Fields

F.... is for fields.... corn fields...

Ohio farmers could see record yields this year due to ample rain and cooler-than-normal temperatures.
Some stalks are producing two ears per stalk which is pretty uncommon. Corn fields are plentiful all over Ohio.

Ball of Fire

Taken on a country road, this sunset looked like a ball of fire. I took many shots...most of them framed with the telephone poles. I especially liked the band of yellow around the sun, which is better when enlarged...

E....is for Elk

In Rocky Mountain National Park the elk roam freely and don't seem to be disturbed by the presence of people, at least they weren't when I took these shots in Oct...

This big guy couldn't care less....

Mellow Yellow Monday

Wildflower or weed....this very tall plant is growing on the edge of a field...I thought it was a wild daisy variation...or goldenrod....or just a weed...I don't know, but I like the yellow against the sky...

Scenic Sunday

A walk around a lake on a Sunday afternoon enjoying nature is my idea of relaxation. Getting a few shots of a pretty day is an added bonus.

Skywatch

These are two different views of the same area taken while I was visiting in Annapolis, MD.

These are private piers behind the homes built on this inlet. I would love to have this view in my backyard.

Colosseum

The Colosseum is an elliptical amphitheater in the center of the city of Rome, Italy. Constructed between 72-80 AD, it is one of the greatest works of Roman Architecture.

View of the inside... Partial flooring reveals exposed areas where wild animals and gladiators were confined until combat games began.
I took these photos on a trip to Rome for Easter in 2006. Click ABC on the sidebar for more of this fun meme.

Scenic Sunday

Colorado is one of my favorite places to visit. I love the mountains and the scenery in general. I don't think they have a bad view anywhere...
