Just Another Road Trip

With a week of 90˚ weather, I'm trying to fit in a few road trips before the pavement buckles and sucks in all the cars. I hit Boscobel and Highland yesterday and people were getting ready for the heat by chilling out.


More fun with silhouettes. There appears to be a creeping entity in the lake 


A Charlie Brown Pine


I've been taking Black & White shots in Creative Auto and my laptop keeps changing them to color. Nevertheless, I persist


A deceptively serene Wisconsin River

P.S.

Special comment request, what do you think?

  1. I don't like 90-degree weather, but I like lakes and all summer fun.

    1. The light down that swampy drive intrigued me, DS.

  4. Like Dragonstar, I like the b&w white and the reflections in the water.

    1. I love black and white as well, TFG. It was a countdown to hellacious weather and I was drawn to the river.

    1. I guess I better look up "hectares" Jim.

  7. Hi Jeanna, I do like B&W photos, but I think that your photo of the Wisconsin River looks better in colour. It looks so fresh and green. I'd love to know how the Charlie Brown pine got it's name? Do you know?

    1. I think black and white photogs always imagine what something would look like in greyscale. The WI RIver probably is still fresh and green but I haven't been in or on it in some time. That Charlie Brown pine got it's name from me because I drove by, took some pictures and thought it looked dry and kind of scraggly like Charlie Brown's hapless Christmas tree.

    1. I like that one too, James. It's nice when the ones you spend time with turn out.

  9. Keep right on resisting girl! In your photos and in other parts of life;>) ... and for godess' sake don't get sucked into one of those heat traps ).....You really do live in a beautiful part of the country when it's not too hot or too cold.... take advantage of the perfect days. (We're in East Texas right now and I doubt if there are any perfect days here frankly. This evening the wind is blowing like crazy and it is hot hot hot. But the RV Park has good wifi so that's good. Because after riding in the car all day I really need to sit some more .

    1. This is no time of year to be in Texas, what I remember was thinking it was as hot and humid as home. And then I visited the desert (which I often spell incorrectly). I saw the coolest coral colored snake there. I'm thinking it was somewhere in West Texas though. At least you have wifi, I hope you have pools as well. I'm looking forward to following your progress.

  10. I could use a bit of your heat right now! It's winter here in New Zealand but I'm sure it doesn't get as cold as your winter! Your photos are fantastic and I'm loving the Charlie Brown tree!

    1. With heat indexes at 98˚, it's allll yours, Betty. It's funny I always think it's not as cold as MN and the Twin Cities hit 100 last week. They keep saying rain and I've see very little. It looked to me as if that poor tree could use a good drenching.

  11. B&W shots look amazing! Have a wonderful week.
