Scenes of late summer
Just sharing a few photos I took on Friday. I admit to having no photography expertise of any kind; these are just some pretty scenes I saw around the neighborhood on Friday morning.
The first few, including the one at top, were taken on the grassy bank of a brook, just as a heavy fog was beginning to lift. I took these around 7:30 on Friday morning and got my feet very wet from dew in the process.
In the photos above and below, you can barely see what I was hoping to capture -- pink joe-pye weed, white and purple asters, and yellow goldenrod. The pink flowers are near the center of each photo, just down from the top. The fog really prevented them from being seen well.
When I got back home, the sun was shining brighter in a few areas around the yard and it beckoned me to snap just a few more photos.
A pretty leaf on the patio walkway.
Lush ferns by an old mossy stone wall.
Wooden steps over a stone wall, surrounded by green, green foliage.
All too soon, fall will be here. In my limited way, I wanted to capture just a bit of the late-summer beauty while it is still with us.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
