A Ride Report --with a Difference -----------
« on: June 13, 2011, 12:29:29 pm »
Went up to the Belfast area this week-end with my 2IC and did a few hundred kilometers of all types of terrian--Now usually i stop and take pictures of the area --Alas have a million of them as memories and the area's i have ridden through the years-
This time we decided to do something different for a change --Stop --Take pictures of the Scenery and one of the reason's we love to go out and ride -- :mwink:

The only Picture with a bike in it --- ::)

 

A Quite stream --somewhere between Lydenburg and Ohrigstad --



A reminder of Day's gone by --when time was not an issue----



Another one --- What stories they could tell --if only they could talk --



A Marlotti  in Full Flower --



A Dam overflowing --- Where many stories and tales have been told by Fly-Fisherman -of --The BIG one that got away-- ::)



Sunset over the Lake from the view of my balcony where i stayed--



Night falls over the water---



Morning shows the home of a trap-door spider ---



Wet grass wherever you walk --waiting for the sun to gobble it up --



A tall pine tree --reaches toward's the sky --



A spider web early in the morning sun---



A chopped down tree stump ---



A Mushroom ---



The winter has come and tree's are shedding leaves--



A few flowers on a tree --



A view from a pump house towards our cabin--



Just some memories---



In the cloak of time --Woven and covering this Earth --We as Human beings are but --A mere Strand-

So much more out there to see and appreciate-------
People DON'T Change --we just get to know them better

Such a pretty area.. even in winter brown...
The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.

Nice M! It's refreshing to see some pictures if the areas one rides through... without the bikes in.
I find that winter is one of the most scenic seasons when in the country, out of the smoggy shit-hole of town. ;D
I live in my own world...
