Fall Colors

Wow!  guess I needed a little break.  I haven’t blogged in a few weeks and I haven’t really taken many pics lately either, which is quite odd for me.  Usually I take pics every day of something or other, even if it’s only of a cloudy sky.  I have taken a few in the last couple days, and I’ll put those up now.  I wanted to get a few on my way home from work this morning, but it was raining.  I’m hoping to get out and get some pics this Friday after work and also this weekend, now that the fall colors are just about peaked in my area.

I shot this on my way to town on Sunday

The road past my house, facing north.

Tuesday Morning

I shot these pics on my way home from work this morning.  When I left the building, there was pretty heavy cloud cover, but it started breaking up a bit as I drove.  It ended up being a beautiful, warm, cloudless day.  I would have preferred a few clouds to add a little interest to the sky, but I guess with winter approaching, we’ll have plenty of cloudy days coming up.

The colors have been changing for over a week now.

And last but not least, the setting moon.

Friday’s Sky

Today was gray and rainy all day, but yesterday the skies were beautiful all day.  I shot the first few pics about an hour or so before sunset.  The others, of course, were taken at sunset.

Grasshopper

Yesterday, I found a grasshopper sunning himself, and he sat and allowed me to get pics of him from all angles, which surprised me, because I got very close to get these pics.

Unknown Road

UNKNOWN ROAD

I walk along the

Dusty, gravel road

With my dog leading the way.

He doesn’t know where

He is going, but he’s

Anxious to get there

Just the same.

We turn off onto

An unknown road

Not knowing where

It will lead,

So I just keep walking,

And eventually

I’ll find out.

All is calm, silent,

Not even a breeze

Stirs the air.

The only sounds I hear

Are the birds singing,

Calling to one another

From among the trees.

As I walk along

Through the sunlight

And shadows,

I feel I’m

In another world;

One so far removed

From my usual, hectic pace.

The farther I walk,

The more I wish

I would never have to

Turn around and go back

To that way of life,

And just to spend my days

Walking down unknown roads,

If only to see where they lead.

Evening Walk, Sept.5

It was a beautiful evening for a walk today.  The temperature was in the 60’s and it was very still and calm.  All I could hear was the crickets.  And, of course, the occassional car passing me by.  There was also an awesome mackerel sky, which I got quite a few pictures of.

Evening Walk, Sept. 3

I took shots of the sky tonight in all 4 directions while I was on my walk.  There’s nothing I love more than watching the sky and seeing the interesting cloud formations.  Much as I like a bright sunny blue sky, I find a cloudy sky much more fascinating.

South

West

And of course, the pretty white barn down the road.
