    Interesting that you were able to get a shot without a wind turbine in it! I'll riding on Amherst Island, next door to Wolfe, this weekend.

    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Here's my Wolfe Island shot - a lot of the Amherst folks are fighting to keep the turbines off their island.

    Yea, it is a power generation plant. They're in the midst of converting it from sea-water cooling to a closed cooling system to comply with new regulations. You can see the previous smokestacks behind the new ones in front there. I think it's almost operational now.

    I don't work there, but I think there is a certain functional beauty in those generation plants.

    I love the view from that bridge.

    As to the previous post: Techno-grunge has a beauty all it's own, when you learn to appreciate the look of rusted steel, escaping steam, chipped concrete, and industrial lighting. It's interesting to sit on my roof and view the local Refineries at night, between the high-pressure sodium lighting, the occasional mercury lighting, and the light from the exhaust burn-offs...

    ...hmmm I dunno: "Not ... great scenery"? It's nice to me. Although the mountain vistas are undeniably spectacular (and I'd go there in a second), I really like the southwest big skies and open land. Besides, there are mountains in NM, TX, AZ... :-) And speaking of the Pecos, there's usually water in it down 'round the Sheffield, TX area when I go through.

    DSCF0053.jpgAfter working a rest stop on the Starlight Spectacular Bike Ride for the last 5 years we decided to actually ride it! The Ride thru the Garden of Gods at night, with "NO external lights" was kinda spooky! The event was FUN but some of the "riders" were a bit insane about passing on both sides and racing in the dark! Those 2AM Pancakes sure tasted great, got home about 3:30AM. Sunday morning! The photo is my wife at the start line.
    Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!

    ^^this is a fabulous picture.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    I do try to keep my macro shots in focus, but sometimes when you are hand holding you get oddball pics like this!

    My wife and I spent some days with my son and his girlfriend at the inlaws cabin in Sweden; I rode down (180 k in some rain and a strong headwind). Had a really nice ride during the stay but chose to drive home since the wind turned completely. Sunsets are often nice down there.

    Keeping with the industrial photo theme, my ride this morning took me past one of the first Superfund sites. http://des.nh.gov/organization/divis...ies/gilson.htm
    Not much to see, but the sad, run down look of the monitoring buildings always strikes me as appropriate.

    No idea, but definitely some common wildflower.
