Before I head out to do Thanksgiving Dinner Grocery Shopping, I wanted to share a few #Fall2016 photos. Since the devastating results of the election, I’ve pulled out my camera only once or twice, and because of that, I’ve not really captured the beauty of fall.
I did snap a few though. Two with the camera. Two with the cell phone.
Can you tell which image came from which camera?
Thank you for being here. Your solidarity in devastation, your words of wisdom, and your hopeful spirits have been soothing to me.
The contentment that comes with this post is two fold:
remembering the bike trip through the Smoky Mountains 2 years ago that allowed me to spend two days with nature and my camera (even if the trip did result in the bike wreck)
knowing that soon, in 12 days, I’ll be spending a lot more time shooting! And with visiting all of you!
Happy Fall, Ya’ll!!
As I sat on the front porch making campaign calls, I couldn’t help but feel that I was halfway between the seasons of summer and fall.
Meanwhile, I’m definitely at the height of campaign season! 51 Days!
Looking forward to visiting your blogs today 🙂
The campaign trail is going to challenge me to find time with my camera. Thankfully, I always have it with me.
A few weeks back, some dear friends and I gathered along the river for a weekend of Gifts. The cabin we rented was situated beside the New River, and was surrounded by trees. The Japanese Maples were vibrant with color, and the two growing next to each other just outside the cabin door captured in nature the colors of Virginia Tech.
I could not stop taking pictures of the beautiful contrast between the two colors.
People have questioned the Hokie colors, wondering why a school would choose orange and maroon.
Fans of Virginia Tech respond by saying “If God wasn’t a Hokie then why do the leaves turn orange and maroon in the fall”?
Yep … just taking out the trash
Can you see the reflection of the tree in the remains of the puddle?
Now if only Liana would write some lovely words to go along with these images … or Joe to find a song
Requesting positive thoughts for good weather, beautiful views, safe rides, and fun times with friends! I’ll glady return the favor!!
Great Smoky Mountains, here I come!!
As I head off to Charlottesville for a Saturday meeting, I’ll hope that you all are outside somewhere, enjoying the beauty of early fall.
I have loved seeing this begonia continue to bloom well into fall … bright colors that surely fit into the oranges, reds and yellows of the changing leaves.
The blue, while not a fall color, is a lovely contrast against the brown leaves.
The afternoon sun brightens the yellow leaves that have fallen into the juniper.
