Scenic Sabbath

We don't have a lot of fall color at Boulderneigh yet, but there is plenty in the area to enjoy. I stopped and snapped the photo below when I entered the church parking lot this morning; the blazing color put me in a right-worshipful mood.

Yesterday afternoon I got to take Russell for a short ride down the road. The vista from our gravel drive was spectacular; one small photo can't do it justice - although if I'd remembered to use the panorama setting on my new camera, I might have come closer.

Three rows into the vineyard along the road, I spotted some red leaves among the green ones. Since I haven't yet trained Russell to hold his breath and stand absolutely still, but needed the height from his back to capture the shot, I snapped away without much hope of a successful capture. When I downloaded the memory card to my laptop and saw the photo below, I felt like I'd bagged a trophy!

That's it for now from . . .

You did good.. those 2 red leaves stand out so brillantly...It was a perfect day here...very sunny and just nice enough one could go outside without a jacket.

Wow - two picture postcard prints at once - love the one with the grape leaves especially! T.

Wow, thanks so much! I'm a little envious of your fantastic views. And the grapevine picture is gorgeous. Nice job!

WOW! What gorgeous photos! Michelle, I have to say that your new camera is obviously doing a great job. Of course, it takes a good photographer to compose the shot. I agree with Tina. These could all be postcards.
