"Cemetery Check"

Came across this neglected cemetery with my old boyfriend on a min-road trip to and from Central VA to the Northern Neck. I didn’t cross that line and enter—seemed a bit invasive to do so. But, my dog had to check it out. Guess there were no ghosts there.

What does one do when stuck in a tech conference, after lunch time, with nothing but a small note pad & a gel pen? Mindless doodling.

"Autumn Rays"

I just couldn’t get enough of the sun rays and sky yesterday. The air was cool, the sun warm, and the water was still. Can I get any closer to beauty?

"Slow-Boating Season"

The leaves are gorgeous this time of year and the lake is pretty empty of tourists. Perfect time to slow-boat it on a pontoon with friends and my dog.

If clouds could sing, this would be an aria.

"A Little Color"

These are from June of this year, from my friend’s garden. He’s got an amazing green thumb.

"Morning Clouds"

This morning, I could see the cloud front coming. Although the air was still, you can see the feathering of the clouds meant they were fighting a windy battle high in the sky and far away from the humans below.

"Evening Clouds"

By evening, the feathery clouds were buckling and condensing forming the beautiful thing that feeds the earth—rain.

"Chateau Merrillanne"

Yummy wine.  Gorgeous day.  The Roaming Gooch was a hit.

"Blood Moon"

I wake up before dawn nowadays. This morning, I realized ASAP that the total lunar eclipse was occurring. The earth was moving between the sun and the moon and only the reddish rays were filtering through. One time, as I was moving between buildings, I noticed it flashed red and bright and then dark again, because the rays were refracting around the edges of the roofs it was peeking through. Pretty cool.

Anyway, I was pretty much half asleep and had only minutes before the sun rose and the sky brightened. I had forgotten to take off the UV filter from the lens and it created a mirror ghost image in a couple of these pictures.

Sitting high on this hot day… and looking to see how to get down!  LOL

"Roaming Gnome Road"
It’s tough to travel all over the place.  Sometimes, it’s a long, empty, and lonely road.

"The Roaming Gnome"

Not a gnome, but my dog (aka, Gucci, The Gooch, The Goochmeister). He’s so small and portable, I love taking him all over. This lucky little guy is 14 years old and has jetted to Germany, France, and all over the U.S. He’s no stranger to planes, trains and automobiles (and boats to boot!). You may catch him in the corner of a picture or two.
