Sunday Still - On The Road

Pretty straightforward, any type of pics of roads, straight, curvy, bends, paved, gravel, dirt… If you can, get some interesting scenery in your road shots... :-)



One of my favorite road spots, just up from our farm.



It's pretty obvious what would throw these shadows...



But would you expect all this too?



One of our neighbors planted these a couple years ago and they bloom all summer. I should have taken these during the peak time, but they are still lovely.



There's a prize in this picture. Click to biggify.



The little creek had been bone dry for weeks until the recent rains. Even under here as far as I noticed. But maybe not.



Where would these tiny minnows have come from? Resiliency.



In fact, there were wild flowers all over down there.



A view from (just a bit off) the road.

For more roadworthy Sunday Stills...

Gorgeous! I love all the wildflowers along the roadsides.

Love all the pretty wildflowers. :)

Alice said...

Is there a black caterpillar in the “prize photo” ?
Love the wildflowers against the gray of the road in the 3rd photo, and the soft random clouds to contrast the hard linear roadway in the 1st one. Nice composition ;-)

Cool! I like the shadow in the first shot ;)

thecrazysheeplady said...

Nope - well there *may* be a caterpillar, but look again.

Alice said...

Okay, maybe a bee at the top of one of the flowers, and/or the white moth? Otherwise, I GIVE UP ;-)

Shirley said...

Very nice flowers. I found a hummingbird -and a butterfly- in the prize photo.

thecrazysheeplady said...

Yep, a hummingbird :-D.

That last shot is great with the barn in the background. :)

I've wondered that about minnows too!

Great flowers shots. They are so bright and pretty. And the hummingbird is so awesome.

Farmchick said...

Nice shots and the flowers area beautiful.

flowerweaver said...

Beautiful colors! Good to see water back in the creek. We just got a nice rain!

love those orange flowers in the last shot. do you know what they are?

I couldn't find anything in that photo dab nabbit!

I did find that we in Ohio have what is known as a Central Mudminnow that can breathe air for small amounts of time and burrow in the mud during droughts.

Also, I think the flowers are mostly cosmos? When we traveled to West Virginia in early August they had them planted all along the Interstate in the median. The beauty of it just took your breath away!
