I really loved getting to see the young geese with the moms, there were so many I was surprised.
Watching them take off and land following the curve of the river is really beautiful...now if I could just master the fast action of them flying with my camera :O)

I had no idea what to expect. It turned out to be really cool.
It was a packed house
The band and a sea of Orange team spirit that never, sat down. It was awesome watching these kids, they would start chanting and jumping up and down non stop...
Professional team fans have nothing on UVA kids. This crow loves their team, they wanted to win, they were excited and loud about it!
You could literally feel the energy from everyone's excitement, we loved it! And they kicked butt!

It actually turned out to be pretty cool sitting there sipping my soda watching all these little birds twitter about, zoom away as cars went thru and rush back...It was quite relaxing and was a highlight of my day...
And as I sat there watching the birds, General Lee pulled thru.. This was one bad ass car and I loved it. It had all kinds of details I couldn't capture...This car looks right at home in Virginia.

This morning, sitting across from the cemetery at the Hollymead Center. I just liked the way the sun was shining thru the trees.

I went to Gordonsville to explore. I found out a Saturday in historic Gordonsville is a busy place. I got a few pics in when I realized one of the local police kept giving me drive by's... Apparently a petite brunnette taking pics of buildings and train tracks is suspicious activity.
So between the officer, the heavy traffic, and lack of parking spaces I decided to call it a day in Gordonsville. So I went to visit our soon to be neighboorhood.
I discovered we're going to get to do some beaver watching, seriouosly... This is not even a half of a mile from the house. No beavers spotted today but still, I'm so excited; I've always wanted to see beavers in nature...
Even going to the grocery store was cool....This was the view from Pantops today. I wasn't the only one taking pics either. I was jealous of the gal with the 35mm with the 6"lens :O)

I love this small silo, it sits on the edge of a river.
I have two things I really love on Proffit Road...One of them is the wooden one lane bridge that covers the railroad tracks... I think what I really love about this bridge is the wooden slates you drive on. When you drive over them you can hear them move and thud. Sometimes I open the window just so I can hear the thudding of the wood as I drive over it. If you click on the pic for a biggie view you can see the wood
My other favorite thing is this beautiful Red Barn. It's maybe 500 yards from the wooden one lane bridge. As I took pictures of the barn I could hear the thudding of the bridge from the constant car traffic... I could have stayed there with the red barn for quite a while just to listen to the thudding sound
Proffit Road is off of Rt29 at the 29/Airport Road intersection and goes down to Rt20.

You've seen this tree before, probably more than once but I'm having a serious love affair with this tree. It's so beautiful full of leaves or totally naked showing off it's gorgeous textured bark. I never tire of looking at it.
But the day ending so beautifully...I decided to take Profit road home. I love driving this road, despite the winding curves. It's such a visual stretch...Today since it was still light out I stopped at Baker Butler school to get some pics.
I lied, more sunset....isn't it incredible!!
A pretty good day
