Let’s Take a Fall Jaunt

In other seasons we get so excited over a few spots of color and ecstatic over a drift of color. But in the fall there are acres and miles of color a hundred feet deep mirrored and reflected in lakes and rivers and we are immersed in a warm autumn palette. The whole world is a canvas wet with paint. 



Pasture and Pond



Long White Fence



Willow By Stream



Hill and Dale









Beaver Dam Creek



Lone Rider



Old Spencer Mill Road



Home Again

No matter where we go, it is always good to come home.

    Outstand pictures capturing this great land…

    Thank you, Skeeter. I wish someone would put up amber waves of grain.

    What a beautiful trip you’ven taken us on. Was all of this in TN? I would love to revisit your trip in real life! It’s so pretty!

    Yes, it is all Tennessee, DP. Just get out and drive around.

    You have beautiful vistas to photograph Donna. Tennessee is ablaze in color!

    Oh, would I love to be the one riding that horse! Your willow photo is beautiful, all are so pretty…but the willow is my favorite!

    Do you have one by your pond, SD?

    Hi Donna, such beautful scenery and great job capturing it for us to enjoy. The willow is special and the road less traveled divine, as is the creek.

    Until you mentioned it I didn’t think road less traveled. Perhaps it should have diverged. There was a yellow wood and everything. 😉

    Was so hoping to get to our NC mountain property this fall for just this type of color. Thank you so much for sharing these! Our trip got cancelled, but you more than made up for it with these beautiful photos.

    I love NC also, Stormy. Glad the photos were a consolation.

    Oh, Donna what wonderful pictures. The Beaver Dam creek, the grass and the Spencer Mills Road are worthy to be in a Calendar. I just get dreamy when I see a Weeping Willow tree, which I had the space and conditions to grow one. Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous pictures!

    Thank you so much, Lona.

    Beautiful! I especially liked Old Spencer Mill road.

    It looked like no one had been down that road in days… Not enough traffic to blow the leaves off the road. There was also a spot where the creek crossed the road that was a little deeper than expected.

    Extraordinary photos, Donna! Love the picture of the long white fence, and the beaver dam, especially. You’re right — Autumn is certainly Nature’s finest canvas.

    Thanks, Nancy. Fences are a topic in themselves.

    Just beautiful. Home, yes, the best!

    Looks like you took them from my house. Our lay of the land is similar. We are just a bit behind you in the season. I think it’s at peak this week. It is so beautiful. I think you should post a 4 season time travel for your Beaver Dam Creek pic. I bet you have them all. I love to come home. I am a stay at home gal.

    Great fall photos….and I know it must be even more glorious in real life.

    I had so much fun looking at our Tennessee… Thank you! Your photos were wonderful, especially lone rider! Gail

    I’m not much of a sports woman, Gail, but it made me want to take off on a horse. What a great way to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

    What a beautiful fall you are having.

    It is raining so it will be even better tomorrow.
