Steel Creek Photos one year ago tomorrow

Steel Creek Photos one year ago tomorrow

The low side of Henderson Mountain facing north, is in view in this photo and also its reflection. If you look closely, you may be able to see the highway winding up the side of the mountain. Henderson Mountain is about 10 miles long and has several points. Photo taken from Parthenon, Arkansas:

Had a thunderstorm at 4 AM (1/3 inch of rain) but the lightning knocked out my power until 7 AM. The colors are quite pretty up north near the Missouri┬áborder, and down south in the Ouachita range but this sandstone on the Buffalo and Little Buffalo Boston Mountain peaks just does not make as stunning┬ácolors; as further north and south many years. We had a very wet summer and no hard freezes yet; but close. Many trees are still green but look to be turning brown and dry. I am not expecting much more color this year (just Maples) – HERE. Instead today I drove to some River access points and took a few reflections photos there (all 3 shot HDRs):

I took these photos about 20 minutes ago. An Eastern Bluebird and a Yellow-Rumped Warbler, and finally, a first summer Bluebird, as portraits using a Canon 7D and a Canon EF300L IS 2.8:
