ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " V "



We are almost to the end of the alphabet.     Its hard to believe.
Today's letter is " V ".
My first picture is of the VERDANT forest and VINES
of Auburn, California.
The weather was wonderful,
practically on the VERGE of being Summer.
Sunday we had a family barbeque along the river.
The following pictures will show what VARIOUS members
of our family do to VANQUISH the cares of the week.



Photography makes Some of us feel like we are on a VACATION.

 


VISUALIZING our worries VANISHING in the VOLUMES
of snow melt water is truly theraputic.



Dreaming and VIEWING the future in our thoughts can
actually give us the VIM and VIGOR to make them happen.
Enlarge each photo to see all the detail.
Please VISIT the ABC Wednesday link on my sidebar to
VIEW the VARIOUS posts.
I'm sure there will be a VAST VARIETY of submissions for the letter "V".

Beautiful set of images and nice choice of words.

Vim and vigor...

Heard that one before.

I would be hard-pressed to come up with many "V" words. voluptuous, varmint, victor...things like that is about it for me.

Enjoyed your pictures.

What a nice collection of V's - not a vicious one amongst them. Nice family pictures and even better enlarged.

what a nice spot to have a picnic. I'm planning to take my grandson to the park on Sunday, and have a picnic by the stream.

Gattina said...

It looks very refreshing !

Very peaceful, beautiful captures of a relaxing riverside. Nothing beats sitting on a rock in a middle of the river on a sunny day.

Kansas Bob said...

Love the serenity in these photos.

Paula Scott said...

A bit of shangrila, it seems! That little bridge is perfect! I'd like to visit there too.

Ann said...

Take me to the creek, where the water rushes and I see the fish.

I love that.

I enlarged every photo and am impressed with the energy of that little stream. Am also impressed with the lens of the camera held by one photogapher!

I always love your ABC entries, such rich content of every letter. Nice family get together.

Sorry for my late visit but thanks for visiting me earlier.

Knowing the snow is melting is probably also therapeutic Sue? Nice photos - Dave
