What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected. - Chief Seattle
This is the place to continue your journey with me to help you realize how every aspect of nature is an integral part of your life.
Another one of the many small lakes in our neighborhood showing a touch of color in early autumn. Definitely will return here arms the season progresses to see how the transformation is progressing.
A pretty sight from across the lake. It may be beautiful to look at, but it is not something you want to touch or bring home. The vines are beautiful, but certainly will cause you to itch -- trees wrapped in poison oak.
Late morning with the sun up, the air still is chilly and the mist rises off the lake. It's early fall, the leaves are beginning to change and the air is getting cooler.
Great time of year in the northern parts, but have to admit I am definitely not looking forward to what's coming next.
Shortly after sunrise with frost on the rooftops signals the real start of fall, color change and windy days.
When the sun shines, the air is crisp but not cold, the leaves are rapidly showing off their colors before the trees take a rest, it's time to explore with the camera and take in the beauty of the surroundings.
now is the time to see what nature has to offer.
