Signs of Fall – But I’m Not Ready…

Nancy Merrill Photography challenges on her Photo a Week Challenge:  A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF THINGS THAT MEAN FALL TO YOU.

Oh, dear. I knew it was too good to be true.  Can you see it? Look close! It’s right in my front yard. It’s coming and I’m not ready. It’s coming and there’s nothing I can do about it! I really find it hard to believe that we’re already ending summer and beginning autumn. Living here in the Blue Ridge Mountains, I am anxiously waiting to see what our fall foliage will look like come the middle of October. Hopefully, I’ll be posting autumn leaves again in a prettier format!

See the red leaves among the green? The leaves are already starting to turn. Fall followed by cold weather can’t be long away. I might have mentioned on previous occasions that I’m not a fan of the cold. But one good thing — I do love the fall colors and we’re right in the heart of it come October!

One Word Photo Challenge: Hummingbird

This week, Jennifer has chosen Hummingbird as her word of the week. I have a couple of hummingbird photos that I took recently after borrowing a friend’s older Canon DSLR to play around with. I’m afraid most of my shots came out blurry. But I’d like to say it’s because the hummingbird wouldn’t hold still and the camera was sooo heavy and ….. Besides, I wasn’t ready….. Would you believe the rope was bobbing? Fine, I’m going back to my iPhone5! 😛
