As I look back on the month of October, perhaps my favourite month of the year, I once again marvel at the beauty that autumn creates here in Canada. The spectacular colours of the trees and crispness of the air make for beautiful images and wonderful hiking. The colours are quickly coming to an end as many of the leaves have now fallen from the trees. Have a wonderful weekend all!
These weeds were blowing like crazy in my backyard late this afternoon. With a little effort and help from Photoshop I turned an image that I was not too happy with into something I was much happier with.
I drove out to Belleville, On today and back. On the way back I took a short detour of off the highway and drove along a few country roads. On one of them I found this lonely little shack not too far from the road. Not sure what the story is here. Perhaps it was a shelter for kids waiting for the school bus.
Yesterday we hosted our annual Halloween party and had lots of fun! For the first time ever I had a professional makeup artist come in to do our makeup. She did a fantastic job of my rendition of Heath Ledgers “The Joker” from the Batman movie. I seldom ever take “selfies” but I could not resist!
I flew into Moncton, New Brunswick this afternoon for a quick trip. It was pouring rain and has not really stopped. During one very brief break in the downpour I did happen to find this very colorful leaf laying about.
This afternoon I drove up to Torrance Barrens in the Muskoka region of central Ontario. Torrance Barrens is known as a Dark Sky Preserve. It has a unique combination of little or no light pollution and rock types that seems to make the sky darker. In addition tonight was a moonless night and perfectly clear.
