We took our last ride (before storing our pontoon away for the winter) on our lake on Friday night, and it couldn' t have been a more perfect evening out on the lake.
There was barely any wind and the sun was setting and lighting up the shoreline of autumn colors like fire!
Here is a shot of the far shore as we headed out on the lake in our pontoon:
But, in the setting sun, the reds and oranges become brilliant, like they are on fire!:
I didn't want the evening ride to end:
But the sun was setting rapidly, making shadows..telling us this Heaven had to go to sleep for the night:
I have been going out into the woods and trying to capture autumn pictures before all the leaves fall off.
Here, it can happen very quickly.
Some falls, the leaves are glorious for about a month.
Some autumns, we get wind and rain after a week or two of color and it blows them all off, quickly.
Not being a gambler, I am outside now everyday trying to capture colored leaves before Mother Nature asserts herself and brings on bare limbs and cold winds.
Wish me luck with the race.
I only want two more weeks...
just two more weeks.....
