"I Came, I Saw, I Stuck Around!"
rich colors .... the fall is so beautiful I think!
last of the stunning roses!
It's my favorite time here, Rosie...the weather is just right too.
Yes, I was lucky to get them still in full bloom.
Loved all the shots , fall is my favorate too and the spring too enjoy the evening hugs Rosiex
Really nce the way the colours are framed against the taller green trees behind Doug
An elegant bridge Doug.
What a lovely looking place
A fine bridge with the autumnal hues as a backdrop and boulders in the foreground, great shot Doug.
This looks familiar from flood sites in this area of which there are many.
Sturdy pines there Doug
That's a really nice view and I'm sure a great thing to hear as well as see
Beautiful, the relections are great!
I love the contrast here Doug, another great scene from your multi-coloured neck of the woods
It is a great resource to have on the doorstep Doug. I've been to the theatre lately myself, ten days ago I saw a two-man adaptation of Robert Tressell's socialist classic The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists at Worcester University, it was very good. I was considering doing a review but 10 days is a very long time in cyberspace.But as I was saying it is great to have this theatre on tap, hope you get to another performance soon.
Looks like a painting by Jackson Pollock, absolutely stunning Doug, I really like this one, its a work of art.
Absolutely stunning pic,Doug!!!Or....should I say Count Floyd!!! :)
Beautiful Fall colors Doug, I just wish our native maples would turn those lovely colors instead of yellow then brown. I have driven thru Ashland but never attended the theater...its a beautiful little town.You are lucky to live in such a beautiful place.
Enjoy your evening (or the next one as the Greenwich Time permits) too Rosie. :-)
Thanks AA. The city parks people do a wonderrful keeping things up around here, which helps.
Yes, it's really an unexpected benefit from the '97 flood. The arch here gives the place a Japanese Tea Garden feeling.
Yes, my wife had about a dozen of her family with us for her parents' wedding anniversary. We took them all down to the park one day. Little did I realize I would be seeing a lot of the older pathways and the old playground area Shirley used to visit with her parents as a kid for the last time.
I imagine your area gets more than its share of flooding. We've been lucky since the New Year's 1997 flood.
These pondorosa pines are truly awe-inspiring. Of all of these natural skyscapers, these are the most sturdy indeed, AA.
Their bark looks almost like stone work, don't you think?
Indeed. To me, that bark looks almost like stone work in the sunlight.
There is something about running water, isn't there? The sound of a cascade like this on a day with few people about is very soothing.
That they are! I caught the right day and time for that.
The red of the tree in the foreground there just draws the eye. That contrast doesn't last long (just this time of year) but its like a color postcard from the hills of New England back east while it lasts!
Thanks TL. I answer to either one this time of year. Ahhhhoooooo!
I'll have to look Robert Tressel up. Sounds interesting. Yes, it is a great boon to have a live theatre showcase like this. About five of the fifteen or so plays put on annually from Feburary to the end of this month are by your rsident "Brummie" genius Will of Stratford. I did see an excellent 'Measure for Measure' this year...but the best one for my money is a modern play based on a true story: about free African-Americans in the 1820's putting on "Richard III" in New York City--and being closed down by the authorities when an major white company opens the same play down the street. It's called "The African Company Presents Richard III"
Thanks AA. This last one I admit I am a little proud of.
absolutely gorgeous, Doug!!!
I could stand here for hours, listening to the water flow over the stones...
Me too. It's one of my favorite spots as well.
I love fall.
I'll second that Mary Ellen. Happy Halloween too by the way.
I quite agree, Marty--many beautiful places along the I-5 corridor thru southern Oregon, but this area is one of the special ones.
These are truly nice Doug. It's a very small world.
Never been on this side yet I can certainly say that it looks truly fine.
It really is Jack. I'm lucky to live here.
