Muted Colors


Let's step back into late fall for a moment.
Late fall usually gives us a palette of muted colors,but they too can be beautiful.


A small marsh area can have beauty at any time of year.


As usual,I have to zoom in on the reflections.

As I drove down the road,I found this lone horse standing quite a distance from the road.I stopped,rolled down the window and started talking to him.I was surprised when he responded by walking closer to the fence and the road.


As the sun was setting it painted the leafless trees a rich golden brown color.

I have often driven by this tree, but have never stopped to get a picture,but in the golden light of the setting sun,it suddenly became an item of beauty.


Closing thought:
The Lord has done great things for us,and we are filled with joy.
Psalm 126:3

  9. Hi, Great shots.... You and I both love reflections... AND---we also love both sunrise and sunset sun hitting the trees (since my picture this morning was from our sunrise today)...

  11. These are really nice, Ruth. I especially enjoyed the horse, of course; but the golden light on the trees was beautiful. You were definitely on the spot at the right time.
