SWF>>>>Sunrise on the road

These are some shots I took of last Saturday's sunrise while my hubby was driving. We were on the way to Barnegat Lighthouse State Park in New Jersey. LOL, it is not very easy to take clear photos while the car is moving 65 miles an hour. Oh, and I almost forgot my left hand is still in a splint. So I was trying to take these shots one handed with the car moving. They might not be the sharpest shots but I just love the colors.

The photo below looks like a scene from Hitchcock's movie The Bird's. LOL, I know its awful but I think it is funny. 
There was no way this one would come out clear, between the car moving and the birds moving it just wasn't possible.










To see more beautiful skies from around the world, check out Skywatch Friday. Thanks to the hosts: Sylvia, Wren, Sandy, Fishing Guy and Klaus. Thank you for stopping by my skywatch and I hope you have a great weekend.

Shenandoah's White Oak

First, I must mention these are my hubby's photos, he asked me to post them on one of my Watery Wednesday  post. On Jan 25 he decided to take a day trip to Shenandoah's White Oak Trail. This is his favorite trail to see the waterfalls while they are frozen. I was still at home recovering from my hand surgery and in no condition to go walking around on snow and ice. So today you are Traveling with Mike instead of Traveling with Eileen.



These do look much nicer if you click on the photos for a larger image.






























































BRRRR, it looks very cold!  I hope you enjoy hubby's photos and he will get a kick out of reading your comments.

Thanks for stopping by and please make sure to visit more Watery Wednesday post and thanks to 2sweetnsaxy for hosting.

Costa Rica critters

Since my hand surgery I have not been taking new photos so I am showing some of my favorite Costa Rica critters from my archives. We went to Costa Rica in March of 2010 and I loved it there. The critters, birds and scenery were all wonderful.  These shots are from a wildlife refuge cruise at Cano Negro, it was a river cruise that that took us to the border of Nicaragua. The photos were taken from a moving boat so they are not the best quality.

   It was neat to see this monkey hanging from the tree eating the flowers.




















This guy looks all pooped out, doesn't he?
 
















                                    

  AWWWW , look at the shy little baby, isn't it cute? He is hiding by his momma's neck.

Water Buffalo, they produce milk that makes mozzarella cheese.


                                          Bats all lined up, they blend in well with the tree.


            
   
                                                                                    

                                       This Blond Howler Monkey was one of my favorite sightings. I believe the blond howler monkey is more of a rare sighting.


Please visit Misty Dawn's Camera Critters to see more cute critters. Thanks to Misty Dawn for hosting and thanks for stopping by to see my critters.  Have a great weekend!
