November Around Here

It's Willy Nilly Friday again.
Skywatch and Orange You Glad It's Friday
1. I was hoping to capture a beautiful sunset from Skyline Drive but our northern section of the park now closes at 5 PM. This makes it simpler for rangers to see that laws against hunting are followed. Normal hours resume after January 8. Anyway, I photographed the sunset from the park entrance in Front Royal.

2. Mersad has challenged us to post a "foggy day" photo. I took this foggy image at Dickey Ridge on November 9th.

3. On that same day, I took other pictures including this reflection at Gooney Run Overlook (named after a river).



4. This is a clipping from an old scrapbook showing my daughters getting 4-H Club awards, along with two other students. At that time we lived in the Delray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.

5. The final picture shows a sign I saw today not far from our home. It is hand-lettered and the bird pictures are quite nice. It says:
Please do not kill wild birds! excepting trurkeys and common game birds, geese, grouse, etc. Do not shoot crows or vultures!!!

  4. The sunsets are nice this month and you found a good one. Lots off open land around for me to grab them.I don't want any manmade objects to make it still a nature photo, but it is hard.

  5. I've passed through this area time and again on trips to somewhere else. I've obviously missed so much. I loved the fog photo. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
