Walking in Prattville

This past Sunday a friend and I attended the Scott Kelby Photo Walk in Prattville, Alabama. I’d like to thank our gracious host Sue Sizemore and those who we met from the Capital City Camera Club located in Montgomery, Alabama.  It was a perfect day for being outdoors.

As I mentioned last week Prattville is a small historic town located just north of Montgomery. Founded in 1839 by Daniel Pratt, he manufactured cotton gins. Although much of the facilities have been relocated overseas, Continental Eagle is still one of the world largest gin manufacturing companies today.

The following are a few of the images that I took on Sunday.

    1. Thank you Sue! I had a wonderful time walking with you guys. I hate that I going to be out of town we you all visit Tannehill. However, maybe we will run in to each another time.

  3. Excellent images Phillip. There wasn’t a photo walk near me this year so I wasn’t able to participate. This is part of the country that I have spent very little time in. Thanks for showing the beauty of the area.

    1. Thank you for the wonderful complement Len. I hope that I able to show the beauty of the South. That is one thing that is great about the internet. We can sit down and travel around the world before supper, on any given night.

    1. Well thank you Rich for the kind words. However, I’ve seen some of your pictures and you have a great eye yourself! It was great to meet you all and I hope to join up with you again.

    1. Thank you Kris. I almost missed this shot. Most of the sun was being blocked from that area. Then I spotted this group of plants in the picture.

    1. Thank you Danielle. I’m glad that you specified which spillway picture that you liked. Several have mentioned liking the spillway and I’m thinking which one? I haven’t decided which one of the two that I like the best.

  5. Some cracking shots here Phillip. That first spillway one especially. Photo walks sound like a lot of fun.
