More Fall Colors

Last night we stook a short walk in the neighborhood just as the sun was setting. 
I could not believe the beautiful colors!  This picture is from the road looking at the back of houses on a small lake.  The tree dressed in vivid colors is a Bradford Pear Tree.  A man was walking his dog and said he paints so he looks for good pictures, also.  I told him that I paint, too.  I hope to be doing more soon, time just always runs out on my good intentions-ha!
This one is of another very small lake with a little cement bench near the road.  The sun was just hitting the tops of the trees as it set and made a nice reflection in the water.

This is the lake behind our house taken from the road around the corner.  The sun was already sinking below the trees on the far end.

Now, this is the one I would want to paint and would probably leave out the houses and improvise a cabin in the background.  I just love the reflections!
 And let us not forget the beautiful sky when the sun was setting!  Pink puffy clouds and cerulean blue sky...
 Good night sweet Autumn day,
  Good night Sweet Sun, Now rest you may.
Blue Moon will soon be out to show,
 It's brilliant light will shine on earth below.
A guiding light all through the night,
 Till again we see God's Morning Light!

   The circle near the top of the silhouetted tree is a cluster of Mistletoe that grows wild all over in our area of South Carolina and is green all year round. 
   Are you all now ready for Turkey Day?
    My heart to yours...

What beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing your neighborhood with us. I do enjoy the fall, if it would only cool down already! It's in the 80s and I actually have been running the A/C today!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

It's good to know your weather is better than ours. It is getting colder here with a hint of snow promised.
The photo's as usual are wonderful.

The colors are really stunning. You DO have an eye for what would make a gorgeous painting.
