Rainy, Fall Day in the Country

My daughter has taken up horseback riding which requires us to be at the stable by 10:15 Saturday morning every weekend. Normally, running kids to lessons – especially ones a drive away – is an onerous task almost every parent endures. This lesson, however, has turned into delightful activity for both of us. She rides. I photograph.

I’ve become quickly recognized around the farm for photographing just about everything. It is fascinating for me to find beauty in every day things and that’s normally what I search for. This past weekend, however, nature just handed me a cornucopia of colour and beauty that I could not resist. The rain brought out already brilliant colours and the grey skies served as a soft and mottled background.

I stopped multiple times along the highway to capture various shots of fields and forest. I also, to my great joy, found a path – a section of the Russell-Prescott Recreation Trail – only minutes from the horse farm. And what a stunning canopy and carpet of coloured leaves it displayed! Please enjoy the photos below!

Hi Isobel: Beautiful pictures, isn’t it so nice that we find such great pleasure in our surroundings, I am the same and always feel so blessed,that probably sounds really corny but it’s so true!! And Fall is such a beautiful time to take pictures! That’s great that Anna is enjoying the riding. Have a good day Sharon

    1. Hi Sharon. Thank you for dropping by. Yes we are fortunate to have such a beautiful country and the ability to get out and enjoy it. Fall is really spectacular this year! You enjoy your day too.


  2. What an incredibly beautiful collection of photographs. I love seeing Canada through your eyes.
    What’s even better is your writing. You’re not doing it often and when you finally manage to post a mini story you excel beyond words.
    Thank you for sharing.
