4 images in notes above!! :)

Today was Steve's Sunday Brunch Ride, and we rode our bikes from our home around a beautiful valley nearby, and stopped at the lovely Touvelle Park on the Rogue River. After eating lunch, I wandered around taking pictures and was very surprised when I found a PLUM TREE growing next to the bank! AMAZING! (Thanks to Leapfrog Art for helping to point me in the right direction on identifying the species, I found a page about these plums here: Stringer's Orchard: Pacific Plum)

Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)was a Greek philosopher and polymath, a student of Plato and teacher of Alexander the Great. His writings cover many subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology. Together with Plato and Socrates (Plato's teacher), Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures in Western philosophy. Aristotle's writings were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality, aesthetics, logic, science, politics, and metaphysics. Wikipedia: Aristotle

With your usual talent you managed to capture very natural colors. I really like the composition and the contrast between the red plums and green background.
And what about the other great macro! Congratulations for a fantastic job!

I love the quote - it really is true, I think - and it goes well with this beautiful picture of the plums! I'm glad you had a fine tour on the Sunday Brunch ride and that you had a chance to take pictures too. This was certainly a nice find.
