More This and that from the Woods...

Before full blown autumn took place in the U.P.
I had taken some photos
that I haven't posted yet.

Before we get snow (which by the way, by the time this posts, I am sure we will get!)
I wanted to show you them today.

This was early morning on our Lake Michigamme
which my living room and dining room

This is the seeding flowers
of invasive
Japense knotweed:

Some morning dew drops:

Unknown berries (which I am sure are inedible!):

A traincar on an abandoned train track this autumn:

Tree mushrooms. These remind me of hanging bells!:

Waves splashing over Lake Superior beach rocks:

Driving straight into autumn:

Stay tuned,
I  have more to come!


Brian Miller said...

love the old train car...something about rust...also the tree mushrooms as they are at an intersting angle...

Cathy Clementz said...

Very wonderful shots!! I especially liked the traincars and the very last one.

Wanda..... said...

The 'Driving Staight into Autumn' photo was perfect with the gravel road that appears to go deeper and deeper into Autumn!
I'm surprised to see railway cars abandoned there in the countryside, seems unsafe...wondering why they weren't salvaged or moved.

Eva Gallant said...

I have 3 favorites in this batch; the first one, the last one and the one with the berries! All amazing!

Blissed-Out Grandma said...

What a beautiful collection! The sunrise and fall color pix are stunning, and I especially love the abandoned train car.

L. D. Burgus said...

The sky is so marvelous. I don't think I have see so many diverse colors at one time. Your fall scenes are wonderful.

Linda Reeder said...

From beginning to end, and especially the beginning and the end, totally glorious!

Pat Tillett said...

Those are all so beautiful Joan!
The last one of course, fills me with wonder...

Your Autumn colors have been wonderful, Joan. I love the last one the best--but that first one is marvelous also....

Joan, I've really been enjoying your autumn photos - just breathtaking!!

Gaston Studio said...

The pink leaves and red berries is just awesome Joan and... the berries do look edible but not sure I' want to be the first to try them.

Lily Riani said...

I absolutely love the photo of the abandoned train. There is something so soulful about it.
