Autumn scenes from the frozen tundra

But we’re not frozen yet!!  It’s been a beautiful autumn with wonderful oranges, yellows and reds everywhere you look as well as unseasonably warm days, into the 70s the last part of October.  It’s been great!!  You can probably guess that I’ve been photographing these beautiful colors and I’d like to share some with you.  I hope you enjoy.

Autumn colors in Minnesota

This year’s autumn colors have been spectacular!  Please enjoy some of my favorite autumn shots.

We took a stroll along the Mississippi one weekend and the colors were brilliant!

The rose bush in our yard managed to produce some late blooming flowers. Here’s one of them:

Finally, here are two spectacular sunrises I managed to capture.  One was a few days before autumn officially began:

autumn redux

It’s been a remarkably warm and mild autumn here in the frozen tundra. And to keep my mind off the tragedy in Paris, I thought I’d put together some photos I took of the beautiful autumn colors we are still enjoying. I cannot recall an autumn since I have lived here in Minnesota where we had this much color into November.

These photos are from late October and early to mid November. These first three are of the same shrub. Such beautiful colors!

Next up are some that I took on walks around campus for breaks at work. Here are some lovely colors as seen through my lens:

Lastly, some other fall images in the past two weeks:

Keeping the people of France and all others affected in my thoughts and prayers.

a collection of autumn scenes

It’s been a fairly nice fall season here in the frozen tundra and I’ve been able to get outside for walks amongst the beauty of the changing leaves.  Today we took a walk around the lake at the park and below are some of those scenes.  It’s a beautiful time of year!! Especially when the weather is agreeable :)

Street scenes:

Some colorful leaves up close:

Finally some scenes from the park today:

Probably our last two cukes of the season. Look how big one of them got!!

And for all the Fritz fans, here he is in the weeds:

a few fun fall photos

How about that alliteration huh?  Phonetically speaking anyway.  I thought I’d share some photos I’ve taken in the last couple of weeks that I like.

Fall colors reflected in the still pond:

A maple in the midst of changing colors:

And a very odd delicata squash, a fall favorite of mine. Ignore the fork marks. I forgot to take a photo before I cooked it:
