Sunrise with a Red-Tailed Hawk perched~
It has had nothing to do with the first of the year, or the making of resolutions, for I don't do them. I try to set goals and this year it HAS to be LIFE CHANGING, or I will be in some worse troubles health-wise down the line. This is Not going to be easy for me and I would appreciate as many good thoughts going up on my behalf as possible and I am thanking you in advance! I am not sure if I have been in a depression, or a very low state, but I have not been able to function normally at all. I have always had troubles sleeping and the past month has been daunting for me. Then the stress that others have placed on me and my own, it too is enough to bring the best of us down.
My dear friend Sandy whom had never been to the Big Four Railroad Bridge joined me for a walk across the other day. It is now a walking bridge that crosses the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky over into Jeffersonville, Indiana, and this would be my fourth time to cross, and I was happy to show her what it was like. The temperature that morning began at 23' and yet the sunshine was brilliant and so we continued forward.
It was such a lovely time~

The brand new Lincoln (suspension) Bridge along side the older Kennedy Bridge beyond it above with the Big Four below~

Looking at the Big Four from the Indiana side of the river~
We stopped on the Indiana side of the river to regain our strength with lots of good coffee and a lovely brunch at the Olive Leaf Bistro~
Well of course there was ;) ...
As we were just about back on the Kentucky side of the bridge a lovely Coopers Hawk flew over and landed right above us to perch and look about for a few minutes~
Me and my Sweet Silveit. She turns 3 today January 9th. We love her so~
The lovely little American Kestrels have been quite plentiful just about everywhere I go and a pair is working the country lane just across the interstate from where we live. My home still has some Christmas adornments yet to put away and evidently we are not the only ones, as these were taken this week in our community. Female above and male below~
The handsome White-tailed buck below was at the Anchorage Trail a few days ago and just stood and looked at me as I took a few photos. The sun was just rising higher above~
Red-Fox Squirrels and Gray have been busy loading in supplies for the long Winter months. A domestic cat hunts for Field Mice and a gentleman rides his horse in my horse country. The Red-Shouldered Hawk and American Robin were warming themselves in the morning sunshine~
The first image is as we traveled to market before sunset and the last two were on our return at sunset. Have a blessed week, and thank you so much for everything.
These were not taken with my Nikon 7000, but my cell phone camera...not too shabby~
