For one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence, look up at the sky and contemplate how amazing life is.
Lovely photos Valerie, those blue skies are a treat.
Nice set of photos, Valerie. Love the fall colors blue skies.
There's something magical about the early morning sun painting light on the autumn trees..... We've got rain at the moment, but it's warm out for November. Yesterday we had thunder storms--NOT that I'm complaining. We'll be arse deep in snow soon enough. LOL Lovely photos--I hope that means you're enjoying the day for all it's worth.
take the light where you can get it...smiles....love the soft light of morning...
Grab the sun's warmth whenever and wherever we can! If it's a sunny morning, I open my patio curtains wide to let the warmth in. If it overcast and dismal like this morning, they stay closed. Nice pics
Gorgeous photographs, Valerie!LOVE the ones you captured of bird sitting in the tree! The contrast in color between the leaves and the blue sky are breathtaking.We've had very little color change in the leaves here, so it's wonderful to see it through your photographs.We had a few days last week that were so warm, you have thought it was Spring. Although this week we're getting a cold snap.Have a lovely Sunday, dear lady!X
Ron, I was lucky getting the bird pictures... he was so far away I had to do full zoom and hope for the best. I believe we're in for a snowy session next week... Brrrr!
Yes, this is autumn's swan song isn't it - everything looks so beautiful and then it all goes to sleep for a while!
Great job on the pictures again. I have had the full zoom to get a bird in a picture too.
It's important to note the little things that lighten the heart before the snows of winter arrive. Wonderful post!
All of our fall color is gone and it is rather bleak right now....winter on its way. The birds are coming to the feeder...I have seen cardinals and woodpeckers.
Just stopped by via Brian and had to comment. Love the bird photos, they are stunning.
Hi Herman, Loved your poetic response. Thank you.Brian, that's my favourite time of day.Mel, the road gritters are on their way round as I type, which means icy roads... not good but not bad considering what some folk have to put up with.
Jenny, you are right, everything does look beautiful.Dan, thank goodness for zoom lens, eh?
Hello Tabor, nice to meet you. Thank you for popping over to my blog. I will return the compliment pretty soon.
Hi BC. You are lucky to see cardinals. Their colour must brighten up a drab day.
Your photos are lovely!
