The colors of autumn

Duke and I ventured beyond our yard to look for some autumn color.
First I'll show you my two favorites.
This one has perhaps a little too much green in it but further down the tracks you can see the fall colors.

 Nothing spectacular but I liked it

This one was Duke's favorite. He said we had to have a picture of this.

Your second picture looks like a painting.Hope Duke keeps his favorite well watered.

Sandee said...

I like them all, but Duke getting his favorite shot in made me smile. I think our Little Bit would agree with Duke on this. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Nezzy said...

Dom would love Duke's pit stop station too :p

Sheri said...

Beautiful representation of fall. The colors sure were beautiful this year.

tahtimbo said...

Those were fantastic photos! It's like I'm standing there.

Ann Nichols said...

That Duke! Just don't post it near his bed at night - his dream might turn into a mistake!
The stream is so pretty.

Philippa said...

But the second picture IS spectacular!

Russ said...

You have to admit Duke's picture is very practical.But I like the second fall picture the best.

Jen said...

Loved that second photo; got a giggle from the third :o)

Catherine said...

All I can see is white this morning... :(

Sandra said...

i like that view down ther railroad track and tell Duke I have a collection of photos of his favorite. it amazes me how many differnt types of fire plugs there are, all differnt colors. no orange ones here yet.

livintheblues said...

great shots Ann...I had a beer and a Martinsville chili dog for you at the race...:)

B Boys Mom said...

Love the picture with the railroad tracks. And of course Duke has a great eye and I like his fav too.

fullet said...

This is true autumn beauty. I'm passionate about rivers.

Ann said...

out on the prairie, Duke does a good job of that :)

Sandee I figure if I can show you my favorite fall sights so can Duke :P

Nezzy aww thanks, I think most of the time I just get lucky with my shots :) I enjoyed your blog and look forward to my next visit

sharkbytes I wouldn't mind having that in my backyard

donna one of duke's many pit stops

LDH thanks, I just love taking pictures of train tracks

Lin Duke thanks you :)

Julie that's ok Duke realizes that not everyone will see the beauty there...lol

vanilla seven I believe he actually skipped the hydrant this time out

grace thank you very much, the last one cracked me up putting it in

beaded tail gotta have equal time for Duke

anny duke says if dom every wants to visit he'll show it to him in person

sheri they have been much better than what I expected

tahtimbo thanks, breathe in that fresh fall air :)

ann oh that would be horrible, especially since he sleep right by my bed...lol

philippa aw thanks, I guess I don't see it as anything much because I know what the surrounding area looks like and it takes away from the sight

Russ that one is my favorite too.

Jen I giggled while I was doing the post

catherine eww, too bad, I know it will be hitting us before long, I just hope it doesn't make an early arrival

sandra I have quite a few pictures of those hydrants too. I'm saying that Duke makes me. my story and I'm sticking to it....lol

livintheblues well thanks, I wonder if that's why I had a bit of a stomach ache today....lol

b boys mom thanks, good think I had Duke along to point that out to me

fullet thank you, anything with water always attracts my attention

ManOverBoard.com said...

I love the pictures Duke and you take, they get better and better. I am afraid that the leaves in my yard are almost all down on the ground now and will stay there until spring (I always hope they somehow disappear over the winter).

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Halloweenie :-)

Ann said...

man over board, yes the tree in my front yard has only a couple stray leaves hanging on now. Somehow I think all the dead leaves multiply in my yard over the winter.

Country Mouse Studio said...

I like the perspective :O)

FishHawk said...

Yep, it's getting there. By the way, is it a stupid question to ask if Duke has indeed "marked" that hydrant as being his very own or is that picture just meant to help him decide?

Ann said...

country mouse studios, thank you

fishhawk I don't believe that Duke has left his official mark on that particular hydrant. maybe he's saving it for a special occasion

Kloggers/Polly said...

These are a lovely set of enchanting and colourful photos ... too nice to keep to yourself so thank you for sharing them. I hope that you consider framing at least one of them.

Ann said...

Kloggers, why thank you very much and it was a pleasure to share them with all of you. I often consider framing lots of my photos but very rarely get around to ever doing it

DSS said...

He would like that, wouldn't he? I'm behind, behind, behind...catching up now. Can't wait to see Duke's costume :)

Ann said...

DSS but of course :) It's ok if you're behind around here, we're patient, we can wait for you to catch up...lol
