Colours of Fall

I’ve had a wonderful, exciting summer filled with travel near and far and many amazing photo opportunities.  Managing my time and my photos has been overwhelming so my blogging took a hiatus!  Over the next few months, I will share my summer favourite pictures from the farm and from Europe.

Today, with Canadian Thanksgiving just 2 days away, I’ve decided to post some photos that I took the last 2 days while Joe was nearby harvesting soybeans on one of our farms. I was totally unprepared for what I saw in a 10 minute period yesterday morning…..and unfortunately, the lighting and my camera settings weren’t quite right.  I guess you’d call the shots of this lone coyote “record” shots and the pileated woodpecker as well .  Let’s just say, I wouldn’t consider entering them in competitions at the Oshawa Camera Club .  I hope that you enjoy them. I was “thankful” to have seen them. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Jane I think your pictures are beautiful!
    My husband wonders if you ever take photos of old railroad tracks and the bridges over them?

    • Hi Sharon,
      Glad you liked the photos. There are more to come!
      The only photos I have of an old railway bridge is the one one Lakeshore Rd. just east of Newcastle. I will send one to you.

    Hi Jane Thanks ever so much for sharing. There is always something so serene and beautiful about the pictures that you take. They always make me feel so good. Hope you and Joe had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    Take care

    • Thanks so much for your response. I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Joe and I are both doing fine. He just finished harvesting soybeans so some of the pressure is off. Hope all is well with you.

    Great selections, Jane I see you’ve been busy. Too bad you didn’t crop the coyote, so we could see more details, but perhaps you couldn’t because online posting prevents that. Hope you and Joe had a good Thanksgiving we were in Port Severn for (and before) Thanksgiving for some relaxation. No birds, except for a Great Blue Heron, which staked out a spot on the river for four days in a row. Will send some photos over the next few days we’re busy cleaning out the garage, and cleaning up the garden.

    Say hello to Joe hope the soybeans were plentiful, and that harvesting is over by now.

  4. I think these photos are beautiful, considering you were not prepared for the conditions you were in. Bird photography is a challenge, they move quickly from one place to another and the lighting conditions changes rapidly. I always admire your bird photos.
    I love the photo of the brown bird and blue jay in flight !
    I hope you have a happy week Jane 🙂

    • You are right, Jocelyn. Bird photography is a challenge. Lately I’ve been trying to do more landscapes as there seem to be fewer birds in my area this late summer and Fall. Perhaps the winter will bring more to my feeders.
