Saturday Snapshot

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme, post a photo that you (or a friend of family member) have taken. Then leave a direct link to your post on West Metro Mommy. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online
This was such a glorious  morning that I wanted to share it with you. I was torn between photos of the beautiful colored leaves and the show-stopping blue sky with contrails across the sky. 
Here's a mix of both.

Some of the red leaves are truly beautiful. The yellow ones are too but they are harder to capture on my iPhone camera.

Some round bushes have gone an amazing red. I don't know if they do this every year and I just never noticed before, or if this is an especially good year for these bushes.

Also this week I am announcing the winner of a giveaway for Mike Dixon's book Wolf Wood. Thanks to everyone who entered. I entered the names of everyone to a Random Name Selector on my phone then pushed the button and Valentina came up as the winner. So Mike will be sending her a copy of his book.

Isn't it wonderful in the fall when the leaves are turning?

Beautiful fall colors!

I found the yellow leaves more tricky to photograph. They need decent lighting I think, otherwise they look rather dull. But those reds really sing out at you! How thrilling! It must be wonderful to have a book in your hand after all the hard work. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/Zlqhui

Lovely colours, it's always nice to see the yellows and reds.

I miss Ohio's changing colors! I only found one tree where I now live that was changing.
