Sunday was a dreary day but I grabbed the camera and headed to Sperryville where Cooter, from the TV series, Dukes of Hazard, was having a grand opening of his DOH museum and clothing store. I know nothing about the program except that it's a firm American favorite, and I was hoping that some of the cast might be attending.
A famous clip from the show is here, for those of you that don't know him. He throws the first punch.
Despite the miserable weather there was live music playing out the back with a BBQ and an ice cream van providing refreshments. I didn't stop though. Leaving the fans to continue enjoying their afternoon I drove down back roads towards home.
Later in the afternoon I walked over to one of the Tulip Trees we have on the hill. These blooms don't last for long and with the many storms we've been
having lately, there was no time like the present to enjoy them. Last year I missed their flowering season completely, I had amazingly failed to notice these beautiful blooms, so today I was going to capture them. I'm glad I did, the ground was already littered with thousands of brown petals but there were still a few lemon and orange flowers gleaming amongst the leaves. I used my camera and macro lens on my iPhone.
