Still chasing autumn

I took my camera, yesterday, on the way to drop off a couple more things at the gallery.


The sun was shining on everything.


Across the lake.
We've lost so many trees to emerald ash borer.


More dead ash trees.
Our considerable stock of wood for the studio stove for the last couple of winters has been ash trees cleared out from neighboring properties.


Another stop, another maple.


 Pictures don't do this oak all its due.


My favorite over arching. I've presented it in all seasons. 


From the other side. The cable company has no idea how I despise that cable, especially knowing no one watches TV any more.


From the underside. There were twice as many leaves yesterday; however, the weather was half as lovely.



When I dropped off my two things at the gallery, Diane, the owner was there.
"Let me help you, what do you need?" she said.
"Just a couple of hangers. I can get them." (From my tub of empty hangers in the bin in the back room.)
"No, here, I got them. Look, two right on top, not put away from the last that was sold."

I may like the looks of my check at month's end.

  6. Glorious fall pictures. They illustrate why the fall is my favorite time of year. I love the sound of leaves runching under my feet. I hope you are rewarded mightily at the end of the month.

    1. I'm not looking for that much, but empty hangers is a good sign.

  12. Empty hangers are good. Sad to see the trees die, but such a joy to see those that have survived in their fall glory. I love those canopies also.

  14. The booming sales make your last post even more poignant. Success - derailed by lack of affordable supplies :(

    Beautiful leaves. We are having the same here!

  15. The trees are just not up to par this year,but I prefer the warmer weather that thwarts their colours.

  18. I love shaded roadways. Australia could use a few of those!

  19. Yeah for checks at month's end every little bit helps, sad about the ash trees, we are having a spectacular fall here too I was just admiring all the colors yesterday as I drove up to the gallery and back again. This year we have peach and golden colors along with the red and yellow, too bad middle of week we are expecting a lot of rain I hope the colors last afterwards. Not much on TV these days worth watching except an occasional movie or PBS specials.

  22. the maples are beautiful. we don't really get any fall color unless we have an early cold snap. too bad about the ash trees. we lost so many pines and other trees from the severe drought several years ago.

  25. Love the canopy over the road. We used to live in Tallahassee and there are quite a few roads there canopied with trees. Love to drive down those roads.

  26. Always carry your camera the professional photographers tell us. You captured some good examples of some brightly colored fall trees. -- barbara

  27. What??? No one watches TV anymore? We still do in my neck of the woods. In fact, my TV is never off! Sounds like you are doing very well at the Studio!
