More Fall Scenes of 2009

Days are slipping by on me and my posting is not as regular as it should be.
Once again,I take you back to another year.
All the pictures on today's post were taken in 2009.
A few Oak leaves,backlit by the sun,make a good picture.

These wild grapes are quite sour,so we took only pictures and left them for the birds to enjoy.

This is one of my attempts at creativity.
Just one lone head of grass.

The next two pictures were taken at one of our favorite parks in Winnipeg,St.Vital.
I just liked the evergreen boughs against that clear blue sky.



Thought for today:
Time is a very precious gift of God;
so precious that it is only given to us moment by moment.

Lovely shots! I'm quite fond of the single stalk of grass type shots. It seems everything looks good against a deep blue sky!

Diane said...

Beautiful shots, Ruth. Any one of them is worthy of being blown up and framed. Love the quote, too. Diane

Karin said...

I LOVE the one stem of grass! It is beautiful, and quite artistic! I took a very similar picture of oak leaves last year that I will be posting again, you won't believe how much it looks like yours!! Everything here is beautiful Isn't fall a fun time to blog?

I really enjoyed these! Makes me consider going through the older albums on my portable hard drive and re-posting some shots from last fall while I wait for new fall color here. Our trees are just beginning to change here in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains.

I can't pick out a favorite -- all of these are absolutely beautiful. I do like those oak leaves a lot, however.

Lisa said...

How very very beautiful. Love the leaves.

Don't feel guilty, there is no should about how often or not we post. Whenever you do, we always enjoy it. The first shot of oak leaves is just a dream and your creativity effort is a delight. Just keep enjoying life, it is so good knowing you are around.

The changing of the colors are beginning here.... so excited for them to be out and then to get out and capture them. Love that wheat like grass. Something about that speaks to me...

LV said...

What lovely nature sights. You did a remarkable job on capturing the real beauty of this area. Ruth, you can be assured I do enjoy each day to the fullest. Life is much too short not to. Thanks for your nice comment.

Becky said...

Love each and every one Ruth.
Yes, fall is sneaking up on us, and I too am not keeping up on my writing. I somehow have more blog time in the winter.

My heart melted with that quote - and it brought to mind the lyrics of a song:
"Moment by moment, I am kept in his love"

I like how your photos are small captures - coinciding with small moments -

I think you made God smile today! I know I did!

Ruth said...

I love your fall pictures, especially the grapes. I picked some one year and made the yummiest wild grape jelly.

All lovely shots, Ruth. The single stalk of grass is quite striking as its curve stands out against the clear blue sky.
