The Snake Part 2

_MG_8513-3

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.

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!

  1. 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 😃👍🏻

  2. 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, 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 🙂 )

  3. 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!

    • 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.

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
