Favorite Fall Scenes


Two of my favorite scenes that I see while
running errands around my little village.
I especially love them in the fall!
There's hardly any color in these photos at
all, and maybe that's why I love them.
Being so gloriously grey....one of my favorite colors!

    2. I love the fact that someone like yourself, who loves the vibrant colors of autumn, also has such an appreciation for grey.

  2. Love the barns. Not sure if I could find any barns around here anymore. We used to have a few but they have been replaced by houses. Thank you for sharing yours.

    God bless.

    1. I doubt that. I think it comes naturally to you.

    1. yeah, that house is empty. And I've photographed hay rolls there for a few years now. I'm beginning to wonder if they are the same hay rolls! hahahaha....

      Delete
  6. Why do I find the bales of rolled hay fascinating?
    My favorite place to be is on a farm, though it doesn't happen often.
    Okay, so maybe it's just one of my favorite places.

    1. They are kinda neat, aren't they? My mom used to make stuffed flank steak and the slices looked like those rolled bales. I think of that meal every time I see them. haha. It's been ages since I made that, too....should do something about that!

  7. oh there is a splash of color there in the trees
    and that makes it worth it...smiles

    1. bleed them out? You mean like photoshop? No, I didn't...they are just like I could see them only using my eyes!...that's what I loved about them....so neutral and beautiful. :)

    1. Isn't it pretty? I always have to look when I drive by!

  13. Gloriously grey...I love those two words side by side. While I am a fan of bright colors, I am always drawn to the softer shades all around us. After all, if it weren't for the quiet of the greys and the light browns, we would not be able to appreciate the beauty of more vibrant colors.

  14. Both pictures are beautiful in their own and different ways, but I do love the first one, I would want to rescue the house and then sit outside looking across the field if I lived in your village. I think that grey in the landscape is a bit like green in the garden, the perfect background to show off all of the other colours! xx

    1. exactly....it is the perfect background! And it would be so fun if you lived there! You might want to roll a few of those hays bales out of your window view, though. ha.

  15. I never tire of these scenes either. I stop, and take a picture to record what I see. Often they end up being deleted, but I do that ritual over and over. The farms are magical to me...glad you feel that way too.

  16. Is it too early to start lurking for your evening post? I'm teasing, of course, but anxious to see what you will post today.

  17. So beautiful Betsy, your posts always make me appreciate Autumn. As I'm sure I've said here before some times I really just don't dig Autumn, the darkness and coldness is so off putting for me but your blog makes me appreciate it so much more and I hope that appreciation continues for a good time to come.
