Photohunt: Curvy

I took the photograph below, last fall, of a curvy path. The leaves aren't that far along yet this year, but in a few more weeks we'll start to get our bright autumn colors.
Since the photograph only shows one curve in the path, I took a picture of a section of my trail and bike route map. The green lines indicate the paths which are part of my city's greenway system which includes parks and strips of land through woods, along creeks, rivers, and lakes. As you can see the paths are quite curvy. The path which I photographed above is the curve on the left end of the lake in the center of the map. I took the photograph as I walked from the lower part climbing up and round. To find other photo hunters or to learn how to join the hunt, please go to the links below. The official hunt day is Saturday but I am, as usual, early.

Happy weekend!

Oh, a gorgeous shot of a curvy path, indeed. I so miss real fall! The leaves don't turn colors here in the sunny purgatory of Los Angeles. Oh for the midwestern autumns of my youth...

Sabine said...

What a splendid autumn view! I'm missing autumn too, A LOT! Here, it's practically either summer or "winter" (which is almost summer only cooler) and there are hardly any trees at all. :(

That walk reminds me of a walk I used to take over Lucerne, Switzerland!

I would love to bike there. It's murder here with the mountains and all. Your paths remind me of Washington DC when I biked with my son.

Goofy Girl said...

I love the curved road! Very pretty shot :)

Have a nice weekend.

eastcoastlife said...

The path seems endless. What a nice walk that is, seeing the lake, woods and creek. We don't have such beautiful walks to take in tiny Singapore.

GHD said...

This picture makes me want to run outside and do more exploring. I love it!

Heather said...

Absolutely perfect. What a beautiful view.

Great idea for the theme!

Dragonheart said...

Beautiful fall photo! :) Lovely curly path - I want to follow it and find out where it goes!

I love your picture! Curvy paths, whether man made or natural, add to the drama of a place, don't you think?

Yen said...

Thanks for visiting with me and my photo hunt...I appreciated your comment!!!

hana said...

great shot and wonderful find for todays theme!

Chris said...

Those colours are gorgeous (leaves, sky, grass), Carver, so vibrant. And a lovely curvy path. For some reason I dislike straight paths, although I can see that it would be impractical to have some pavements (or sidewalks) curvy!

Bengbeng said...

beautiful view..i wish i have experienced autumn b4. yr pic gives me an idea though :)

A. said...

Beautiful, beautiful colours, a lovely shot of the curvy path.

Mark said...

Hi Carver,
I love this time of year , simply for the colours, nearly as good as Spring, but I like that for the reason that we are coming out of Winter.

Cheers Mark

TopVeg said...

How lovely to have so many trails with interesting creeks and lakes. Lovely photo of the curvy track. Best wishes

Melli said...

I used to live in a place that had wonderful walking/bike paths like that! It was fabulous! And I weighed less!!! That is really a beautiful shot - the leaves are gorgeous!

LoveMyStarr said...

What a beautiful place to take a walk. Our city has a greenway, too. But, it's not quite as long as that one.

Secret Agent Mama said...

I absolutely love curvy roads like that one!!

Ladynred said...

I love the fall color. Great entry on the curvy. I actually got an idea from you, hehehe was here earlier looking!

Katney said...

Very nice. I hope to be hiking a very curvy path after breakfast. Flall colors should be out there.

Barbara H. @ Stray Thoughts said...

Love the curvy path -- makes you wonder what's just around the bend.

Gattina said...

Very nice curves !

Shelby said...

really beautiful shot :)

PowersTwinB said...

Oh that path is just awesome!! I am waiting for my trees to begin their coloring...but its 83 degrees here in Michigan, so until we have that first cold snap, there will be no colors! lol..thanks for visiting my hunt today

YTSL said...

What a beautiful photo! Thanks for sharing! :)

Smalltown RN said...

The leaves are turning and are brilliant colours I just love the fall and all it's colours.....

Love Bears All Things said...

Oh, I'd love to come walk that trail and see those beautiful fall colors.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Hard to beat the fall colors. And curvy, too.

Cheers.

Elizabeth said...

Beautiful! I wish we had some of those fall colors here. IN OK it changes from green to yellow to gone in about 48 hours.

Shabem said...

Love the path beautifully captured!

Simple Journeys said...

Curvy and oh, so beautiful! I would love to wander down that path! Thanks for visiting my site. :)

I love your first picture. The moment I look at it, it reminds me of the book "A Bend In The Road" by Nicholas Sparks (= Lovely (= Thanks for sharing and may you have a great weekend (= Have fun (=

Flo said...

Wow, that is a really curvy road. I love the picture, it really captures the road.

just blog hopping...

Siani said...

I love the curvy path shot - such amazing autumn colours. Have a great weekend!

alisonwonderland said...

nice pick for this week's theme! i love this time of year with all the colors. i just wish it'd last longer ...

happy photo hunting!

raymond pert said...

I enjoy how the curve peaks with the blazing tree at the top. The way it peaks in the upper part of your photograph makes it a very smart composition.

Janet said...

what a gorgeous bike path!!!

yenjai.net said...

A real scenic view. Thanks

satkuru said...

That's a great shot of the curve in the road. Thanks for sharing!

tiny london said...

I love the curvy path and the beautiful leaves. When asked what my favourite season is, I always reply: "the changing of the seasons". That way all the seasons can be my favourite. :)

Carver said...

Thanks so much to everyone for visiting. I appreciate your comments.

Kelly @ Kel's Space said...

Beautiful photos, thank you so much for stopping by my blog and commenting on my photo - I love your more organic take on it.

AscenderRisesAbove said...

what an amazing brilliant looking tree; fall is always my favorite for the turning trees - though we dont get much of it here in my little corner of the world

Hin Man said...

Apology on the late reply, a very lovely shot with great color and curvy path.
