Each shot is perfect. But, I do have my favorites. The purple flowers and the gnarly tree to name only two.

I wish I could learn to get such color into my photo. Mine seem pale by comparison.

Linda said...

What amazing photos! Catching that heron in the tree...the tree, those cabins - just beautiful! Did you stay in those cabins?

Tezzie said...

Such a gorgeous place! I really love that old stone bridge, and the run down cabin with the funky chimney :) Your photos are wonderful as usual!

Awesome pictures, Brian. I love the old stone bridge and the log cabin, well all of them. But my favorite is the last one. It is so peaceful.

The Heron shot and scenery is superb, lovely colours and depth of field.

So many breathtaking images I don't know where to begin! The azaleas look like a ready-made bridal bouquet; all it needs is a ribbon. Another standout is the heron in the tree.

Terri Buster said...

Fantastic shots- once again! You always wow me with your photos.

Lmkazmierczak said...

Various shots needs more punch line Brian, for each of these various shots are exquisite and so full of charm and beauty!!! My favorite of all is the very beautiful tree, with great character about it. Thanks for sharing and Happy weekend~

Amy Burzese said...

All beautiful. The cabin, the bridge and the tree I especially like.

Great pictures! Lovely countryside, the birds and the flowers.

By the way. I have also a 60D. I had a 1100 before but my interest for photographing is increasing. I try to learn from others. I went to a course 3 times to learn basic and now I have to practise. I dont know everything on the camera yet. I only have it for some months. My favourite is the wildness and the nature.
Your pictues with your 60D are great. Hope I will get that some day :-)

Amazing! As always your pictures are breathtaking.

Marie said...

Amazing shots! I can't decide which one I like the best, they are all so good. I have to say, I wish I owned that little rustic cabin!

Nancy Claeys said...

Good Lord! I am in awe of these captures, Brian. Can I borrow your camera for, like, a few years? Lol.

mynature said...

Looking good Brian : )

Liz said...

Oh my!!! What an absolutely stunning set of images, Brian. As I scrolled to each one I was in awe. I love the old hut with the chimney, the old stone bridege, the gorgeous flowers, the colours of the duck... I could go on...
I love visiting your blog. Your images are fantastic and such a delight to see. I'm with Nancy... I'd love to borrow your camera and lenses for a year or two or more :)

Carole said...

Beautiful photos. Love the foxglove. Those flowers used to be everywhere on our property when I was a kid. The cabin is very similar to one standing in the historic Champoeg State Park here in Oregon. Thanks for sharing. :-)

Madge Bloom said...

Love this series... especially the first of the mountains and the cabin with the mud chinked chimney...

Stewart M said...

Wonderful set of pictures - really like the heron in the tree.

Faye said...

A tour of the Blue Ridges and didn't even have to board the puppy! Now that's service. All your photos are special Brian, but out of this random selection I could look at the stone bridge a long time. Great textures and color contrasts.
