Sunday Stills ~ Landscapes (Fall Foliage)



I couldn't help but chuckle with this week's Sunday Stills photo challenge...sorry Ed ;~)

Freeze dried doesn't produce much color...but it was still fun finding something that was typical for our area here in the high desert.




Colt and I rode to the top of our hill.
There's lots of dried out grass on the ridge
where the horses don't frequent too often.
As a desert lover, I think it's beautiful.






We had a nice frost last week. This is my
favorite time of day...as the sun starts coming up.
I like the golden hue with a lil' bit of fog as
Brego and Whiskey come up for breakfast.






Ahhhhh color!!!
It may not be on the tree...but it's in the tree!

Oh how beautiful! There is beauty in all the subtle shades of the various grasses, rocks, dirt, etc... It's God's country. And what better way to contrast the sublet, but with the glorious sky! Be it a sunset, sunrise, or just a big ol' beautiful blue sky. Wonderful photo's. Love and Light, Nina P.

There is beauty even in the subtle colors of the desert, too. You did good. And I loved the morning light giving Whiskey and Brego halos. :)

Oh, how I love the high desert! Born and raised in Central Oregon. Wish so much I could live there again. Most likely won't happen until retirement. You live in a beautiful place and it's evident that you know that and appreciate it too.

Ha! You know I thought about what it might be like photographing Harney County for this challenge. Then I realized I've take a handful of fall photos. It's called sunset, silly girl!
