Early Fall

It is October.Seems like we just started September and now that month is history.I must be getting old(er),because I don't recall time flying by so quickly some years back.
Oh well,be that as it may,each day is another day to look for beauty in unexpected places.


The following pictures are from about mid-Speptember,showing early signs of fall.

This picture is taken at a corner I like to go to ,while waiting for the sunset.The view is always pretty,with the rolling hills.


While I was busy getting the previous picture,a friend who I was with pointed out this cobweb in the corner of some intersecting posts. The setting sun behind it turned it into a piece of artwork.

 It was the time of full moon,so a few moon shots were in order,even before it was dark outside.


I liked the look of the curved swaths of grain and the gentle moon in the sky.


At the place where the first two pictures were taken,stands a flag pole,proudly flying our Canadian Maple Leaf.Oh Canada,we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada,we stand on guard for thee.

  2. September zoomed by just as quickly down here for me as it did for you. But we both know we aren't getting old(er)! I really like your photo of the cobweb in the sun. Your flag picture is good as well.

  4. Ruth, wonderful images! Fall was always my favourite season while growing up in Manitoba. As I get old(er) I think I like Spring best!

  5. Wonderful photos Ruth!

    I have two favorites: the first one and the one with the moon over the fields. Just beautiful!

    Thank you for capturing and sharing all of the beauty that surrounds you up there.

  7. The last picture of the moon, over the golden field, is my favorite. It is so beautiful!!! And if I squint really hard, maybe way in the distance I can see the Little House On the Prairie...

  13. Our spring came early and although it should still be spring it is already dry and we had smoke from a nearby grass fire. Your autumn looks lovely. I feel like the whole year has gone in the blink of an eye.
    Yes, Canada is beautiful and I hope ad pray it always stays free.

  14. Love that spiderweb shot! Time does indeed fly by faster as you get older. When we were young it seemed to drag along. Right now we are speeding into winter. We're getting snow and frost regularly although so far it's been melting. The thermometer is dropping down more and more, and I think it won't be long until the snow is here to stay.

  15. Hi Ruth, What a nice post. I was going to say the moon over the wheat fields was my favorite, but they are all so good it is hard to pick one. The spider web turned out great! John

  18. Pretty, pretty and MORE pretty!!! That Canadian sky against the rich blue is stunning...and the Autumn Colors...outstanding. The web with the sunlight as a backdrop, tho, stole the show in my opinion.

  19. Canadian pride .. so evident here. You had me standing up for our anthem in the end. ;)

    Gorgeous pics as always, Ruth. And I love how you've done your header.

  20. The maple leaf is my favorite. I even ordered one dipped in gold for a Christmas tree ornament. Time is flying by much too quickly.

  22. Beautiful shots- and I love your header. I'm thinking of taking mine completely off- it's either too tall of something is wrong with every one I make! :)
