OT: photos of interest - not specifically about moto

We need a place to post photos that are off-topic, work safe, and different. Here's my first contribution.

Shot this a couple of days ago on the way to work (in my cage). Interesting alignment of subjects I don't expect to get again any time soon.

Somewhere Near Circleville Utah

An infamous train and bank robber grew up here.

This was taken February 2nd on the way to work. This is just south of the little town of Princeton, Iowa, looking SE. Looking over Mississippi River, which has not frozen over (reason for vapors rising). Conditions were about 2F (-17C), winds at about 20 mph (+30 kph). The parhelion, colloqually called a Sun Dog, is caused by light reflecting and refracting off ice crystals in the upper atmosphere. The steady winds align the crystals so they act in concert. Usually only visible in high latitudes and/or cold winters.

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

[trumpet]

It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me



Looking for Kathryn(?) Ross to peek out of the window

Delta sunrise on my way to work. Farm fields submerged in an amorphous lake of ground-eminating fog.

Leaving early in the morning to ride, has rewards... I seldom get to see the sunrise since I am not a morning person.
The morning mist was exceptionally heavy on this July morning.














The beginning of this Video shows how pretty the morning mist is to ride through... http://www.bswartz.net/341_part1.wmv

That's the video that starts with the misty-shower-singing scene, too. I always thought that was damn funny!
