A few more of that day I sped around town snapping fall pictures.



This has always been one of my favorite places. I like to run out into the dark and freezing fields in the winter and feel the icy wind pierce my lungs of a morning. (You would love this place, Dawn!)



A snif here, a snif there ... detail beckoned...



This is where the wind actually blows in our valley, part of the reason why I love coming here; I can stand at the top of this hill and see grandeur for miles (in the wintertime I fancy myself living in North-west Middle-Earth. I will be sure to post pictures of that when the time comes, and snow has fallen heavily on all those trees!)




I always stop running when I see this church. It is nestled in the center of town and stands tall and noble in its native dale.

Oh wow. I WOULD love it. I know I would. I got shivers just imagining myself running through all that.
How blessed you are to have that as your running track.
Thank you for sharing the pictures. I found myself wishing the camera had a larger lens- wanting to see just what was around the next corner.....

Love your leaf capture. Did you lay down to take that one?
:))
Can't wait to see what YOUR winter looks like....

Have a wonderful day!!
:)

I did lay down... on the ground...one leg straight up in the air to keep my balance. What an awful sight that must have been. :D heehee

Hi Allison! I read your comment on my blog about recycling candle wax (haha!) and followed you here. I'm so glad I did!

I love the photographs. Each one could be a calendar photo -- just lovely.

So glad to meet you and look forward to getting to know you as well. :)

Just gloriousness all around! I love it!

Yes, I'd love it if a photographer was around to follow the photographer at times. Would have loved to see your ground shots! :)

Have another beautiful fall day, dear!!!

P.S. The dead bat would not have been a good find on the doorstep. Could have had rabies?! Eek!

Like the orange leaves with berries. The fallen leaves are a nice shot also.The new Eric Clapton CD has a cover song of Auttumn Leaves which stays with me while I am out.
