Landscapes or Waterscapes – CFFC

As promised, I am going to limit the length of my normal posts when mentioning or reblogging promotional posts for my new book. I will be a guest at Gwen Plano’s blog today.

Once again, I am participating in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. According to Cee:

“This week our topic is celebrating Landscapes or Waterscapes. Have fun.”

I think we can do that.

    • Thanks Judy. Keeping this country beautiful is such and easy thing to do, but so many people abuse the landscape with their trash. I’m glad you like these photos. I can’t imagine the number of landscape shots you could take on the way to the grocery store. Have a great week.

  1. Great selection of “scapes”. I also like the photo of the tobacco barn in the scalding sun, and I like the desolate tobacco barn in winter. Neat shot of Lady Liberty. The ocean shot during winter is just beautiful. Lots of memories in these photos.

    But the first pic of the trees lining the football field is mesmerizing. This is my favorite.

    Happy Monday Dan, with a happy week to follow. A couple of weeks ago it was below 40* when we got up. Today it’s 80*! Mother Nature has a weird sense of humor!

    • I’m glad you liked these, Ginger. I was going to do a comparison of the tobacco fields then, and what they look like now, but it’s too sad to call what we have today a landscape. I couldn’t find a flag, but Lady Liberty sends the message.

      The photo you like best is tied with the tobacco shed as my favorite.

      I got up to walk early, but it’s just on the edge of rain here, and it’s gross outside. I hope your week is off to a nice start – stay cool.

  2. Hi Dan – I love waterscapes intertwined with landscapes … England has lots as you can imagine – but I’d love to see more the USA’s areas – lovely selection here – have a good week – cheers Hilary

    • Thanks Hilary. I almost included a photo of the container dock at Felixtowe, but it wasn’t a very good photo. My friend took me there when I visited him because he knows I like cranes. I was happy to see this challenge from Cee.

  3. Each one of these has a personality all its own, and all these different aspects of water are sobering these days when we are learning to see it as a limited resource. I especially love the image of the barn in snow and the blazing water in Orlando. Thanks again for a great tour!

    • Thanks Maureen. It was hard to choose photos for this challenge. I’m glad you like those. Others like other photos, so I guess that means I picked the right group. I hope your week is off to a good start.

  4. I love both waterscapes and landscapes. I usually prefer naturescapes over cityscapes, but one of my favorite “scapes” is the view of Pittsburgh at night when you come out of the Ft. Pitt Tunnel.

    Loved your photos, Dan.

  5. Excellent pictures, Dan. I couldn’t decide on a favorite – it’s a toss between the first one and the one in Orlando.
    I’ll now travel over to Gwen’s place.

  6. These are all wonderful, Dan–and from all over the country, too. Of course, I like the Florida photos, but that first photo with the misty trees and then that beautiful tobacco shade photo–so pretty, both of them. Heading over to Gwen’s place now! Have a great week.

    • I’m glad you liked that , John. In the late 70s, I lived very close to the Queens side of that bridge. I used to ride my bike through a little park that was on the east side. I crossed it numerous time (pre-EZ-Pass) and I spend a lot of time looking out at the water while waiting in the toll lanes.

  7. It is hard to choose a favourite picture because they are also good but I am particularly drawn to the mist under the trees in the first picture. Makes me think of misty mornings.

  8. Gorgeous pictures, Dan. I especially love the trees along the football field and agree with you, the tobacco sheds with the sheets blowing in the wind is sublime.
