My world at sunset in autumn


I decided it was time to take a few pictures yesterday evening.  Two simultaneous events encouraged the decision.... noticing that most of the leaves had fallen from a favorite tree overnight and the sun was setting, creating the most beautiful colors behind the... color.


I decided not to interrupt my husband's obvious interest in his favorite daily sports show, Chicago Tribune Live, so I made my way out to the county road alone. 

Thus, it was a very puzzled hubby who was on the front porch when I walked back up our small gravel lane later, saying he was wondering where in the world I could be.


I was walking rather fast, explaining to him that as I was taking pictures of the forest, something moved quickly... running away at such speed that I only saw the movement of bushes and leaves.  He logically explained it could be a squirrel or a possum or a rabbit or even a deer. 

Hmmm... I just assumed it was Bigfoot.

Anyhoo... below are more pictures of my world in October.  :)

Well, your world is a very lovely place this fall. Ours is nice too at the moment. I need to remember to get out an enjoy it, for in no time the trees will be bare and the air frigid. Oh, by the way - I would have assumed Bigfoot also. God Bless! :)

Lovely photos...lovely time of year! Maybe you should leave a little note taped to the door though, next time? However, I always think a little worry from husbands in such cases, is not bad.
Blessings,

Beautiful pictures! Thank you for sharing.

Sometimes when I've been walking, the "view in" upon my arrival home is the view that takes my breath away most of all...

I'm new to your blog; it's a lovely place which I believe I'll stop and visit more often! :-)
