Fall Colors From the Past

It is officially fall and so I want to share some fall colours with you.
Where I live the colours are just beginning,so I have gone back to the archives,Jake's slides,and found some pictures to share.
I believe that whether these were taken 40 years ago or yesterday,the beauty remains the same.

Once again,I am not sure just where many of these were taken,so all we can do is enjoy the scenes.

I do believe that all of these pictures were somewhere in southern Manitoba.


I added this one because of the reflection of a fall colored tree in the water.
This is a female Wood Duck

This is perhaps somewhere near the Pembina Valley.
This valley is located west of Morden and is a popular place for a Sunday afternoon drive,especially in fall.

I am pretty sure this picture is not that old,but still from the slide era.This was taken on our yard here in Morden,which would make it close to 20 years old.


I am slowly trying to post Jake's slide pictures.
Many I have used before,but I want to try to get to the rest,so there will be more posts like this.


Thought for today:
May this fall's blessings remind you of our Father's boundless love.

Great timing with the photos! Sometimes those beautiful colors change overnight or a wild wind wastes the leaves! Thanks so much for sharing Jake's photography with us! Very special!

Shug said...

I am so thankful for that Love..
Ruth, these are absolutely beautiful. Our Falls are not quite as vibrant in color as the ones that you all have....
Would love to see those colors someday...
Hugs,
Shug

I love the brilliance of fall colours. You have nice memories in Jake's slides.

Oh, Ruth, I hope there will be LOTS more posts like this!!! The fall colors in your photos are fabulous and that last pic of the leaves is "priceless"--absolutely perfect. Maybe Fall just became my favorite season-I'm so fickle!!! Have a lovely week. Mickie :)

All of these are so beautiful. Jake took fantastic photos, back when it wasn't as easy as it is now with the digital technology. I always enjoy when you share his work with us.

Fall brings out the colors and the cameras go clicking. Few capture fall like Jake did. Thank You.

Ginny Hartzler said...

Jake was truly an artist with the camera. He saw things that others often miss, and noticed all the joyous beauty that God has given us. I especially like the duck with the great reflection, double duck!

Debbie said...

Wonderful scenes of FALL! I like the DUCK photo best!

Rick said...

Wow Ruth - these are gorgeous ! Creation's beauty never grows old. Who can replicate handiwork like this ? And all for our pleasure. Who can possibly see the transformation in autumn and deny the Creator's existence and faithfulness ?

Have a wonderful week.

Hi There, I'm back after a few weeks off from blogging. Hope you are doing okay. I have missed all of my blogging friends --but needed that break!

I did enjoy communicating with you on FB though....

Your photos are awesome. Hope we see lots of Fall colors around here soon.

Hugs,
Betsy

Such vibrant colors.....made me think of the hymn, "For the Beauty of the Earth."

MadSnapper said...

that is the great thing about digital, we can capture all the wonderful moments in life and revisit them. the red leaves and the duck are absolutely stunning

MedaM said...

These series of autumn photos is absolutely fantastic. Who can resist to lovely colors of fall. And the photo with a duck reflection is outstanding; I simply couldn't stop looking at it.

Pat said...

These are all stunning photos, Ruth, a tribute to Jake. I love the bright fall colors that you get there in Manitoba. Often we have a fall with only slightly changed colors, and then in other years the colors are brilliant....it depends on how cold it gets.

Montanagirl said...

Beautiful - and that last photo is stunning!

~Brenda said...

Just beautiful; autumn is my favorite season!

Tammy said...

Nice colors, Ruth. You are making me eager for the change.

George said...

The beauty in these pictures is truly timeless. All of these are absolutely gorgeous.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

These are beautiful, Ruth. I always marvel at the detail that comes through from Jake's old film photos that have had to be converted to digital and scanned into the computer. He really had an eye for photography.

Lisa said...

Ruth these take my breath away. I love Autumn. I think the Lord Blessed us greatly with his canvas of colors just for us at this time of year. Stunning photos. Hope you have more.

Cicero Sings said...

Beautiful fall colours and photos! Not much is changing here yet. Feels right cold out there this evening and it is clear so we just might get our first frost.

Take care and have a wonderful week.
Dianne :)
