Autumn Colors - Backyard View




Sunday September 27, 2015, Jake was begging for his first ball game of the day. I explained it was 6:45 and that we had a half hour before it would be light enough to see the ball. He insisted and I listened. I said "come on, mommy will show you it is to dark?  

OH WOW! Mommy screamed while dashing for the camera.....Our Sunrise from our backyard viewed through the neighbors palm tree.





In the bottom right of above photo, is the roof line of our neighbors house. Once again I had to shoot UP and over to get these photos. We have no autumn leaves, but from now through December we have glorious sunrise/sunsets.

Wow! The dog KNOWS! Glorious seems the best word to describe that sunrise! You saw the sunrise on Sunday....we saw the moon! Best of both worlds!

Agree, absolutely glorious! Thank you for listening to your precious pup so that we can all see that sunrise.

LOL that Jake knows his Mummy. My whole menagerie was in the garden at 3.20am to see the Lunar eclipse! They were delighted (at being outside so early, not watching the moon) Now, my question to Jakey is: Did Mummy play ball once she'd photographed the sunrise? Just checking!

I would have rushed for the camera as well. Those are really great sky images!

Good thinking on Jake's part getting you out there to see that sunset. Love the look of the palm tree silhouette against that pretty morning sky

Beautiful! I love a Fall sky but we usually see the colors in the evening when the sun is setting. East Coast vs West Coast I guess.....

Casey said...

I bet you won't argue with Jake again! Did he get extra time with his ball?

What Karen Sees said...

Very beautiful. So different from what I'm seeing in my 'neck of the woods.'

Oh Wow thank the Lord for neighbors. Great beautiful takes.

Your neighborhood and yours. I swear sometimes your in the Jungle.

You have such interesting pictures.

Absolutely beautiful.

That is a beautiful sunset. I'd talk palm trees over colored leaves any day. I guess they scream "vacation" to me. Maybe I wouldn't appreciate them so much if they were in my backyard instead of an oak.
