Drive-by shots are such fun... Yours are beautiful, Elk. Looks like autumn is still hanging on there... Happy Days :o) ((HUGS))

I love love LOVE this! I can picture the safety, the security I feel when someone else is driving and I am free to just look at all that's out there. And the skies that look like water remind me of being a child - sometimes I thought the skies were water, if we rounded an unknown corner and the blueness, the sheer height of sky surprised me.

Fabulous!!

these drive-bys are fantastic - really makes a great set. i took an extra 2 days off work so i am feeling cozy in my home decorating with Christmas tunes playing and a fire going.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Oh I love the feeling of travelling through interesting places, watching the colours of the trees and grasses but there is also that wonderful comfort of arriving home ... this post captures that feeling so well.

Jewels said...

Oh wow, I can feel the ride!

puna said...

Mary said...

Oh my, so beautiful -- words and images both!

Liss said...

I love the movement in your images, combined with words there is a real sense of heading home and the feeling it brings to be so close but not yet there.

maccandace said...

Getting home is always the best part of the trip, imho. Lovely shots.

Gayle at Planet M Files said...

Lovely views on your way home!

Claire said...

the slanted angles, the blur, the colour palette.

i like.

the last photo takes me back to a town called Nylstroom. i loved the graveyard. just beyond its perimetre there was a road and a path just like this.

i would walk there, hand in hand with mom, dad, grandad, granny and jock the dog.

Barefoot from Heaven said...

Oh I always do that too, taken pics when driving....okay yes sometimes at the same time but don't tell anybody.

margieandkath said...

i love taking photos out the window of the car. you never can really see what they will be like until you get home and load them on the computer.

MaryAnn Ashley said...

Looks like a wonderful drive... I"m cozy this morning with my cup of tea, happy to have visited you.

Kimmie said...

These pictures are amazingly beautiful ..... you are gradually giving me a whole new perspective on Texas. I never thought it could be so cool :)

e.o.w. said...

Oh, thank you for that! It looks windy there? I hope you had a joyful Thanksgiving!
