I have spent some time outside this past week enjoying the good weather. There was some rain, but all in all it was a beautiful fall week.
My daughter, husband and I went to Glen Helen Nature Preserve on Sunday. The weather was beautiful and there were still some fall colors to look at. When my pictures didn’t have much color, I used Kim Klassen’s Lightroom preset autumncopper which added more fall color.
We have been outside working in the yard too, raking leaves and pruning trees. While I was raking, I noticed there were two purple coneflowers, a little worse for wear, but still there. I normally don’t take pictures of flowers past their prime, but I thought these deserved a photo.
We are going to get our first taste of winter tonight with freezing temperatures and a little wet snow, just in time for Trick or Treat tonight in our city. In our part of Ohio they stagger the Trick or Treat nights so each suburb has kids Trick or Treating on a different night. Since the weather will be bad tonight, we went to a neighboring city to Trick or Treat last night. So my daughter already has her candy and if it is nice, she gets to Trick or Treat twice. This is the first year we have done this, I felt like we were cheating somehow, but we did have fun. My daughter dressed up as a window washer and put blue Gatorade in a Windex bottle to squirt in her mouth. Oh to be a kid again...
Today I am joining Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds. My images were textured with Kim Klassen's textures painterly and thursday2014. This week I found beauty in nature, which really isn’t hard to do.
If you celebrate Halloween have safe and fun night!
Thank you for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend!!
