Over Labor Day weekend, I was in Wisconsin, where I did a lot of back road riding with the camera.
I took tons of photos, a few of which I’ll post over the coming weeks. Let’s start with one hell of a view. I remember exactly where I was when I took this one. It will be interesting to duplicate the shot in a month or so to see what fall does with the color, but already we can see a hint of red in the plants that have overgrown the fence.
I’m including the following photo because I love this house! I was visiting the dentist in town and had to stop and take pictures. Whoever owns it is taking great care of it.
I was on one of my favorite back roads, which leads to lots of other nifty back roads, when I spotted this barn. It’s a small holding barn, unlike the gigantic red buildings you usually see in Wisconsin. It’s more suitable for goats and chickens than larger livestock. The richness of the colors made me do a quick U-turn and line up a shot before I lost more of the light.
While I love to observe the changing seasons through the camera, the coming of fall makes me sad because it is inevitably followed by winter, and that is simply not my season. As you can tell from my pictures, I love lush, beautiful color. Winter has none. It is black and white and that’s about it. I do take winter photos but I don’t enjoy my toes freezing and taking fingers out of gloves long enough to get the shot is often a icy lesson in fortitude.
But there are several weeks to go before snow flies, so I am told. Let’s see how many pictures I can take before then. 🙂
