Morning Walks

Hey Friends, Love my morning walks !!! Every morning some Doves are perched on wires. In the very same spot. Usually two, sometimes three. I try every morning to get a photo. This one isn't too bad. One day all 3 will line up just right, just for a photo.
Much further into WildWood Road, I came across this beautiful scene. A dry creek bed. The stones here in Salem, Va. are gorgeous ! BUT then................................
When I looked directly down (I'm standing on a little stone bridge) at a small puddle of water, that seems to be churning !!! I'm thinking must be a spring making the water move !
UH - Uwwwww.......Yukkie............YUK.............YUK.............Sorry folks .... I can't stand SNAKES!
I know they're good for something, but I still can't stand the thoughts of them. And I hate to look at "em. Can you see it in the upper right??
I'll post something a little more pleasant next time. Have a great weekend.
Happy Trails.

I love those stones--looks like a great place to sit and paint for a while. Do you do plein air? I only tried it once--too hot and too many bugs.

Snakes are okay with me, but they do make your heart beat faster. Enjoy your walks.

I'm just glad you noticed it was a snake before getting any closer. It's a neat picture, though.

Good Morn All, Thanks for taking the time to comment. I would imagine most bloggers wonder if anyone reads their posts. And the only way we know is if someone comments ! Thanks! Didn't look around too much this morn, needed to get back and work on stuff for the gallery before going to work!!!

Morning walks are great Sue. I'm glad you shared and I wouldn't be too happy about seeing a snake either....

It seems like you live near the perfect setting for your morning walks. I bet it starts your days off so nicely to spend time out in nature like that- snakes and all! ;-)

Marian-Ewwww is right but as Holly says it is a nice way to start my day. I love looking for the critters. Saw 3 white tails and some wabbits this morn.
Thanks all you guys.
