Drive-by shootings....

Are these what you expected when you seen the title 'Drive-by shootings' or did you know me well enough to know it was a play on words? We left before daylight this morn, and I was hoping to see a wonderful display. Little did I dream of what a display of color I would see. It was very frustrating though, to be traveling and not able to stop and take my time composing some shots. But see that dark streak in the sky on the right side starting at the trees--that was actually there; we do not know what caused it. Just wanted you to know it wasn't my camera or me....
All of these were taking while traveling the back roads of Indiana and Michigan...I know the sunrise shot was taken in Indiana, and the second shot in Michigan. But as for the barns, I am not sure which were taken where. I don't think they are too bad considering we were going 60 mph almost every time I tried to take a picture. As you can imagine, there are some that are not suitable for publishing, though I think I will use a few for Paintbox Pictures.
These are just a forerunner of what I hope is to come. I have several from this morn that is going to be for Sky Watch Friday the next time I am lucky enough to participate...which will hopefully be next week. And I have even more barn shots. I would have never made it this far had I allowed myself to stop and take pictures. I seen so many awesome barns that I could spend the next month taking pictures of nothing but barns.
And on up here in Michigan in some spots, there is much more color to the trees. They were too beautiful for words. With them and the fields being ready to harvest, and just the fall feel to the day--it made me feel like I was part of the autumn glow or something. I don't think I have ever had so much fun traveling....but for now my bottom is sore from sitting so long. My husband is done asleep...I need to get some sleep myself, but have a photo I want to post to The World in Black and White before I get ready for bed.

A beautiful sunrise!!
I like the first barn even though it has seen better days. I like the stone silo and the way the boards at the top are almost like windows. A house like that with windows would certainly be cool.
Have a wonderful time Rose.

These are wonderful photos. I love the last one of the red barn. Here in my part of the world it is spring and we are experiencing amazing colours as well on the flowering shrubs and trees.

Nice work. Great shots, especially when placed against the maroon / rust background. I attended grad school at U of M in the 1970s, and it is a beautiful state.

I came across your blog while blog surfing using the “next blog” button on the Nav Bar of blogger.com. I am continually fascinated by the types of blogs that exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people all over the globe express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
