Willy Nilly Friday 5 and Sky Watch Friday

1. Pickwick Lake (Sky Watch Friday)
Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, November 6, 2017
We have had heavy fog that lasts into the afternoon several days this week. This is the view of Pickwick Lake when we were there on Monday eating lunch with friends at the Pickwick Inn Restaurant.

2. Autumn Color
Colbert County, Alabama, USA, November 3, 2017
Cloudy days did not interfere with our enjoyment of the colorful leaves last week.

3. The Most Unusual Thing This Week
Booneville, Mississippi, USA, November 8, 2017
Did you notice the radio dial? 91.9 WOWL and 95.3 WADI are local radio stations.

4. Wildlife
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, November 9, 2017
I noticed movement at the edge of a small lake, zoomed in, and discovered this female Mallard Duck, Anas platyrhynchos, in the shadows.

5. Veterans Day is November 11
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, November 9, 2017
This replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall (Washington, DC) was dedicated at Veterans Park in Tupelo last Saturday. The names of every American soldier killed in the war are written on the Wall. It is 60% the size of the original.

"Freedom is not free"

Have a wonderful week-end!

  1.'s difficult to find fall color, our first snow arrived last night. Have a great weekend.

    1. Wind and rain has knocked a lot of the Autumn color off our trees

  2. It finally feels like fall here -- better late than never, but we don't have the beautiful color -- everything just stays green! Love to see your fall color. I've always thought that fog was mystical (as long as you don't have to drive in it). Wonderful images. Happy Friday!

  3. Nifty Radio van. Local radio is the best.

  4. How wonderful that they are dedicating the replica wall! We've been to the original twice and to the moving wall once. It's always very emotional or my husband. I am glad there is a permanent replica there in Tupelo.

  5. It is so good that they have built a replica wall.

  6. Very pretty lake - I like fog (most of the time) it adds an bit of mystery to photographs. Pretty Fall Colors, Brightly Colored Van, Nice Memorial images.

  7. Oh my - your bench photo has reminded me how long i wore that POW Bracelet . . . . Brave Soldiers.

  8. All photos excellent. The one moody Pickwick is exceptional

  9. Pretty captures of the fall colors. Would be fun to be able to tune in and take a listen to those local stations!

  10. Nice fall color; amazing that you and we in upstate New York are having color at about the same time. Thank you for the shoutout to our vets; freedom is indeed not free.

  11. Looks like gorgeous days, in your area!

  12. Love that van! What a cute idea. And, I love those fall leaves. Isn't Fall just the grandest part of the year?

  13. Nice tribute for Veteran's Day. I'm your newest follower.

  14. Really a random 5...and I like them.

  15. I love fog, it is so rare around here it is a novelty. I swear that one day I will visit North America and see an autumn forest in all its colour. The photos are always gorgeous.

    Thank you so much for sharing these lovely photos.

    Best wishes,

  16. Beautiful pictures but the quote : Freedom is not free is so true !!
