Red Bluff & Personal Holidays

This past Sunday, Charles and I went to see Red Bluff, in Morgantown, MS (just over an hour from home.) It was amazing...







Allegedly, any trees growing in the bluffs slid down from the top of the ridge at some point.



Here's a shot for scale--there's a person standing on the top of the cliff. Click for larger view.

The main road had to be moved (obviously.)

A pipevine swallowtail. Thanks to Vernon Antoine Brou for the ID.

In personal holiday news, our wedding anniversary was Monday, my birthday was yesterday & Charles' is today.

Also, I'll be vending at the Art for Madisonville market an the Tchefuncte Riverfront on Water St. in Madisonville, LA on Sat., Oct. 16th from 10am to 4pm. C'mon down!

That place looks cool. I bet it turns into a big water-slide during a rainstorm! Though I'll pass on my turn.

Happy birthdays and anniversary!

Travis Erwin said...

So beautiful. What a great way to greet the weekend. Thanks for the beauty of it all :)

Larry said...

Never hear of a Pipevine Swallowtail-It must be a favorite amongst the plumbers who are butterfly enthusiasts!

debra said...

What an incredibly beautiful place, Lana. Kind of helps us keep things in perspective...
happy anniversary!

Lana Gramlich said...

G, V & Cloudia; Thanks. :)

FreakSmack; Thanks. Yes, it was really awesome!

Travis E.; I know! I was surprised to discover this was just an hour from home (roughly.)

celticmusicfan; Anytime. Thank YOU for the kind comment. :)

Larry; I'd never heard of one, either, so it was cool to learn something new!

debra; Thanks. I agree about the perspective thing...completely.

Maalie said...

Wow! That is some landslide! I trust that no car was passing at the time!
Great shot of the swallowtail too!

Rick said...

Happy Anniversary and Birthday to you guys! What would the internet be without your fine art and Charles's superb writing?

Travis Cody said...

Happy Anniversary and Double Happy Birthday!

Lana Gramlich said...

Maalie; Thanks. :) No, no car was passing. The road was moved long ago. There's no vehicular access to that section of the road anymore.

Rick; Aw shucks, hon...thanks. You're too kind. :)

Travis C.; Thank you kindly! :)

Nice angle :)
Come here in Indonesia. I can show you million bigger and higher places like that with tropical fruit trees around and tea field

Lana Gramlich said...

Amelia; I have no doubt. That's what makes Red Bluff so special--there's NOTHING like it anywhere near here. It's completely unique to the area. Not to mention the rainbow colored soils...

Paul said...

Very nice pictures, Lana. I especially like the butterfly picture.

eileeninmd said...

Looks like a beautiful place to visit. I love the butterfly shot too. Wonderful photos, Lana! Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday to you and your hubby.

Lana Gramlich said...

Paul; Thank you. I've been lucky with butterfly photos lately. Normally they just won't sit still long enough!

eileeninmd; Thanks, hon. Yes, Red Bluff was really amazing.

Aimless Writer said...

Great pics. I'll be seeing that place in real life was awe-inspiring.
Thanks!

Lana Gramlich said...

Aimless Writer; Thank YOU. Yes, it was pretty cool. More than I was expecting, certainly. I'll have to go back again sometime.

I love landscape and nature photos the best and these are terrific. I try to take shots like this all the time with my digital camera. One of these days, I'm going to get my photo blog up and running. I have hundreds of my own pics ready to be seen.

What strikes me as so interesting about these pics is that it seems you took them somewhere in Arizona or another desert landscape rather than in Morgantown, MS. But I believe ya. Hahaha. Take care.

Lana Gramlich said...

Kelly; Yes--you should get that photo blog up. I'd love to see it! Thanks for the kind comments on my shots. Red Bluff was very surreal..I was glad to have found it!

Erik Donald France said...
