    This picture taken in the river pictured above. The boat was around the left side of the frame when taken. uploadfromtaptalk1382363676083.jpg

    Craig . . . you probably mentioned it before, but I forget. What type of drone and camera set up do you have? I am quite impressed with the aerial shots.

    Nice pics Craig. We are at about 35-40% color. I would expect the colors at the river to start getting pretty vivid at this point. I will find out this weekend.

    Mrs. K - looks like you have your own little corner of peace. I like it. Throw that young lad a sammich and tell him about the good job he is doing.;)

    I learned a little something about fall pics! It appears you have to take them in the opposite of how you usually take pics - that is, toward the sun instead of away from it. The sun coming through the trees as backlight seems to create the sheen.....

    This is probably common knowledge, but I learn the hard way.

    I have no doubt that you are correct but it is a tough one to get the boat that far up on shore.;lol

    was it not Thunderball where Bond jumps his boat out of the water and skips it across the top of a police cruiser? You might wanna try something like that...wear helmet for safety. also suggest burst of snapshots, you maybe don't wanna have to keep going back to try and get a better shot.

    Here are a couple little trees that caught my eye. They say "fall"....

    Still some color here in RI (weekend place)....I'm going to try and fly the drone if the wind is low. Last night we had 40 MPH gusts! The windows were making noise...like bending glass!

    Colors on the river are not there yet. I don't know if we just haven't peaked yet or if this might be a weak year. Next weekend will tell.

    Speaking of weather. Afghanistan (The country) does not like us here! Not fun. Sorry, fall weather! If you do not know what this is, hold your breath. Sand Storm, can see it coming for miles. Didn't mean to stop the PRETTY PICTURES!
