Livin' the Dream (50)

Yesterday's clouds were beautiful, and the little Dream 50 looked so sexy and eager sitting in the shop I couldn't resist a ride up to Berryessa.

Heading down into Pleasants Valley-





I like shady tree tunnels....




....and old barns



Tried an HDR treatment on this shot



There's hardly any green left around the lake, but the golden hills have their own beauty





Heading back down from the dam....





....and back down PV road toward home



Almost home, and as always I'm amazed at the fun factor this little rascal provides.



-Bill

Lovely pics. Are the colors “enhanced”, or are they real?

Enhanced, at least enough to make the scenes appear as they did to my eye in person. Um, OK, maybe a bit more than that sometimes!

Bill,

Beautiful pics as always; hard to choose between the dream or the scenery.

Honda should hire you for their commercials/ads; they’d sell even more motos and probably have an uptick in vintage rides.

Keep ‘em coming...
