We were driving home and I could see it was going to be a beautiful sunset. By the time we got home and I could get the camera the peak colours were over but still got a decent shot.

Witches’ Night Out and Sunset

Tonight was Witches’ Night Out in Lebanon Illinois. I’ve been going since 2010 and it always a lot of fun. Not as many witches’ this year unfortunately. Not sure why but the weather was perfect. I wish they held it on a Saturday night instead of Sunday.

On the way home there was a beautiful sunset as I was going down the back roads towards home. I was able to stop and get a shot of the settings sun through this tree.

Mouse Door

Went for a photo walk in St. Charles Missouri yesterday with a bunch of friends. The theme was we had to upload our photos as black and white shots. Had a lot of fun and the weather was perfect. This mouse door I spotted is one of those little things that people do that I love. While this shot is black and white I liked it better in colour. Might have to make one of these to put around my house.

Autumn and the fallen

I love fall. Today my wife and I went driving up the Great River Road from Alton to Pere Marquette State Park. We stopped for a little walk in the town of Elsah. My wife loves the place and I love taking photos there. The leaves are near peak colour and are really coming off the tree.
