White River, N.W. Arkansas, USA.
Nikon CoolPix P90

With a heat index of 115 today, it was time to just chill at the river for a spell!!
I have found a spot where the whitetail deer cross the river, so I arrived a bit early in hopes of getting a few shots. Which I did, but found that I was not close enough for my lens. I only shot 240 images today! LOL! Oh, well thats the beauty of digital!! I will have lots of material for winter, when I will be way too couped up in the house.

    It has been hot here with violent storms in the afternoon. I like it when it rains at night, though. A wonderful picture.

  • Afternoon storms are great as long as they are not too violent! We have, had storms everyday until last week :)) The heat is here to stay a while! I sure enjoyed watching the storms build over Longs Peek when I was visiting the Rockys in June 09. It was like clock work, and we had a rain each evening :)) Thank you Lori :))xx Carolyn

    Beautiful spot Carolyn!!!…you captured it so well…tomorrow our temp is suppose to be 103 so no telling what the heat index will be…I’m ready for fall!!!……Susan

  • Thank you Susan! I did get a few pix of the deer crossing the river, but they are just not good enough to post here! Tomorrow evening I will get much closer, and just sit back (yes in the water LOL!) and wait. Had a 10 point buck to cross, and I am sure hoping he does the same tomorrow! I am ready for the fall temps, and colors for sure!! Stay cool :)) its going to be another hot one! Hugs Carolyn

    How refreshing looking! I got an e-mail today from a friend in Arkansas (Bearden) and she said it was 104 there. Even Florida isn’t that hot, but close.

  • LOL!! We are in this heat for the long run, I affraid :)) The white river is so beautiful in any season, and hoping to get a few good shots of that buck, this evening! With this heat there are only two places to be! Inside enjoying the air condition, or sitting in the middle of the river LOL!! Me thinks I would rather sit in the river, :))xx Carolyn…..Thank you, Dot

    Wow, and I thought it was hot out here in Colorado! It’s in the 90s, which is truly hot for this area, but the humidity is a dickens of a lot less, which really does matter! Well, I’m about to go to Georgia for a week and a half, so I’ll be sweatin’ it out about the same as you are, I reckon, once I get there, lol! At least you do have the river, though! Nice shot!

  • Girl, the humidity is so high its like walking on water :)) LOL!!! I think we have seen the last of the 90s for a while! Yes you will be sweating in Georgia THATS for sure!!! Let me know when you are leaving, and I’ll do a rain dance for ya :))xx haha ! hugs Carolyn

    This looks like a beautiful spot Carolyn!!! I hope you are cooling off well!! It is cold here today, funny that, being on opposite sides of the world and all!! :))) Enjoy your warmth, says the cold person!!! :)))

  • LOL!!! It is funny, huh? Too bad we do not have time warps, and we could just step over to each others side of the world for a bit of a break, and visits! haha :)) I am enjoying it as much as I can, knowing winter is but a season and 1/2 away :)) Stay warm, Vicki :)xx Carolyn
