Gina, what lovely lovely shots. You live in a beautiful area. Here all our trees are now bare and it is cold and drizzling. I wish it looked like your shots outside.

As usual I have to apologize for not dropping by in forever. I just about gave up on blogger. I can never think of anything to write. Most of the people I knew aren't even blogging, they are on Facebook though. LOL As usual your photos are spectacular. I absolutely love the eagles. What an opportunity. I just got through showing your photos to my son. He really has an eye for photography. If he had a better camera, he'd be great. Hope all is well with you & yours & you have a wonderful Holiday Season.

Hello Gina,

The river + railway picture appeals to me: the way the clarity from the foreground recedes into the mist. Beautiful perspective.
(You were a 'next blog', and I am glad I stopped by).

Wonderful photos. The train makes the top one special.

That must be some train ride in the fall. Love that last shot, especially.

These are such beautiful colors! Not sure how you snuck this post by me, I kept peeking over here and nothing was new, then poof - there you are! :)

I missed this one! Think I must have been busy preparing to go on vacation. The autumn colours are gorgeous and you captured them brilliantly! Jeannette xx

Just popping in to say hi and see how you're doing! I saw that Florence, Alabama pop in on my blog and just knew it was you!
I think about you often and hope you'll return to blogging again one of these days. Miss you! *Hugs*
