Breathing in the Sunlight on My Birthday Weekend

Autumn color is underway here in northern Columbia County. Here are some images that made me smile over my birthday weekend.

It was a beautiful afternoon, with the sun slanting across the trees and our neighbor’s barn…

And B and I enjoyed a nice long walk at one of my very favorite spots: Ooms Pond.

Oh and, we attended the most wonderful group photography exhibition at Spencertown Academy on Saturday, calling attention to the natural and agricultural beauty of Columbia County. The show is up until Sunday, November 13th, so if you’re in the area, do check it out. I’ll leave you with this incredible image entitled Herondale Cows at Sunrise by B. Docktor. It knocked my socks off. Meanwhile, see more incredible images here and, if you have the inclination and means, consider making a donation to CLC in memory of the cheetahs, wolves, grizzly bears, lions and 18 Bengal tigers who were destroyed in Zanesville, Ohio, this week due to the idiocy and arrogance of some creatures of the human variety. Or, at the very least, say a little prayer: May all beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.

    Cows? Very nice, highly doctored (no pun intended), I assume.
    Your lone pear framing that peaceful corner and cabin is the one that got MY socks off.

    Thanks, T2T. I can’t say if the cow image has been doctored, but I do love those faces. I’ve just got animals on my mind, I guess. This whole Zanesville, Ohio, debacle with the exotics has me very depressed. Sigh.
