Peaking

Just a quick post for today.  I just wanted to share some of my photos of the fall foliage here in northern Virginia.  I took these a week or so ago just as the colors had reached their peak – breathtaking.  Alas, most of the leaves have blown away now and many of the trees are bare but what a feast for the eyes while it lasted.IMG_5880

I just love taking pictures at the ‘golden hour’.  Everything glows – even these  horses!

IMG_5976 Does anyone know what species of bird this is?  I’m thinking it is a kestrel but I really have no idea I’m just happy that I was able to get a photo of it.

  5. Wow - these photos are awe-inspiring Anji. The golden on the horses - the wisps of cloud and those brilliant fall colors. AND, you caught the hawk so well!

  9. Breathtaking indeed Anji! Fall is one of my favourite seasons (followed closely by spring). I just LOVE the brilliant colour palettes of nature during these times. These photos are heavenly!
