light!
I’m still getting around to everyone’s blogs … I look forward to visiting yours soon!
Wow, great pic’s. I love the bridge, the leaf and hay rolls! Yay, she’s back!
Thank you, Lisa!!
With everything that is going on in the world, I found the cross on the tree…inspiring.
Laurie, I’m so glad you commented about that. I decided to convert this image to B&W for my weekly post on Monochromia, and as I was working the photo, I saw for the first time, the eulogy that was carved into it.
Feeling the fresh air through these great scenes Laurie and so happy you’re out there back on the bike with your camera!
