So beautiful pictures! I especially love the one with the bridge across the lake - I would have this one made as one of those wallpaper photographs
Wow Pat, these pictures are soooooo beautiful!!!
Patsi; amazing photos , fall is such a beautiful season... you captured it beautifully!
You have captured such great details of nature. Charming!Cameron
Just gorgeous pictures. It reminds me so much of the terrain around here. I would love to have that big drift wood piece from the creek ;-)
Gosh, it sure is beautiful and so peaceful. The geese photos are awesome!Dave at The Home Garden is hosting a garden blogger fall color project if interested. Fall color from all over.
Beautiful pictures- especially the ones with the trees and water.
Beautiful park, and wonderful picts. I love the ones of the geese bathing! Stop by my blog for a walk in my park.
"Looks like the kids were having fun.They usually stock our lake with fish but didn't see any.I have to see were in the dessert you live to get cool temps."We have a good time down there, the fish are ocean run chinook salmon, the lake is a tributary of the Columbia River. The desert we live in is called The Columbia Basin, it is a rain shadow desert between the Cascade and Blue mountain ranges. During the winter the temps can get as low as -20f but usually hang out around -5 to -10f.
Patsi, I don't think I will ever tire of seeing beautiful fall photos such as these. I especially like the ones of the ducks! And the moss! And the birds in the tree! And......!!!
Autumn is such a magical time...the colours and relections in some of your photographs is beautiful....Moss toadstools and lichens are three of my favourite things and this is such a good time of year for them....
I always love seeing fall color reflected in water. What a great shot of the goose! Was he doing some type of somersault? :)
Gorgeous, Patsi! Just gorgeous! I really like that clam shaped fungi and the water's reflection. We are lucky to enjoy such wonders right in our 'backyard' :)
Hi there Patsi, spotted this wonderful photographic collection this morning and planned to return to leave a comment later and I see you beat me to it ;-)I really love to see park postings especially at this time of year. I love the trees and the mossy shots especially. However the shot that really made me smile and catch my imagination was the one with the dead tree coming out of the water. To me... it looked like some prehistoric species of bird about to take off into flight :-oWishing you a great weekend :-D
Vrtlarica,My screen saver changes every other month. I just love being around water.~~Shanny,Been over working lately...have to stop by to visit.~~Rosemary and Cameron,Glad you enjoyed. Details are pretty interesting.~~Lona,I thought about taking home a few things. lol~~Tina,The geese were having a good time.Think it's a little late to be adding Daves link.But thanks.~~LotusLeaf,Reflections are kinda cool.~~Lee,The geese were bathing non stop.I have to google where you live...a rain shadow dessert is new to me. Sounds most interesting and temps lower then here. Our lowest winters have been about 20 degrees, we live about 3 miles from the ocean so it's warmer than it is inland.See last post.~~Kylee,The birds were a blast to watch.~~CherylThe moss and the mushrooms...just amazed me.I love those pictures.~~Catherine,The geese were bathing...diving in,splashing like crazy,heads under water and feet in the airSo much fun to watch!~~Lynn,New Jersey rules ! Although I love to travel and see new places and things....we have lots to offer.~~Shirl,Yes yes !!...prehistoric species of bird or dinosaur, that's what it reminded me of also.
Hi Patsi, you have started my day with visions of fall beauty, thanks! I love the reflections in the water of the colors and the starkness of the tree parts sans life! :-)Frances
You have some lovely photos. I love the shots showing reflections in the water. It has to be a perfect day to find that still water and just the right slant of sunlight.Marnie
Great photos. They are so relaxing. Fall is a wonderful time for photography if you can find time to get out.
Wonderful photos and does the great winged driftwood look like a creature to you, too? gail ps Really excellent!
You have a keen eye, Patsi, and captured 'good stuff' at the park :)
Frances,Most welcome.I find the common and oddest things interesting.~~Marnie,Water and land...a nice balance...I think.~~Chad,Did you say time ?Can't get time off and doing work at home.I think it's called making time...as you noticed I don't post that often lately.:(~~Gail,I saw so many things that got my attention.Lucky to get some good pics.~~Joey,I agree. Thanks.
There are some fantastic shots here Patsi - I love the trees reflected in the water, the moss and the leaf, and .... - well, okay, all of them really!I am bereft - my camera has broken (something to do with being stuffed in the pockets of my gardening clothes once too often I suspect!), so I can't capture all the glorious colours .... but at least I can get them vicareously through you :)
So far this year Austin's fall color has been limited to green (an improvement over summer's brown). But how lovely it is to have such a range of colors and a real feeling of autumn. Makes me want to drink hot chocolate and eat some apple pie.
Ruth,You've been stuffing your camera in your pocket? Naughty girl. haHope you can get a new camera soon.~~Zanthan,Could'nt really get the full range of colors do to tons of rain at peak season. But do feel the various photos are interesting. Glad to hear it's cooling off in your neck of the woods...change is nice.
I love fall. It's my favorite season.I love the color of the leaves. Awesome!!
Thanks for your visit and comment.Glad to answer questions when I visit you...Making life easier is a good thing.
