My Drive to work thru the Fall Splendor

This year the Fall colors seem to be extra spectacular! I took these this morning and just had to post them. It was still slightly dark out so I did have to lighten them a bit but other than using Tash's Defog and lightening them in photoshop I didn't 'enhance' the colors. This is the view from our deck over towards our nursery. A little closer shot of the Poplars, I just can't get over how gorgeous they are this year!
Driving thru the orchards, I kid you not, I drive thru here saying to myself. 'Oh that would be another great photo', if I stopped as often as I see things I would like to photograph, I would NEVER GET TO WORK!! :) lol The grass looks like a lawn in this photo but that is just an illusion. Don't really know why, must be the angle. It is nice and green but it is mostly just mowed field grass.
And finally across the valley, off toward Talent and over one side of the orchard.
Thank you Lord for letting us live here! Granted sometimes when the wind is blowing and the rain is coming sideways I am not quite as thankful but right now I sure am!

Brooke, those are absolutely gorgeous. I am jealous of anyone who gets to live where they can experience fall in all its glory.

Totally love your pictures Brooke! The colors have been so awesome. Must have been all that wet weather we had last month. You have been busy lady! I looked at all the layouts you had posted and "you done good". :)

Debby said...

Yes you are very lucky! Those are just beautiful pictures. We don't have any color yet and when we do it will be hard to find something that wonderful to look at!

I just ran across your blog, having originally come from Longview WA (SW Wash) your photos are making me homesick. So beautiful it is, when as you say, the wind isn't blowing sideways and the heavens haven't started to cry on you, lol. I'd love to know more about how you said you lightened the photos (you mention Tash's defog?) Could you tell me what that is?
