Great set of pictures! Really like the moon shot.

As you may imagine - I did get a bit excited when I found the woodpecker in my friends yard!

A small little something for you.
You are deeply appreciated. :)

Awesome views of the Blue Ridge mountains scenery.
The mist rising from the lake is especially spectacular.
Nicely done, Brian.

Just when I think it can't get any better, you fool me again! These are amazing, Brian! Catching the heron in the tree...the road (you KNOW I am a sap for road shots), the mist...all simply beautiful! BTW, I have started a Wordless Wednesday meme, since Kent doesn't do one anymore...you can find it at http://wordlesswednesdayagain.blogspot.com.
I really hope to see you post there - it will go live at 12:01am on Wednesdays!
Thanks again for all of the fabulous shots!

Nothing more beautiful than seeing the Mist coming off the lake.

Nice!

Tanya said...

Amazing shots as always! I love the moon shot (of course) and well can't resist a heron. But the scenery shots...it is truly a great composition when you can "smell" the nature (or wish I could).

A gorgeous collection of photos, Brian. That moon shot is wonderful.

TexWisGirl said...

really like the sunkissed path, the GBH in the trees, the reflection shot. for some reason the heavy white clouds shot kinda overshadowed those for me, and you can moon us anytime you like. :)

Terri Buster said...

You make it all look so easy- wish I had an ounce of your photography skills! I like them all!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Wow, once again, Brian, you have spectacular shots! It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think it would be the road through the trees and the mist over the lake with the reflections.

Amy Burzese said...

I'm always so impressed with your shots. Beautiful once again. That bird in the tree is so funny.

Leenie said...

Dittos to all above. All excellent but the turtles are my favorite.

Deb said...

Pamela Gordon said...

Spectacular shots! I love the one of the fog/mist over the water. Beautiful.

Nancy said...

Breathtaking shots, Brian...

Debbie said...

Wanda plain~N~simple said...

Love the moon shot... heck, I love all of them!

Andrea said...

Boy, some of your shots are just breath taking ... in fact most of them are. Are you just visiting the Blue Ridge area or is that clost to home? You make me want to go there ...

Outstanding work! Loving the fog shot and the dirt path. Can I ask what lens you used to capture the curved path? I always try to capture those on my hikes and fail miserably. Probably because my lens is too long.

Visiting from A Rural Journal....

Linda said...

Stunning photos!

Liz said...

I am scrolling down your post saying WOW... oh WOW... oh sigh... Beauty upon beaty. I love the scenery, the skies, the clouds, the flowers, the dirt track, the turtles... I could go on.
Brian, these shots are amazing. Such beauty captured to enjoy. Thank you :)

Each shot is amazing, but I'm especially drawn to the reflection, moon shot, and I want to go for a walk down that gravel lane. Amazing!

Seeing your Blue Ridge Mt. photo journal is ALMOST as good as being there, Brian. What a treasure we have in it so close to Kentucky.

I couldn't begin to pick a favorite from these! Well done.
