CASTING A LONG SHADOW
I don't know why it fascinated me to take this photo across the ravine. My shadow is falling perhaps 100 feet from where i am standing.
What a beautiful day for a drive. I made a little run to Branson to do some spring shopping. I was planning to photograph the masses of redbud trees in bloom, but it got dark before I got that far south. Yes, I could have taken the photos on the way UP to Branson (earlier in the day) but I was rather in a hurry to get to Branson before the stores closed! Quite a day-trip when you don't leave town until after noon. hehe I won't go into the details that required two trips in one weekend ;)
After sunset I watched a thunderhead build in the south sky as i headed back to Little Rock. It was an awesome panoramic display, with the lightening bouncing back and forth across the sky, almost like an echo. It seems this is the storm that moved through central Arkansas to do considerable damage in Tennessee later in the night.
the road to Branson ... where i lost my hat :(
... bright spot in a drab landscape ...
Spring is here.
