Rose Canyon: Four

This is my favorite of the Rose Canyon shots. I loved how the multi-colored scrub oak  on the hills makes such a lovely and interesting backdrop for the dead branches in the foreground.

Rose Canyon: One

This Canyon is somewhat unique in the valley. It is not thickly forested, but it is still beautiful this time of year.

Sky Watch: Autumn Sky

I was so thrilled to see this through my lens. The clouds were so white, the sky so blue and the leaves so exactly Autumn. Hope you're enjoying the changes, too.

More SkyWatch Here.

Here's to Scrub Oak.

Sometimes a shot is just much better than you think it will be, which was the case with this shot.

Lovely Golden Rain.

I headed up into the mountains today to see what I could find. I have wanted to do some Fall photography for a while. I had the day off work, and the weather was perfect. How often does that happen. The funniest thing is that I took this shot in my mother's front yard. It is one of my favorites, although Rose Canyon did not disappoint.

Highly Reflective.

I was standing with one foot on the seat of my car and the other on the door's armrest. I spent most of the time looking up, but when I looked down this is what greeted me. I though it was a nice greeting.

Sky Watch: Above the clouds.

This was a lovely, bright winter morning. It snowed this morning, lightly - still a bit unusual for October. The mountains, this one being Lone Peak, still had a dusting of snow and the clouds were still fairly low when I took this shot. It looks a little like I'm floating or flying somewhere but I'm really just on the other side of the valley fairly high up on the foothills of the opposite mountains.

Fall is Full Fields, Tractors and Barns.

Some of the trees in the mountains have started to turn, but many are still green. This year was a good water year and so the colors should be wonderful. I loved how the red barn and tractor looked here - pretty as a picture. Yes sir. . . and now they are.

Fall is Corn Mazes.

Near my home is one of the valley's most popular corn mazes. The trees are still green but that won't last long. The pumpkins and the tall dry corn say "Fall" to me.

Wintery Sunrise.

I know it's only October but it was beginning to snow when I shot these. It feels like winter, and it looks like winter, except for the leaves left on the trees.
My five year old said, "Mom, it's Christmas! We missed Halloween. Halloween is supposed to come before Christmas!"
