Five Shots: Last Greens of Summer

Cool temperatures and blue skies had us in the car heading north today to see if the Aspen leaves had turned. The scenic drive from Sedona up to Flagstaff is one of the prettiest scenic drives around. At Flagstaff, we hiked around Hart Prairie where a frost burnt the ferns and the Aspens were still green. Then we drove over to Garland Prairie to see if the fields of flowers were blooming, but we were too late, the flower stalks were black and wilted. Even though our timing was off, to catch leaves and flowers in their glory, Jim, Bear, and I enjoyed the pleasant weather. Which shot do you like best?

  1. I love those flawless blue skies, but agree with FR that the cow photo is a great shot.
    The leaves are falling from the oak trees in the garden. It won’t be long before the first frosts here now.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I hope you will take some fall shots. I never tire of seeing the colors of fall. I know this sounds strange, but because the skies are blue most of the year, seeing clouds are a treat. Even grey bumpy ones from England are a treat for my eyes. πŸ™‚

  2. Beautiful views and lovely weather by the look of it as well, what a stunning place to visit! I think the Rocks at Oak Creek picture is my favourite, its a great vista, but all the pictures are really nice πŸ™‚
