Brush With the Bridge, Part 2

October 31, 2011

Saturday was a perfect day, and I was able to spend some time on the Old Railroad Bridge spanning our two local counties, photographing the fall colors along the river, and doing a quick watercolor sketch of one view from the bridge. I had a chance to chat with a few local artists who were set up on the bridge painting.

I took a few shots on the bridge and from the bridge . . .

Then Jim and I had a picnic lunch along the wooded path and I took more pictures.

After that, we took a ride a few miles along the Natchez Trace Parkway, across the state line into Tennessee, and I took still more pictures.

These were just a few of the colorful fall scenes. What a beautiful day all the way around.

    Love, love the fall photos and that beautiful bridge. What a great day you had!
    I am finally back in my house after spending 2 days with my son and his wife. I had no power (heat and light) since our unusual early Nor’easter on Sat. night, so what a relief to get back to my art supplies, computer and my bed, now that power back on today. (Wed), so your posting is fodder for the creative withdrawal.
    Thanks, Patq

      Oh my, Pat! I’m sorry that storm interrupted your life. Hope things are back to normal soon. My next post is dedicated to you and others who went through the early snow.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
