My Photo Sunday #2

Along Highway 55, heading north from Boise... frost covered most all the vegetation. We haven't seen the sun in what seems to be a week. It's been freezing! At one point, we pulled over and stopped so I could try to get some shots. The frost was very pretty...

A hazy, overcast, foggy, cold day in Idaho... This is the Payette River along Hwy 55, looking south back towards Boise. We were about 20 minutes north of Boise here.
Pulling over whenever the opportunity arised, the SUN finally showed it's face! We had heard, if we got above the Treasure Valley, above the inversion, we could find the sunshine... Along the Paytte River...

North of Smith's Ferry is this single arched bridge. It's been one of my favorite photo opps for as long as I can remember. I wish I knew more about the bridge to share here with you...

We turned around here and headed back to Boise. After some dinner out, we found these Canadian Geese at Julia Davis Park in Boise.

This is a pond at Julia Davis Park. It was starting to get late...

The moon was rising and we decided to get home... Oh! And, as you can see, the sky cleared up in Boise too. We had a great day trip today.

I don't like snow very much that is why I live in Florida but you make it look so beautiful and inviting! I love your close shot of the frost and the pond. Oh, and the last picture of the tree canopies and the moon, is a perfect haiku material! You surely can paint a million words with your pictures. Keep them coming and thank you for sharing! http://journals.aol.com/dcmeyer420/DearDiary/

Your pictures are so beautiful, can I ask you how do you post more than one picture on your entry at a time, or can you point me in the direction that will give me directions to do that, I know how to use FTP, and add one picture but don't know how to add more than one.
