the view before and after and some fall scenes

This is a view that we enjoy when we go for our walks and we also drive by it a lot too.  The view changed recently.

May 2013

What's the difference?  

September 15, 2013

The big spruce trees that were in this field on the hill are gone.
Another victim of the big storm a couple of weeks ago.

Nature can change the landscape in an instant.

But, thankfully, the view is still there.

Another difference is that the first photo was taken with my Canon point and shoot camera and the last two with my phone.

These next 3 photos were taken with my phone too.

A local farmer was tedding the crop in this field recently.  It has since been baled and taken to the barn.

This is the pasture next to where the farmer was working.
You can see the colour in the trees already.

It's been rainy and very cool here the past 2 days but by Thursday it is to clear off and be sunny and very warm for the weekend.

The trees are changing each day and the leaves are falling but we haven't reached peek colour yet.  It will be a couple of more weeks for that and hopefully they'll still be beautiful for our Thanksgiving holiday on October 14th. 

Thank you for all your visits and comments on my recent posts.
I appreciate every one of you who stop by.

Have a great day!




  1. You take beautiful pictures. It is amazing how Mother Nature works....Christine

  2. Lovely scenic photos . The trees here are either starting to change or half the trees have already changed whilst the other half catches up lol . It has been lovely and sunny here with cool breezes will be for the rest of the week . Talking about trees we have a lot of wood to chop and store now from the two big trees they took down today ! Thanks for sharing ! Have a good evening !

  3. wow, i love the mowed shot. awesome views. sorry to hear you had to lose the tree - that stinks. ( :
    looks rainy.

  4. Love the farmers photos, - it brings back memories of my growing up years on the farm. : )

  5. Interesting changes in your view. Lots of color, too. At this rate, how long before peak foliage?

  6. Lovely view, with or without the tree. We see a lot of leaves falling here too, makes you wonder what kind of color we'll have in a few weeks, or will it all be on the ground? Let's hope not. I'm hoping for spectacular color this fall... Will we ever get a nice warm sunny day to go to KL? Did you get to Copperhead yet?

  7. Fall certainly is in the air. We, too, have had a lot of rain and one caution has been to watch for falling trees since so much rain has loosened the soil around their root systems.. Too bad a outt the pine tree, but beautiful scenery.

  8. Hi Pamela, Even without the tree, it is a gorgeous view and one that you must really appreciate. Your phone does do a very good job of taking pictures. A lot of phones are not as nice as yours when it comes to picture taking. October 12 is your Thanksgiving? That is very nice. I kind of wish ours was earlier. It usually is very dark and dreary here for Thanksgiving. It is wonderful to get together with family though. Will your daughter be coming home for Thanksgiving this year?

    I hope you have a very blessed week.
    Until the next time....

  9. So sad about those trees, but what can you do? I can almost smell the freshly cut hay -- thank you for taking us along Pamela.

  10. Pamela
    That was quite a storm to take down that huge tree!
    I do see the changes there, for sure Fall is very close.
    We were so surprised when we arrived home to see what changes had occurred in just one week!
    Have a great day-Kimberly

  11. That was an abrupt change in the landscape, wasn't it? Fall is closing in, that's for sure. I'm looking forward to the colored leaves and then the wind sweeping them off the trees. Your photos are lovely - Iphones take pretty good photos, I've found.

  12. Too bad about the trees and it is a magnificent view. I can't tell the difference between the two cameras, the phones have come a long way.

  13. Your photos are beautiful, it seems no matter which you use to take your photos they are perfect! Poor trees, I guess it was time for them to go, eh?
    The view is gorgeous, I love the rolling views that you have there in New Brunswick. Only a few places here have that kind of view.
    have a good day

  14. What a shame that another tree has suffered, however the view is stunning. We have had very warm weather after a spate of cold and I really need Autumn to make its mind up :-) x

  15. Amazing how much a tree adds to a landscape scene! You'll be missing that for a time, but it's also amazing how quickly you forget a tree once it's gone.

  16. I'm always amazed what great pictures the phones take! Beautiful scenes...all of them. Sorry you lost a few trees from your familiar landscape to a storm.

  17. How lovely to enjoy the countryside the way you do..
    Are you taking those Geraniums in for the winter???
    Did you drag your hubby to look at some Grasses yet? ha!

    Linda :o)

  18. Too bad about the trees, but the landscape is gorgeous! Very nice shots!

  19. Such gorgeous countryside! Too bad about the Spruce trees though! My phone photos never turn out as good as yours!

  20. I always feel sad to see a tree felled by a storm. The park I walked in in New York lost many beautiful trees the last years I lived there. The high mountains will be at peak color here this weekend, but I will miss seeing it this year. Autumn passes so quickly in this region!

  21. You take amazing pictures. There used to be an apple tree in the middle of the field at the back of my cottage, but it was destroyed by a storm we had last winter.

  22. Great pictures . . . how fast things can change! Sad to see the big spruce trees toppled.
    Your phone takes great pictures!
    No doubt about it . . . the season has arrived!

  23. You have such glorious views, Pamela. There is plenty of "scope for imagination" as Anne of Green Gables would say.
