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.

Winter is coming folks!  Enjoy the last of the fall.

Grafton Notch–NOT!–09-28-2019

Sunday I decided to head to Grafton Notch in Maine.  Found a shorter trail, looked up the weather (no rain until 5pm) we are good to go!

Firs stop – a bridge!  With just enough color for it to make for a good picture.

Next stop – another bridge!  This one in Groveton!  The sky was crazy!  The light was weird, but it still made for some good photos!

Then I stopped in Stark and look, another bridge!  I find it odd that the church seemed to have horns – just saying.

And more color and one really cool flag planted in the middle of the water and a great reflection.
