Sunday Stills: Signs of Fall

This weeks Sunday Stills Challenge was a Signs of Fall.

I live in Minnesota.  The trees are at their peak color this weekend. 

Populus deltoides or Aspen

Aspens..or Populus deltoides..or Popples…or piss Popples because they are worthless for firewood. The wood just sits in a wood stove and water  boils out the end of the wood.  Pretty in the evening light!

Red Oak

Red Oak.. not sure which one.

Norways and Jacks wth Aspen and Oaks behund

Looking through the understory of Jack Pine and Norway Pine to the forest beyond filled with Popples and Oaks.

Sunday Stills: Faces

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was faces.  I took some photos of my great nieces back in August with the new camera.

Livey (2)

This is the beautiful Olivia or Livey, she started school this past week.

Brooke (2)

This is Brooke she looks so much like her mother!  She is all alone at home whilst her sisters are at school..until January when the new baby arrives.  Then I am afraid this one will have to give up her spot as the baby of the family.



This is Miss Aubrey, she is my great niece that lives next door.  I wanted to show off her wonderful smile.  Aubrey was born with a double cleft lip and palate.  She has endured many surgeries.  She is a trooper. She has endured more pain than a small child should.  She is always ready to smile for me and my camera as long as I show her the beautiful photo!

Have a good week everyone:)
