Some Peaceful Fall Photos

If you read my other blog you will remember my admission that taking a hunded or so photos on a day will leave me with a few that are nice and acceptable for posting and not closeups of frosting smears!  And thus you can see some of the beauty I was able to capture on this recent fall paddle along the river and into the small bay.  Apologies, but I reduce the pixel size so that my blogger allotment does not get too full too fast...the photos are nicer full pixel.







Alas, the leaves are now all on the ground making earth food for next year.  This morning my yard looked as though someone has sprinkled sugar over every leaf edge and every remaining flower petal.

You got some nice shots while it lasted, which is all one can ask of autumn. (I like the bird!)

Lovely photos. I'm a huge fan of blue herons and your shot captures their majestic beauty. Well done. :)

Fall is a great season for photos. It's something about the lighting and colors and that nostalgic mood. Water looks cold! :^)

Hilary said...

Very pretty, Tabor.. the season in all its beauty.

Peruby said...

Drat Google and their limited space! The pictures are truly magnificent.

Dave King said...

Fantastic - would I be spoiling it, though, if I said the second one reminded me of a slice of cheesecake?
(Sorry, but it did!)

I don't understand all thus pixel business so I guess I better not buy a new camera until I do. Your pictures are fantastic. I do understand that.

Tabor said...

Thanks to all for the compliments...us amateur photographers live for that. Dave...cheesecake? When was the last time you had a descent meal? Granny I left a very short note about a somewhat complicated subject on your blog.

Beautiful pictures... I MISS Fall already... Seemed like it passed by SO FAST this year... Love the reflections in those pictures, especially the first one.
Hugs,
Betsy

Gorgeous color!! I miss that in the South.

Pauline said...

Such lovely colors. The autumn season offers one of my favorite palettes.

Dave King said...

You and me both: I had to read your comment twice before i spotted it! Actually, I love it: it suggests all sorts of openings - and leads nicely into part of my post for today! (You can't have a descent meal without a nice bottle of plonk, now can you?)

One Woman's Journey said...

Beautiful - my yard is similar to yours :)

Angie said...

Gorgeous photos, Tabor!! I loved reading the 'ghostly' post on your other blog. :) I have an avid fascination with ghostly things. :)

Kat said...
