Scenes from a Sunday Joy Ride in Rockbridge County


Can anyone tell me how to enable "click on the pictures" to enlarge?

This week in our "Beyond Beyond (BB2) eCourse one of are assignments was to create a custom package in the "Print Mode" of Lightroom. It was such fun and a real learning experience. These photos were taken with my iPhone while I was on my Sunday Joy Ride. After breakfast with Buddy he went to work, and I decided to take the long way home which ended up taking way over an hour because I got lost. I could not believe my eyes. There was still snow on the ground and slushy, icy snow on sections of the road. The real treat was there were few cars on the road, and I was able to stop and takes lots of pictures of different barns in all colors and conditions.

  8. In regard to photos, "When you start a post and you download pictures, click on the edit Html tab and download your pictures in the Html tab and not the Compose tab."
    Lovely assortment of olde barn and hay bales Genie - Love the clouds and you are lucky - you've hardly a drop of snow and we're up to our butts in it. Have a great day.

  9. Getting lost was a good thing for you here because you found wonderful photo ops. (As long as you eventually found your way home.) I love a no- particular-destination drive! Especially when it's not crowded.

  12. I loce what you saw! Gorgeous colors. You see up here all we see are white and brown! Rarely does the sun shine during the winter. So good to see the blue sky!
    Well Spring training has begun and it won't be long now will it? I see Jeter and Mo are in fine form so far. Hope they don't reinjure. Switcher has gone to Cleveland which is within 100 miles of us, and he'll be happy since he hails from Columbus. They'll enjoy him. I really don't care what happens to A-Rod either. Too much theatrics in his life. Maybe Youkilis will keep 3rd base hopping! Hafner comes over from Cleveland too and will be the DH. OK better get going. I have chicken soup simmering on the stove that I made from scratch. We raised our own meat chickens last Fall. Take care.
