  1. Wonderful shots all. Is the sky really that blue in certain parts of the country? The best we can hope in Boston for is a general mild ochre. (I have no idea what’s going on in those MIT labs.) I like the first the best as it is a wonderful juxtaposition of Man’s feeble encroachment against majestic and eternal Nature. (And now you know why I’m not invited to more parties.)

    • Someone once told me that the Boston smog was caused by all the hot air coming from the very intelligent chattering of the inhabitants. I didn’t believe them of course. 🙂

  2. As much as i always love to see your good weather and majestic scenery, I really liked the shot of the fence. 🙂
    It spoke to me of ‘The Old West’.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

  3. Hard choice! It’s a toss up between 7 and 8 for me but it was very hard to choose. Each of them have their particular enticement. The first one reminded me of properties my Dad bought and sold after new fencing, cropping and stocking the properties. Some of those old fences had been up for generations by the looks of them.

    • They are forgotten and left to rot in the tall grass; they make great foreground props. 😉
      I’ve been to Hart Prairie many times and it was the first time I “saw” it. Strange I didn’t see it before!

  4. I prefer #2. It has real depth and leads you through the photograph to the hill on the horizon. Catching a woodpecker on camera is not as easy as the photograph makes it look either!

    • Thanks, John. He was pretty far away, too. I’m glad you like #2. When you hike it, it’s an amazing natural welcoming to a gorgeous world.
