Fall Colors With the Phone

All of the pictures today have been taken with my iPhone.

Fall has brought some colour even on my deck.
I purchased these Mums to give fall colour.I know I have shown some close-ups of these,but here is what you would see as you walk up on my deck.
Excuse the plastic bag in the lattice.It is to keep rain out of the plug-in for some lights I have around the deck.


I found this bright yellow up at the lake just west of town. The clear blue sky gives a nice background for the yellow leaves.


Same tree,different angle.The road leads to the back of the lake and is one I have driven down many times in search of photos.


If you promise not to tell anyone,I'll tell you where this is.
This is my view while driving down the street in Morden.
Yes,I was driving,but I carefully timed it so there was no on coming traffic.
You have to remember I was using my phone so I still had one hand firmly on the steering wheel.

 After that confession,let's sit down my a bonfire and relax.
I had the privilege of visiting a friend the other day who lives on a farm.Actually what happened was that another friend and I invited ourselves over for a wiener roast and visit.
We had a wonderful time.Fall is the perfect time for a cozy fire and some roasted hotdogs.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

HI Ruth great photographs from the iphone, sometimes I wonder nowadays why some people carry all the heavy equipment around when you can get these result from a phone. Love the blue sky with the yellow leaves best.

Wow---fabulous Fall photos, Ruth... Can't wait to see more colors like that here. As you know, we saw quite a bit on our trip--but even that was sporadic.

Love bonfires in the Fall. And there's nothing better over a roaring fire than a hotdog... YUM..... (WELL--maybe a 'smore would be as good!!!! ha)

Hugs,
Betsy

You can even make a fire picture look gorgeous! The yellow leaves must be at their peak, they are just gorgeous, and then backed by that sky, WOW!

What a brilliant blue sky, Ruth. Your mums are lovely. I've got a few pots around my place now also and they sure do bring a needed splash of colour. Your photos, as always, are wonderful.
