Fall Colors (Central Missouri)
I see I might want to give a little background about Italy since I keep pulling those photos into the mix here for Wordless Wednesdays. It was an adventure I had just a year ago and I will give an overview here soon, just not on Wordless Wednesdays! I figure I'll be winding down topical photos as winter fully moves in here and then, so it's not just writing and photos about all my new pieces all the time, I'll need to insert a few good tales and interesting photos. So do stay tuned for these features!
Meanwhile, I promised to continue with the spectacular fall colors I captured last weekend. I feel like I'm playing with a box of crayons here. The Missouri hills and bluffs were quite brilliant, even if the weather was kind of gray. I saw that the "mixed woods" really could offer quite a colorful tapestry while some of the individual plants were truly amazing colors.
It's quite challenging to get photos of the landscape when one is driving. There's often no place to pull over safely when a beautiful vista is sighted, and even when I did pull over, walking wasn't always very safe. So I regret there were some amazing images that I missed and that would take better planning in the future to do justice too. But I did capture a lot of lovely color and have divided the collection into three days worth. Enjoy!
