I hear tell it’s getting CLOSE TO CHRISTMAS. Do you think the rumors are true? XD Since it is still November, I thought I’d show you guys some last fall photos I haven’t posted yet before the advent countdown officially begins. I absolutely LOVE how some of these turned out, and I hope you will too!
First, some pretty foliage by the Cedar House. For some reason the leaves were much more vibrant at this part of our farm.
I usually don’t like this editing technique, but I couldn’t resist this time, because it made the leaves pop so much more! Plus the fence and grass weren’t very attractive in the gloomy, cloudy light.
Aren’t the old fences picturesque? 🙂 And doesn’t that straight line of pines at the horizon look slightly strange? Like a green caterpillar or something…
Maybe it’s just me, but colors sometimes seem brighter when they’re just blurs…
I walked down to the pond to collect some pretty leaves for bouquets, and found several stunning little sweet gum trees!
The pictures might not show it very well, but this tiny tree had the richest, reddest leaves I have EVER seen.
Ahh, aren’t they beautiful?
Even better, they were hanging over water. SO. PRETTY.
Okay, this is definitely one of my favorite photos in this post. It’s so clear and bright and beautiful, plus I LOVE water drops and ripples… and just water, mostly. XD
Change of scene! XD This is Megan’s donkey, Eeyore, seen through a haze of fall leaves.
Another change of scene! The rest of the photos in this post were taken on a Sunday walk my family and I went on around our farm. Exploring the farm with my family is one of my favorite things; it’s always refreshing and quite fun.
AHHH ANOTHER FAVORITE! Because 1) Look, it’s a purple flower! Purple is my favorite color, and it’s pretty rare to find anything purple in nature; 2) the golden light… *sighs with happiness*; 3) BOKEH. You knew I was going to say that, didn’t you? 😉
Even though this picture is pretty similar, I had to include it because look at that interesting and beautiful sun flare on the right! It has stars and rainbows and everything! XD
Another pretty flower, golden light, bokeh, and sun flare. 🙂 It looks summery, doesn’t it?
Oops, heh. I was having too much fun with those flowers. XD But this is one of my very favorite kinds of photography. ❤
We collected pretty leaves on this walk too, and I think Carmen volunteered for a picture with one of the branches (or else I just asked her). 😉 Also, look at the rainbow flare!
She makes a very good model, don’t you think? 😀 ❤
I’m really enjoying the ferns sprinkled all over our woods. They’re so delicate and pretty.
OOH! ❤ Kind of a cliche photography idea, but a pretty one, nonetheless. I love how lacy the leaves look from this angle.
My siblings found an old hunting stand that was badly in need of repair, and decided to repair it. I’m not sure if they’ve finished it by now or not, but they worked on it for a good while. Oh, and they named it Rivendell. XD XD
I wouldn’t have included this picture except JEFF! HAHA, look to the right of the picture. Yep, that’s a machete. He loves to hack weeds, oh dear. (Don’t worry, we stay out of the way. 😛 )
I love going to this spot at the golden hour because the light transforms the brown, dried grass into strands of copper and gold and bronze. Ahhhhh…
I love this one! (I say that too often, but only because it’s true! XD) Dad’s coat blends in with the other colors, but still stands out since it’s lined with sun.
Dried goldenrod can be gorgeous, can’t it? I wish I had a heart eyes emoji on my computer…
AHHHHH, these pictures make me happy! 😀
This looks posed, but it’s not. They just lined up like that on their own. 😛 I think Carmen, Jeff, and Megan headed back a little earlier than the rest of us so they could make pancakes and sausage gravy for supper. 🙂
Carmen likes to pick flowers for Mom’s hair. 😉 Does this purple one look familiar?
Okay, dried sumac isn’t the prettiest, but I went to so much trouble and through so many weeds to see if I could get a good picture that I’m posting it anyway. So there. 😛
Last but not least, a fieldscape. Is that a word? Apparently spellcheck thinks it isn’t…
Ahh, that was fun. I love writing and taking pictures for these kinds of posts – I hope you enjoy reading them!
Which picture was your favorite? Do you like sun flares? Have the leaves fallen off the trees where you live now too? And have you started listening to Christmas music? I usually wait till December, but I couldn’t resist this year… XD
Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
