Sunday Stills: Signs of Fall

This challenge was more difficult than one would think, since we've been experiencing temperatures in the 80s and 90s the past week. But the nights are getting chilly and the sun is definitely at a different angle.

Our full-on fall colors won't arrive for another 2-3 weeks. Generally around the opening of waterfowl season.

So here's what I captured yesterday in the neighborhood. Can you guess the dumb luck shots?

I love to watch the trees on this street change color.

First blush of fall.

Walking beneath oak trees is dangerous this time of year. Duck!

Peekaboo deer.

When you gotta itch you gotta scratch.

The last roses of the year.

I grabbed my camera when I took Indy for a walk yesterday afternoon. I'd been scouting the neighborhood for possible shots and had a couple of things I wanted to capture. As we're hiking through the Xerox campus a fellow walker alerted me to a family of deer up ahead. So we slowed our pace and gradually approached the deer as I took pictures with my zoom lens. With no tripod, you can guess that most of the pictures were blurred. But a few turned out and I've shared a couple here. How lucky was that?!

Great deer, they love acorns. My horse like them too. They fall on the dirt road, it rains, they soak, cars drive over them......processed!

Oh..I'd say all of them turned out, quite nicely!!
I love the hint of crimsom on the tips of the tree lined street, the best!
Great views!
