Seeing How Today Goes...

in beautifulsunday •  7 months ago  (edited)

I think I must've sat at this computer, for a couple of hours, every day this week. I didn't manage to post anything as I just sat in front of it and just felt totally uninspired. Kind of like how I am still feeling right now but, hey, it's been seven days now so I really should make a post. I guess I just haven't been feeling happy as I've not been feeling too good (both physically and mentally). So, I thought to myself this morning that I would post about one of my visits to Loch Raven Reservoir (in Baltimore County, Maryland) which is, usually, a happy outing for me. All of my following photos were taken from the vehicle that I was riding in as in many spots there is no parking but I think the photos came out nicely and I hope you think so also.

My first four photos were taken before getting to the Loch Raven Reservoir Dam and I took these in August. I really love the ducks in the background of the first two photos and the reflections on the water in all of the photos.





Next up, are a couple of Dam photos. There was hardly any Dam water flowing over the Dam which I thought was Dam strange. You know what else? I wish they would cut the Dam foliage overgrowth back so people could get a better Dam view. Okay! I'll stop now with my Dam references and get to the Dam



Once past the Dam there are some winding roads that lead up to a bridge. The road is a little winding but also very scenic.




I took this photo as we were crossing the bridge to the other side of Loch Raven which is where we stop to get out and walk around.


Sorry, but I have to save the "walking around" photos for another day. My next photo though was taken as we began the ride back over the same bridge from the other side.


The next two photos show a grouping of trees that I love seeing on the way out. If you see them at the right time then you will get a nice sunny flare in the photo.



My last photo is right where the Loch Raven Dam is but from the opposite side of the road.


That's it folks! Thanks for sticking around and putting up with me and my moods!

Thank you @ace108 for #beautifulsunday!!
Thank you @c0ff33a for #sublimesunday!!

What the heck! Since ya'll stuck around this long, I'll show you one last photo from the grouping of trees. Turned out I was there at just the right time! 😉

Hello @deerjay
I'm in the same boat as you are. Been in hibernation mode for winter as well as getting over the flu.
Plus it's been cold and raining mostly, so I haven't been out taking images.
Happy New Year @deerjay

Thank you very much @chromiumone!! I have been thinking of you and hope you are over that flu now. Hibernation sounds about right this time of year. Happy New Year to you as well! 💖

I had to look quite hard to find the ducks.

Thanks @ace108! They show up best in my first photo. I probably should not have mentioned them as they are small to see or posted the photos so they could be enlarged..sorry.

Do not worry. Probably he is the only one person, who actually read the blog post. Writing about the contents of your photos is usually a good test to see how many people actually read your blog posts.
Okay, probably not in my case, but in general. No matter what I post, what I write about, almost no one cares about my posts. Except my dPoll posts (polls). This is why I nowadays very rarely post blog posts with Steemit, Busy, eSteem, SteemPeak and with other Steem blockchain interfaces.

Thanks @xplosive!! It can be pretty discouraging at times. Sometimes it is probably best to throw in the towel or maybe just quit certain tags. Time will tell...

These are beautiful photos Dee! Seeing them certainly adds sunshine to this overcast winter day.

I got a chuckle out of your play on the word ‘DAM’.

Wishing you good health and much happiness for 2020! 💕

Thanks so much Jo!! I would say that my play on that word never gets old but I think I may have come "DAM" close this 😁

Hey @deerjay, here is a little bit of BEER from @pixresteemer for you. Enjoy it!

Thank you very much @beerlover and @pixresteemer!! 😊

Your beautiful photos remind me of how warm summer is and give me hope. Can you tell its been cold here? lol

Thanks so much @debralee!! I think this cold is making my bones Last two days haven't been too bad here though. Just gotta make it through January and February..mostly. 😉

deranged You just received DERANGED @deerjay Keep up the great work, view all your tokens at

Thank you very much @deranged.coin and @chromiumone!! 🙂

I've been having a similar lack of inspiration for a similar reason @deerjay, but seeing all these summertime shots has me in a much better frame of mind! I'm a sucker for a good reflection shot, and yours are Dam good! I'm guessing we'll be seeing your walking snaps some Wednesday in the future (and I bet you still have a few more awesome tree photos for an upcoming Tuesday), so I'll be sure to keep my eyes open. Love that sunny flare, and so glad I stuck around (how could I not?) for that final beauty!

If I don't catch you before, hope you have a wonderful new year! 🤗

Thank you so much @traciyork!! You slipped that Dam word in quite I've had too much going on lately which has really got me in a not so great mood. I'm glad you stuck around to see that last one aka a zinger! 😊 😁

I've missed your presence on Steemit and can relate to the lack of motivational "oomph"! Not sure if it's due to the holidays, weather, a combination of both, or something else entirely.

Take some downtime to recharge and take care of yourself but don't stay away long!
Pinky promise!🤙♡🤙

All the best to you & your family in the New Year 2020! @deerjay 🧨🥂💫🎊🍾

Thanks so much Nina!! Combo of weather and health on top of a crappy year. This year ain't starting so great either. Knew it was gonna end with another funeral or start with one. I may do a post about some of that soon or not..I'm feeling so wishy washy lately. Anyway, I hope you had a wonderful New Year celebration and wishing you a beautiful 2020! 🤗 😊

Finding inspiration with writing posts is such a challenge sometimes. But, I see you plucked out a great post with some lovely photos. We always seem to be able to do it on Steemi.

Thanks so much @angiemitchell!! Trying to keep my head up and not disappear..for too long anyway. 😉 😊

@tipu curate

Upvoted 👌 (Mana: 5/10 - need recharge?)

Thanks so much @tipu and @traciyork!! 💖
