The theme for this week's Brenda's Photo Challenge is "Highways and Byways." Anyone who wants to join in the challenge is welcomed. The challenges have made me personally pay more attention to whatever theme is chosen, it is fun, your photography improves, and you make some wonderful blogging friends.
I decided to photograph the six miles off US Highway 290W to my house plus a couple of miles past our gate. I might have done a couple of miles more except, but wouldn't you know it, the camera's battery died; and, when I left Friday morning, I forgot to pick up the camera bag with the charged batteries. I had a senior moment until about half way into town.
These lovely sunflowers dot the roadside as we leave Highway 290W to travel back to the house.
Just turned off 290W....good grief! Three cars! Am I on a freeway?
There are lots of curves; some are gentle while others are hard turns.
Aaaaaah, let's stop for a moment to enjoy the peace and quiet of this pasture scene. Please notice all that green stuff........finally, we've had rain -- 13-1/2 inches since September 8.
The low water bridge. I've actually seen the water rushing over the 5 foot mark. It was quite a sight.
This is the reason for the low-water bridge. The water may not look very pretty, but it is welcomed as it has been over a year since there was any water in this creek.
Where others have the beautiful colors of fall all around them, we have these lovely sunflowers dotting the roadsides.
Went a little past our house. I take this back road to the vet's in Johnson City. From the looks of this sign, the teenagers have been doing a little target practice under the cover of night. :D
This is where the camera battery died........but this is a really neat low-water bridge. You have to be careful to check how deep the water is if running across the bridge because there is quite a drop off into the creek.
Hallelujah! Water is under the second low-water bridge!
Don't forget to go here for more highways and byways. :D
Until next time, God bless.
