Farewell to Fall

 
Another season is coming to a close and soon Winter will arive with the beauty of snow and Christmas magic.  There is a part of the Black River that feeds into a lake that I pass each day and have always wanted to take a photo of but it presented a challenge because it is on Route 3 which is the main road through the Village and Town.  Last week when I was driving by on my way to work, the sun was shimmering on the water and the Canadian Geese were  enjoying the water as they always do this time of year.  I decided it was "now or never" so I pulled off the road and with camera in hand walked over the bridge to take the photos I’ve been wanting to take. 
 
Of course, by the time I got to where I needed to be, the sun had somewhat hidden behind some clouds so the shimmer on the water that you see just does not do it justice.  It is spectacular when you see it in full sunlight but it is still a peaceful scene no matter what the weather.  I hope you enjoy them. 
 
I will post the remaining shots in my "Amazing Autumn" album.  I hope all is well with you and yours!
 
 
 
 
 
 
The last two photos are of the Black River Damn and where the water flows under the bridge to the other side to the start of the Black River.  The sun was shining on the water so brightly that the light almost looks like foam, but I couldn’t resist stopping to take the photos.  Hope you enjoyed the scenery!

    I really like these shots, home girl. I love this time of year, especially after the first snow which, judging by the way our temperatures have been dropping should be about ……Tuesday. Sure ain\’t like it is back home, is it?

    The weather is warming up very quickly here. We are lucky we live in a seadside resort, we are cooled by sea breezes each afternoon her in Queensland. The heat can get too much for some people in State. I enjoyed looking at your beautiful photo\’s~Love Melanie xxxx~

    Hello Rhonda. Hope things are going as well as can be. Odd (for me) to read about the weather and anticipation of snow. YVR doesn\’t get much snow and if we do, it\’s a muddle. Spaces I am visiting have this anticipation of storms so like how these photos show the days before arrival. The bright sun and the water still flowing. Not ice. Hope it is a most lovely weekend for you/family.
