One Last Look At Fall 2020

Hey, a friend and I are going for a fall drive, jump in and come with us.

Yes, my "virtual" car has room for all of you at once.

Ok, everyone settled in? Let's head out north of Morden. I make no promises to stay on main roads, cause often it is the road less travelled that yields the best scenes.



Driving along, we see a driveway, which in itself is not picturesque , but oh, those beautiful trees are reason enough to stop.


Just a short drove down the main road, we spy this scene. Another view that is too lovey to pass up.




Did you see the horses? it was quite obvious that they really could care less about having their picture taken.


We head down into the St. Lupicien valley, knowing full well that the beauty is fading fast. 

Many trees have already lost their leaves, but the ones that are still dressed in color, are all the more beautiful .



The contrast of the yellow and green is spectacular .




Take note that this road is not well travelled, but look at this view. To me this looks almost like a painting. I hope that by this time you are happy that you made the choice to join me and my friend.


One more look down this road.The beauty, in my mind was just spectacular.

But we must move on. There are other things to see.



This is a long shot. 

Did you catch what I saw and what called for an immediate stop?

take a very close look,about the middle of the picture.

Do you see that white speck? 


That is a Bald Eagle.



OK, I will zoom in so we can see it better. The surprise came, when a second eagle flew into view. I am so glad we stopped.



 Well friends, that about ends our excursion for today. I am so glad you chose to join me and my friend. We had a great time exploring the beauties of nature.

This will likely be my last post with fall scenes, unless during the winter I get tired of snow, in which case we may take a look back at a few images which have not been posted.

To God be the Glory!

Judging from your photos, Manitoba has a beautiful autumn, Ruth! I loved seeing the horses at rest in the meadow and the eagle.

Thank you for your dear comment on my last blog post. I really appreciated your sharing those thoughts with me. I wanted to write back but I was nog feeling so well all week--I was fighting a stomach virus that seemed to be passing around in our area. Thankfully, I began feeling back to 100% yesterday. In these days of covid any illness is especially worrisome.

Love the photos. You certainly live in a wonderful area to take a drive. Thanks for sharing.

Sure enjoyed riding along with you. Fantastic colors. I did spot the dot but glad you zoomed in so we could see the eagle.

One of the most gorgeous rides I have ever had. With each photo, I thought "Well, THIS is my favorite, no doubt about it". But as I scrolled down, I said the same thing at every one!! The glorious trees, and the beautiful path...

It does look as if it's a canvas of beautiful Fall dress!! That one takes my breath away. And spying eagles at the end of our drive...a touch of heaven.

Hi Ruth- Beautiful Autumn Trees- thanks for taking us on yet another delightful journey. Regards. KEV.

Oh, so glad you invited us to come along on your journey! I enjoyed seeing the beautiful yellow autumn leaves, and especially against the evergreens! Each picture had something special to enjoy...the horses! Wow! But the grand finale was the picture of the eagles! You definitely have an "eagle eye" to spot that one in the before picture! And then to be blessed with not just one, but TWO eagles...that is always a double treat! So excited for you to be there at that precise moment!! God is so good to share His wonders with us...but we have to be willing to open our eyes and look!! Thank you for being one who looks with wonder! Have a blessed day. We will look forward to seeing some snow pictures too when they come. Remember, we don't get to see that down here where we live! Have a blessed week.

WOW, what a glorious ride with you and your friend. The colors are fantastic! Not something seen this far south in Florida. How exciting to see not just one but two eagles. Thank you for this lovely excursion. Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

I'm so happy that you included the roads running between those stunning trees. It makes the photo like I was riding with you. I fear I would have had to make many stops riding on that road. And the one at the very end that you said was a long shot is my favorite there's something about the way the sun picks out the place where you go into the trees that appeals to me a! What a wonderful ride you had and I would love to have been in the car with you but this is next best

George said...

Your drives are always the best -- I'm glad you invited us along. I feel so very fortunate to be able to see two bald eagles thanks to you.

Great series of fall captures

Robin said...

Ruth, such stunningly beautiful images! The Eagles are spectacular. Such a rare treat too see!

Rose said...

I am here to declare that we would travel well together! I so loved these...and every single photo needs to be a painting. I love them all...I did see the eagle but not till you mentioned it. But I would have when I expanded the view. And your photos always need to be expanded to enjoy all the more.

Debbie said...
