Shadow Shot Sunday ~ road trip

On the road again...

I went along on a foliage drive Saturday with a dear bloggy friend and fellow Connecticut resident, Linda, who isn't afraid to stop at any time to park anywhere along the way to grab just the right photo.
And I gladly joined her as we hopped out of the car, me with my point and shoot, her with her beautiful SLR to capture an autumnal moment. At one point we even braved the aroma of a nearby cow farm.
It was a lot of fun.

Today I offer some "through the windshield photos" I took whilst we wound our way up through the hills of Litchfield County in rural northwestern Connecticut.

Take note of the lack of foliage. Some of the trees we passed looked downright dead, as if they had not had any leaves on them in recent memory. Did we get there too late? Or had they been like that for years?
Hmmm...

See many more shadowy pix at Shadow Shot Sunday, hosted by our awesome Aussie friend Tracy at Hey Harriet.

Green with envy ← I am! Even though it seems the trees are also green. I'll bet you had a wonderful time and I can't wait to see more photos!

What a shame there wasn't a lovely display of autumn foliage for your trip ... but at least you still had fun!

Linda said...

We did fine the occasional bit of foliage so the search wasn't a total bust but even if that had been the case, it was so much fun it didn't really matter!

I fear that you may doubt my driving abilities after yesterday, though! Honestly, I'm usually a better driver - I don't know what got into me or WHERE that stop sign came from!!

Linda said...

Oops ... make that 'find' not 'fine'. Oy ... blogging without coffee should be illegal!

Patti said...

I actually forgot about the missed stop sign. Really! I was just having a good time.

Linda said...

I'm lucky I didn't get us killed - that would have made for a BAD blog story, eh? Not that either of us would have been around to tell it!

Beautiful fall photos. How lucky you are to have a friend that loves to stop along the way to take pictures. I nned a friend like that. My family and friends give me a hard time about stopping all the time for pictures. Oh well, its what makes me - ME!
Thanks for sharing!!

Terrific shadow shots, Patti! And how fun! Have to admit I'm a tad envious of the opportunity! Your photos are the next best thing to being there! Hope you've had a great weekend!

Your road trip sounds like it was a lot of fun. It's great to be able to take such trips with photography friends. People who are not too into taking photos just don't get the importance of having to continually stop to capture all sorts of things along the way!

Lovely photos! The trees look quite dramatic without any leaves! Have a great week ahead :)
