A rainy day in the fall can bring out the best of colours in the landscape.
Hi everyone. I hope you don't mind but I have a few more fall pictures to share with you. The colour as been spectacular this past week and I'm always ready to take pictures of it whether walking or driving in the car. Because one can't always take their camera with them every where they go it's handy to have a cell phone that can slip into a pocket of a purse, jacket or jeans. They take pretty good pictures too so I am sharing some that I took this past week when it was raining and I didn't have my big camera with me. Most of the photos were taken on dark cloudy days so I had to lighten them a bit. I hope you aren't tired of seeing them! :-)
I tweaked this one a bit in Picasa.
Note the bare trees along the hedgerow. I can't believe how fast the leaves are dropping.
Soon our scenery will be browns and greys and dark green ~ the dullness of late fall until the snow starts to cover the landscape.

I found a few pretty roads in our area the other day in the rain. It was pouring rain when I took this picture between wiper swipes.
If you look closely at the rise of the road you'll see a deer in the middle. We watched 3 deer cross the road there.
Do you use your phone's camera a lot? It sure comes in handy when you don't want to miss a photo opportunity.
It's our Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. Monday is the holiday and we will have our son and his wife join us for dinner. The weather sounds perfect for October with sunshine, a bit of cloud and typical average fall temperatures around the mid-teens Celsius. I'm hoping we'll have a real bonfire (not just burning weeds!) and do some s'mores some evening. I bought the ingredients back in June and haven't used them yet! They'll be stale by next summer so we have to make it happen. Of course the big Hersey's chocolate bar can be eaten no matter what! :-) Murray and I are going to visit Kings Landing Historical Settlement this afternoon and I can't wait. I haven't been there all summer and they close for the season on Monday.
I'd like to wish my Canadian friends a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy the holiday and don't eat too much turkey and pie.
Blessings to you!
