Sunset over Talimena Scenic Byway by pensrud

Drove up to Oklahoma over the weekend to hopefully capture the fall colors. What started in storms and a sketchy five hour drive turned into a weekend of rain, and weather. But, there were a few gaps in the weather and I kept my camera and fishing pole at the ready. When not capturing what colors and scenes I could I was catching bass and large rainbow trout.

Was a lovely time. Any time I can get out and see kingfishers flying by, among other birds, wild boar walking by, and catch some fish, all the while jumping, slipping, crawling, falling my way from rock to rock and fishing hole to fishing hole, is a great weekend. Wish I had more opportunities to capture some images, but it wasn’t meant to be. Was a weekend of memories as opposed to a weekend of keepers.

Cheers from Texas.

As sunset colour illuminated this tornadic supercell, lightning bolts started fires and smoke was drawn back into the storm updraft. Near Guymon, Oklahoma on May 31st 2007.
