Ofcourse going to and from, we HAD to stop and shoot images of the barns along the way.....
Driving toward home we spotted this field with cows grazing. The light was almost perfect, illuminating the gold of the trees and the blue of the sky.
After taking another bazillion or so pics of cows, walking back to the car, double bonus, a wren, not sure exactly what kind since I really don't see too many of these in my yard. But he paused long enough for us to snap a few shots. The only way that he managed to get me to stop shooting his pic was for him to fly away. Cows don't move that fast, thus the bazillion pics. Just found out that this is a red-breasted nuthatch thanks to EG Camera Girl.
Since Catherine is leaving next week for a vacation and since the colors are really popping right now, we decided to get up early, early and be at the Arboretum at 7:00 AM this morning when the gates opened to grab a pic or two of the sunrise. Since I tend not to get up and out of the house this early in morn, I have very few shots of a sunrise. I really did like the way the grasses were illuminated by the early sun.
There was mist on the ground when we first arrived, but it didn't last too long....but I think this looks very Halloween(ie).
OK I need to stop now. I will post more from our Sunday outing and the Arboretum later. Linking to Madge at

Until next time.....
