NCR Trail & more

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

These are some photos from our walk on the nearby NCR Trail.  It was an old railway and has been turned into a bike-hike and running trail..Sometimes we see horse back riders too.  I am also sharing some moon and sky shots for my Skywatch Friday post..


We saw a few woodpeckers like the Redbellied Woodie above.


A section of the trail crosses the stream but I took this shot mainly for my Good Fence post.. I hope this works as a fence photo.


There were lots of berries around and some yellow colors still left on the trees..


Some more autumn trees and contrails in the sky above..


I like the jet trails in this shot, a pretty blue sky during our walk on the NCR trail.



Another shot of the Redbellied woodpecker.


Another section of winding stream, a fence, more pretty red berries..


The moon shot is from Nov 8th.. a pretty almost full moon. I hope you enjoyed our walk. Thanks for coming along..


To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences


Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.

Oo! Nice moon shot. I tried with no success to get a good photo earlier this year with the harvest moon.

Phil Slade said...

That looks like a good long quiet trail with lots of spots to stop and bird Eileen. Love the red belly of course, and as usual your moon shot is spectacular.

Stephanie said...

I enjoyed your walk through your lens very much. :-))

What a beautiful trail, and the fall color is outstanding! Our leaves are all gone (and it's very WHITE in my neck of the woods!)
Happy Thanksgiving, Eileen. :)

EG CameraGirl said...

Any trail that has a red-bellied woodpecker is one I want to visit over and over and over. ;)

Happy Thanksgiving, Eileen!

Missy George said...

Love the woodpecker..Beautiful place..Happy Thanksgiving..

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Hello Eileen,
thanks for your visit at my place :)
I read here that you're not good at taking pictures. Ha! Your pictures tell a different story :) And you're able to take a damn good shot of the moon, which I (or is it my lousy camera?) am not able to.
I just would have liked to see some of the red berries from a little closer ;)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Carver said...

Happy Thanksgiving! I love the shots of the woodpeckers and a magnificent moon shot.

Georgette Sullins said...

I felt like I was watching a play. Act 1 the beautiful foliage, enter the woodpecker, Act II the sky, Act III, enter the wood pecker again and the moon, the beautiful moon. Nice post.

Happyone said...

Very nice group of pictures.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Pat said...

Love the Red-bellied Woodpecker. The trail looks so pretty with all those red berries scattered throughout.

Felicia said...

You still had some pretty autumn scenery at that time. I wonder if the red berries are winterberry. the bridge/fence is pretty too.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Eileen.

Some lovely photos of a gorgeous landscape. we have a similar walking trail, that was a railway once upon a time and it's some beautiful scenery too.
And love the shot of the moon - that was the one I missed because we were under cloudy, stormy skies here.

Wonderful captures as always Eileen .... We live on different sides of the globe and I always enjoy seeing life from your lovely corner of the world especially the wealth of bird-life.
