I love the changing seasons bringing new sights, smells and sounds every day!
It makes for our regular walks up the hill much more interesting for you never know what vistas may appear or what surprise events may happen!
For those of you who may not know I live in the Boreal Forest of Saskatchewan, Canada surrounded by nature's beauty and abundance! I did my best to capture that beauty with the changing of the seasons and the vibrant fall colors but if you ever get a chance to come up to the Boreal forests for the fall season it really is one of the best times of the year! The bugs are gone, the birds are flocking up and beauty abounds! I wish there was some way of sharing the smells of autumn approaching but alas, not possible for me yet!
This season we seemed to get our fall weather early with below average cool temperatures and lots of wet weather ( as a photographer I can't complain about the grey days for it often created very good lighting for taking photos!) Then we had a sharp change of weather come in with the full moon to warmer sunny weather which really bought out the aromas of the damp, decaying foliage, a real earthy smell!

And my Wednesday Walks wouldn't be the same without a picture of Bruno who loves our walks to the top of the hill so much!

On the wetter days we couldn't go up the road to the hill but took the road to the pond instead where we were dazzled by the rich colors along the roadside.

I couldn't seem to get enough of the brilliant red of the fireweed...

Another plant adorned in their brilliant red colors were the wild roses...

Among the red rose and fireweed foliage was the golden foliage of the dog-bane making a delightful display among the young spruce growing beside the road.

We'll end our walk with a visit to the neighbor's horse pasture which also carried a red and orange coloration...

Another spectacle that was bought about by the continuing cool and wet weather was flocks and flocks of geese flying south, aware of the soon approaching colder seasonal weather!

I hope you enjoyed a little showing of our colorful fall days. It's that brilliant display of color that helps us forget that the warm summer days are over and we're heading to the colder winter months!
Pictures and video were taken with my Canon Powershot A495 ( I didn't want to take my new Canon camera out in the damp weather)
