4 Corners Sunset, 10-29-08

This was the sunset from last night.  I walked out on the road in front of our house and took shots in all 4 directions.

Autumn Frost

What a wonderful way to start the day. This is the beautiful, peaceful scene I enjoyed before sunrise yesterday morning. So beautiful, in fact, that I drank my coffee out on the front step, just to take it all in. I knew in my heart that if I didn’t, I would regret it the rest of the day. It was so wonderfully calm and still that I could hear the leaves falling down through the branches and hitting the ground. I could also hear crows in the distance and other little songbirds awakening and greeting the new day. The only thing missing was the chickadees. I love hearing their song more than any other, but apparently they are not early risers. I’m so glad I took the time to step outside to appreciate the quiet, simple, yet amazing beauty of this frosty autumn morning.

Autumn’s Beauty

The color here is past it’s peak now and the leaves are about 60-70% down.   I never got out for fall pics this year, so here’s a few from last year.

Armstrong Creek Bison Company


I took a ride to the store in Armstrong Creek a few days ago and on my way home I decided to take a different side road just to see if I could find anything interesting to take pictures of, and what I found was this bison skull at the Armstrong Creek Bison Company.  I thought the skull looked pretty cool on the stump with the fall colors in the background.

October Road

A warm autumn breeze

stirs,

encouraging

the brightly colored leaves

to release their

tenuous grasp

and drift silently

to the ground.

Lake Oneonta

I got these shots on my way home from work Friday morning.  It was very calm and overcast and when I drove by this lake, I couldn’t resist stopping for a few shots.

Piers Gorge

I haven’t had much opportunity to get out and take pictures this fall, also we’ve had quite a few gray, dreary days lately, so I really have no current pictures to share, even though the colors are peaked here right now.  What I have decided to do is share pics that I had taken the last two years instead.  The first pics I’d like to post were all taken at Piers Gorge in Norway, MI.

4 Seasons, Shorty Shack

This is a little shack that sits just at the edge of the woods south of Armstrong Creek, WI.  I don’t know the history of it other than a man nicknamed “Shorty” lived there many years ago.  This shack is very small, about 12 feet wide and only about 8 feet deep, yet it’s charm is endless.  If I ever manage to get any history on this little piece of the past, I’ll be sure to post it.
