Autumn This and That....
Today, I decided to gather some various pictures I have taken as the autumn has progresed across the U.P. of Michigan.
These were taken over the last month as the leaves began to change in our area.
There is a pond we drive by almost every day. I was waiting for the leaves to change so I could grab a photo of this pond. A few days ago, the air was colder than the water, which remained warm, and it sent up this delightful mist in the early morning. I was lucky enough to catch it that day on camera:
This was taken about a month ago when just a few of the leaves were starting to change in our area. I loved this overlook, and noticed just one branch in color:
When traveling in the woods, some trees had barely any color, and some trees had full branches of lovely yellows, oranges and reds:
Time progressed over the last few weeks, and over time, we got in high autumn colors, in all its glory!:
We went to look for moose along this railroad track and found several footprints, but did not see the moose. A wasp did find my hand and I got stung pretty badly.
But look at the colors starting to show in the area:
And within two weeks,
Here is another one of that misty pond again!:
And the color EXPLODED on our lake!:
A clear day with NO wind and all that color waiting to be reflected on the water!
It was a photographer's dream!:
I will be sharing some more autumn pictures soon, but I just HAD to show you these now.
Because, we got SNOW all three of the last three days.
We are supposed to be back up in the 50's by Sunday, but just in case we stay white here with snow, I wanted you to see our autumn now.
I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
