Red, Squirrel, and a Fence

We don't have many gorgeous fall colors around here. Most trees go from green to a dingy yellow color and then to brown. 



But occasionally there is a touch of red, which is my favorite fall color. I don't think this is a tree, more like some vine but I didn't jump over the fence to find out.


There's a squirrel in front of this fence. He was running away from me, but stopped to scratch an itch.



Sunset over the corn. Add a fence and it's a fine rural scene.

The fence does complete the scene. Funny squirrel.

Sarah said...

You see hardly any red squirrels here thanks to the grey ones taking over, great shot of him.

I absolutely love that last photo, the colours, the quality of the light, it's perfect. I'd be very tempted to blow that one up and frame it!

I love the corn field the best (okay, and the squirrel). Bill tied the corn stalks to my porch when he was home. I love to do that in the fall. I love autumn!

Ileana said...

Beautiful sky in last photo!

I'm thinking the vine may be Virginia Creeper as it turns bright red in the fall. I'm another one who likes the third photo. :))

Buttons said...

Lots of red in the trees this year, red then gone fleeting beauty so glad you captured some:) Hug B

We don't get much color this time of year either...but it's because of the temperate zone.

LOVE the 'wascally' squirrel!!!

I remember from my days in Illinois how quickly the leaves go from bright colors to brown, then gone. Those red vines always add a bit of dimension. I'd say the old gate has been there a looooong time!

Roan,
I really like the last shot. The natural textures and colors are a beautiful combination.

your description of fall, there, sounded like texas! i thought, 'wait a second! she doesn't live here any more!' :)

love your fence scenes and your 'not-so-scared' varmint.

Gosh, your pictures are so pretty!

He may be checking if his belly is full enough! Cute little squirrel. I have a lot of those yellow to brown and they all seem to have weeds that turn a beautiful shade of red too!

LV said...

It will be awhile before we see any colors here. I love them and enjoying seeing the leaves turn so bright and vivid red.

Debby Ray said...

That last image is especially stunning!!

Ruth Kelly said...

Love the last photo of the sunset.

Margaret Adamson said...

The last shot's colouring is really lovely.

W. Latane Barton said...

That last photo looks like a painting. Just beautiful.

Ida said...

Yes red is a wonderful color in fall and I wouldn't want to climb over that fence either with the barbed wire at the top. Cute little shot of the squirrel. I've got to say that last shot was so lovely. A perfect rural scene indeed.

Marie said...

Already mentioned my love of your awesome photos in my last comment. Did want to tell you that we actually saw a mountain lion scramble across the road on our trip toward home last July! It was moving slowly at first, and by the time we realized what it was in our approaching car, the car behind us in the other lane was whizzing by and honked at the poor thing and it dashed off. I was juggling the camera, trying to get it up to my face, but wasn't quick enough! :-( It was exciting to see him though!

ladyfi said...

What lovely colours!

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Oh, that sunset scene is so pretty!

I love the reds in autumn, too. I saw a huge red leafy vine covering a good portion of a tree yesterday as I was driving. I should have stopped to take a photo as today it is raining. :(

P.S. If you didn't see the reply on my blog - next time we are going to be through Greenup, I'll be sure to let you know. :D

beautiful Roan. I believe the red is a virginia creeper vine. love the image with the gate

Rose said...

I love the way the vines go almost to the tops of trees. But seems no matter how I try, I do not get a shot to do them justice.

That last shot is about as good as it gets!

Ginny said...

This last picture is my favorite, it is so beautiful. The sky, the old leaning fence and the corn.

barbara l. hale said...

Love that pop of red! Silly squirrel.

Glennis said...

The squirrel has a nice pose for you, the red vine is pretty too we get that kind of vine,as well. The rural scene is also lovely.

Mama Zen said...

Love that last shot!

Brian King said...

These are nice! Beautiful sky in the last photo!

Stephanie said...

My personal favorite image is your third shot. The colors and composition is super.

Jeanne said...

Very very nice fence shots. I like all three. Especially like seeing a red squirrel. Don't see those guys too often.

bj said...

I really like the corn field...great shot.

Gail Dixon said...

We won't be seeing much color until the end of October. Even then, it won't be much. Your sunset over the corn field is really beautiful!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I so love fences!!!!

We get a lot of dingy brown too. Only years with lots of rain do we get great oranges and yellows.
