the power of nature

I took a little hike to this place with my camera.  
The air was crisp (okay, cold) and all I could hear was the magnitude of the water.
It gave me some needed strength.  
How I love times like remind myself how we are all just droplets in this universe and to experience the force of all things good and strong and beautiful.

Delicious Autumn!
If I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

the tire swing

We woke up to a much different color this morning.
It is all white out there...we had snow overnight!
This is how it looked during the weekend.
This is/was a scene in our neighborhood.

Can you believe that I am still finding flowers in the middle of November!
So thankful.

man on dock

Here is the man that goes on many photo adventures with me.
He walks and walks and waits and waits for me to do "my thing" as he describes it!
We have a good time together on our little excursions.
Walter always finds interesting things.  
Here he is holding a walking stick he found (and left behind for the next hiker to find) and a leaf bouquet that we collected along the way.
Good times!

Came across this little lovely yesterday.  
It is strong enough not to be touched by this grey, chilly, rainy, windy October sky.
A lesson learned. 
Thank you, my friend, for sharing it with me.

Sometimes I do believe that the rain just makes the colors pop even more.

little house on the pond

This little house floats on the pond I shared with you yesterday.
I think it is so sweet.  Imagine a little family using those stairs!

My Mother

My Mother 'finally' let me take a photo of her yesterday.
I love this picture of her. She is such a beautiful woman.

Lots of people I know need light and love and prayers right now.
Let us all send out kind and gentle thoughts to those in need.

autumn skies

The skies might be grey and rainy today but we have flowers.
I heard talk yesterday of folks still picking bouquets from their gardens!
How wonderful for October 8th.

dappled gray in his full glory

dappled gray

Despite the rain, Dappled Gray (I made up that name!) was a true gentleman in every sense of the word.  
He allowed many photographs and posed for the lens in a number of locations in his field.
I want to go back and bring him some apples and carrots as a thank you gift 
for his sweet gentle kindness.
Yesterday was World Animal Day.  Every day is animal day to me.

it's s a sign of the time

There is nothing quite like that honking sound made by the Canadian geese.
I love the way you can always hear their call before you see them.
Last evening I dropped what I was doing and stood perfectly still looking overhead and awaiting their familiar V-formation.
They fly over so quickly it is often hard to capture them.  
I pointed my lens into the sky and was temporarily blinded by the bright sky!  I pressed the shutter and hoped for the best.
It is always a guess to see what happened.
This time I was rather fortunate.
