Thanks for all your great Hoosier Pic submissions! Keep ’em coming because we feature at least one photo every day on-air and online!
Today at 6, Chief Meteorologist Chris Wright will share Rachel White’s “Family of Leaves” with our viewers. I love the creativity it took to create this great pic…especially the “dot” on the i! I may have to “borrow” this idea next fall when I’m looking for fun photo ideas myself!
Today at noon I featured Carolyn Baldwin’s squirrel preparing for a long, cold winter, perhaps. It’s definitely that time of year! Carolyn says she spotted this critter off Kentucky and Lynhurst in Indy.
Yesterday at 6, Chris showed this little critter playing peek-a-boo in a tree. Thanks to Angie Hardin for posting this pic on our facebook page! She says the little guy was gathering food for the winter when she spotted him and snapped this pic!
Wednesday’s 11 pm Hoosier Pic was this stunning sky photo from Yorktown, Indiana. Carissa Adelsperger shared this pic with us on our facebook page and probably got a few “likes” along the way!
And how ’bout this pic that really takes you to another place? Kelly Mote posted this “Tunnel of Trees” from an old country road in Hancock County. We like this view best, but she also shared the view looking back the other way on our facebook page. This was the pic Chris Wright featured Wednesday at 6pm.
Tuesday at 6, Chris shared this pic of a red tailed hawk taken by Brandie Metcalf. She says the bird came to visit the Marian University campus just in time for her to snap a pic.
And while *most* of our Hoosier Pic features are scenic, Michael Dunbar’s Hoosier Pic I shared with our viewers Tuesday at noon tells a different story. Remember Monday’s severe weather? When the storms moved over West Lafayette, they dropped a lot of rain along the way. Michael says this was the view out his window of what normally is a playing field. So much rain fell in the storms that it looked more like a retention pond!
We didn’t choose any Hoosier Pics Monday evening (for obvious reasons because of the severe storms rolling through)…instead we were appreciative of the storm pics you shared with us for our regular news and weather coverage! Before the severe weather, James Worman snapped a shot on Indy’s Westside of our morning storms which I featured Monday at noon as as our Hoosier Pic on-air.
Sunday’s 6pm Hoosier Pic is the envy of all leaf peepers! Tom McCullough of Indianapolis shot this pic down in Brown County which he called “The Best Driveway in Brown County.” Yes, Tom…you made us all very jealous! Thanks for sharing and we love your pic! I tweeted it to @ILuvBrownCounty as well…and they shared it with their followers on twitter. What a great season fall is!
So there you have it! A week’s worth of Hoosier Pic selections. To see a larger image, just click on the pic! And hopefully you’ve been inspired to share your pic (or pics) with us too!
