What’s good: Hay in the field

After a long week of too many meetings, it felt good to head out into the countryside this evening. I spent about 45 minutes stalking three young bucks playing in a field but they were too far away to make a good picture. I headed over to my favorite hill where I made a pretty fence photo back in April. The hill has a meadow and some unique trees and a great views. You’ll see a picture of the trees […]

What’s good: Why did the deer cross the creek?

I was out on a 39-mile bicycle ride today getting for the two-day 170 MS fundraiser in two weeks. I still need help with the money, please donate something. We were zipping along Burnt Mills Road in Bedminster and as we crossed a creek, I saw a deer walking through the water. In the 90’s, I spent about a year learning the habits of white tail deer so I could make great pictures of them. When conditions were right, I […]

What’s good: Vulture keeping watch

There’s this old barn I pass on my regular bicycle route. Frequently there is a turkey vulture sitting on the roofless section. During this morning’s ride, there it was.

What’s good: A horse statue in the middle of a field

When I first saw it, I almost crashed my bike. I was riding along a backroad, not really sure what town it is, I’m guessing Readington. Out in the middle of a field, nothing else in sight, is a statue of a horse rearing up. I’ve gone past it many times since that first sighting, and when others see it for the first time, they have the same reaction. Why would someone put that in the middle of a field? […]

What’s good: A mid-day bicycle ride

It was another beautiful spring day and I was able to get in a mid-day bicycle ride. I did about 25 miles, trying to get rid of the winter fat in time for a two-day MS fundraising ride along the NJ coast in May. In cycling, there is an official term for someone over 200 pounds: a Clydesdale. Well, you can call me Clyde and Dale, because I’m both, although I refuse to get on the scale and see how […]

What’s good: Seeing more red on a sunny day

It was a beautiful day today, cool, clear and sunny. I took a little drive after work out along the route where I do my normal bicycle ride. There are a couple of barns that look cool, so I went to see how the barns look in the low afternoon light. The sun was pretty low and light shadows were mixing with the sunlight hitting the end of the red barn. One small window is all that disturbed the red. […]

What’s good: Chasing a hot air balloon

When I left work in East Brunswick, it was drizzling and pretty chilly. As I got closer to home the rain stopped and I could see the clouds were starting to break in the west. I saw something strange in the sky and drove a couple of blocks out of my way to see what it was. There was a hot air balloon floating to the west. They aren’t uncommon, the country’s largest summer balloon festival happens about where the […]
