Skywatch Friday Thoughts and More

This photo was taken last October.  This year the colors were not nearly as bright nor the colors nearly as nice.  We had a long, hot, dry, July, August, and September.  October brought some rain, but it was too little, too late.  The result being that the primary color this autumn was brown.  A dull, dingy, dead brown.  We lost a lot of trees in the woods around the house.  This tree is just a reminder of how beautiful autumn can be.  It is typically my favorite time of the year.  I love the color changes, the weather patterns stabilizes, and the holiday season is just around the corner.
My inspirational song this week comes from the band "Third Day".  The song "God of Wonders."  Have a wonderful week-end.


  1. wonderful

  2. It's pity to hear what happened to trees in the woods but I like the photography you posted!!!
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. I live in central California and it's usually very hot starting in May right through September. Not this year. It was cold much of the summer. We don't get much autumn here either. Have to head for the mountains for that. I do love the beauty of autumn.

    Love the gospel song very much.

    Have a terrific day and weekend. Big hug. :)

  4. What a perfect moment you captured. I love that the tree is beautifully changing and the trees in the background are not yet changing.

  5. Great pic, even if it is from last year. This year the leaves are just fading, waiting for a big wind to drop.

    That song is one of my most favorite songs ever.

  6. Lovely photo! We have not had good color for a couple of years now.
    And excellent music choice, we love Third Day at our house.

  7. I hate when the colors are muted...sigh

    That is one colorful picture
