The Winning Post...

...at Santa Anita Park, Arcadia, California.


See it?  On the other side of the race track
in black and white.
What makes this scene for me is that mountain range.


Here is a better shot of Mount Wilson with Mr LOL too.  
No mountains in Coventry, England.  Something I really do miss seeing.

It was a treat to visit Santa Anita Park (not far from Pasadena).
There was no racing, no public.  (Next racing - 27th September 2013.)
It felt like we had the place to ourselves.

Participating in Skywatch Friday and Ein Stück Himmel.

Have a good weekend everyone!
Will show a few more holiday pics next week then back to the Coventry scene.

I do have to admit, Pasadena is a pretty nice place. Those mountains in the background are special.

Those mountains (and palms) make it for me too! Mr. LOL looks like he's enjoying the beautiful morning:) We need to drive a little ways to see mountains here as well. Hope both of you are settling back nicely.

Very cool! It's fun to see the track, even if there aren't any horses running. Nice shots! :^)

Ahhh beautiful! Mountains are always lovely to have around for a special kind of ambiance, aren't they? We certainly don't have any here on our flat plains, but Colorado isn't too far away for a visit someday soon. :-)
