10-04-19–FALL CHALLENGE~

Hey, guess what – it’s Fall! 

That’s right, winter is coming……

Don’t shoot the messenger.  My friend, Shell and I have these bi-monthly challenges going and of course, I hit up fall for this one.  It is October! 

We are allowed 5 photos (I do have honorable mentions this time around)

I was coming back from Maine, when I decided to go off the GPS path – and I spotted his in the water.  It’s a mini rock island, with a flag and a brilliant tree.  Took me a few shots to get the reflection “just” right.

I drove through Groveton my way to the hike that didn’t happen – and this is a bridge one of my former pts has often said “I’m going to go live under my bridge”.  I did show her this picture and she agreed that it captured the bridge in its full glory of fall.

I did a turn around when I saw this old barn and this wonderfully full color tree growing in front of it.

I saw THREE bridges on my hike that never happened – this was the 1st.  Nothing spectacular, a one lane covered bridge.  It was the clear water under it that I wanted to capture.  After popping on my boots, slogging through wet underbrush – I snagged a few red and orange leaves on the shore and some clouds doing a build up to the rain that would eventually wash out my hike.

The last on my list is from my walk at The Dells – every time I go there I get a few great snaps. 

The sun was coming down, the leaves at the Dells are more yellow than bright red and orange.  I thought this captured the spirit of the Dells.

Honorable mentions are below.

Sun Set–Rocky Beaches

I say this ALL the time.  I love to chase the light.  I love the sun.  I love sunsets and sun rises.  I was having trouble catching a great sunset on the Island.  They are fleeting and I couldn’t find “the place”.  Then one of the CNA’s at the nursing home told me about the beach. 

Paydirt.

So off I went, found the beach but the sun wasn’t right yet.  I headed up around the other end of the Island and found a place that the sky was just starting to color.

I took off and headed back to the beach and now the light was better.  I walked around, met a great dog who thought I was the devil.  *L*

I sat on the rocks and waited.  I am totally in love with my new lens.  It reacts quick, seems easier to use.  Also – no swapping lenses!

The sun set slowly that night, so I had all the time in the world to roam around the rocky beach and snap a picture here and a picture there.  Some time to think.  Reflect.  Contemplate.

I got back in the car before it got to dark and headed back to the dock I’d taken a few pictures at before and snapped a few more.
