My Sunday Snapshots

Here is a glimpse of my world during this beautiful Fall. 

Tree canopied Highway

Friday’s day trip along the tree canopied highways of Missouri

Missouri River

A stop at one of the many Missouri River accesses

Missouri River Bluff

The stark white nakedness of the river bluffs, topped with the bold colors of nature

Hillside of Fall colored trees

Pumpkin orange, russet reds, golden browns and rich greens of Fall

Vulture preying on road kill

  Road kill anyone?


Corn and bean fields in the shadows of rolling hills

Barn and hay

Farms dotting the way

Grape plants with farm silos in the distance

Grape vines framing silos of a distant farm


Bee on lavendar

Bees not only inhale the scent of lavender, like I do, but also the taste

Last rose of summer

A last valiant rose bloom

The woods at my house    Back home again to the view from my front porch

Have a blessedly wonderful Sunday everyone!

Great fall colors! As we have very little of that on the coast it's a real treat. Thanks for sharing.

The red trees are gorgeous. There aren't any quite that pretty in my area.

Loved these beautiful photos. You took some really great shots of your area. The one labeled "Road kill anyone?" was awesome. Timing is everything sometimes, isn't it?

Thanks for brightening a rather dismal day. :)

Awsome pics! Love the Road kill!lol What color we have had is gone quick because its so dry.. We really need rain!

Funny in My Mind said...

You take some phenomenal pictures!
I was noticing all the maple and their colors today in our cemetery. I really love the pic with the red and orange leaves!
I am actually loving fall so far this year- maybe the long, hot summer did me in.

Such wonderful pictures!! I'm very, very glad the memory chip thingy was in the camera!

I love that colorful shot of the red and orange trees on the hillside - the farm along the road and the happy snuffling doggies!

*Hugs* I hope you get some more great pictures - Alice Kay is right! timing is everything!

Mom I just love you pictures!!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE fall...the weather is usually perfect and the colors are just BEAUTIFUL!!! I always love driving out to your house because I get to see all the pretty fall colors on the way there plus all of them around your house. Hope you had a great weekend I know we did.

It's nice to be out this time of year. I'm glad you have some wonderful scenery to enjoy, and to encourage you to not shut yourself in for the Winter just yet. :)

Beautiful in your bit of country Deanna! Time to sit up at Summit Lake and do some sippin' before it is all gone!

The Farmer's Daughter said...

Your photos are just beautiful, Deanna! I especially love the one of the reds/oranges on the side of the hill. Mind sharing where this is?

I haven't been able to get out yet to see much color, just locally and it's not that special this year. The rains we're having tonight will probably make a lot of the leaves fall now.

Have a good week,

These are some of the prettiest photos I've ever seen in blogland! It really made me reflect on the beauty of creation and it's marvel.

Thank you for the kind comments. I hope you'll be back sometime.

Absolutely breathtaking pictures I am so jealous, we get color here of course since we have trees but it so flat here and its just so much more beautiful up in the hills and mountains, thanks for sharing I loved looking at the pictures HUGS
