Today was a beautiful day - cool, sunny - just the day for a long walk. We took one of our longer routes today. It's 6 miles total (at times it seems like it's up hill both ways). I took my treo and grabbed a bunch of pictures. Sadly I'm not even a good photographer - these were of the point, shoot, pray variety. I can't tell what they look like on the tiny screen of the treo, I can only really see them when I get them on my computer.
The first pictures come at the halfway point. Up til then, I was looking around and taking in the changing leaves and fall flowers. This is from about 1/4 of the way up the side of a long hill. (Yes these are all thumbnails, click to enlarge)
At the top of the hill is a view in the opposite direction of the other picture.
Back at the bottom of the hill is a field. In the first picture you can see just a bit of it - looks like a lawn from up higher. This is surrounded by hills and more trees (yes we live in a forest). Because of the sun in the background, the picture fades out a bit - gives it a soft quality.
This next one, I obviously didn't account for the sunlight, but I think it turned out kinda cool. I was trying to get a picture of the gorgeous purple flowers. It was someone's yard and I didn't want to trespass, so I stood on the road to take the picture.
There are wildflowers growing all over the sides of the road. At one particular spot (the first of the next 4 pictures), there is a short rock wall and then a stream behind that. The stream is mostly overgrown and can't really be seen very well, but it sounds lovely as you walk next to it. Along with the varying colors of leaves everywhere, the next several pictures are those of wildflowers, planted flowers, and some lovely leaves.
The last is one of the roads near our house. The trees aren't fully turning color yet, but they're starting.

And I love the sun shine on the flowers shot... If you hadn't said something, I'd have thought you planned it that way.

We are getting some good fall color around here. (It looks weird since it's 83 today....) But the chill will return, I'm sure.
