Excursion

Mother was here for a short visit over Christmas, we took these pictures on the drive back on Xmas day. We thought the skies would make good pictures. At times ominous, but with more storm clouds on the horizon. (clickable thumbnails.)

Lovely pictures, Eric. They evoke a nostalgic wintry mood for me. Folks driving around that curve in picture # 3 better be careful!. Looking forward to more of your prose, poetry, and photography in 2009. Best wishes to you and your family.

Eric Valentine said...

Thank you for your kind words Forsythia, scenes like those can do that to a person.

We too look forward to what the new year will bring.. May yours be special also for you & your family. :)
