Our world, my world


Happy Monday! Wishing everyone a great day and new week ahead.

Hubby and I often take walks on our local fire roads in our neighborhood, we can also take side trails to the lake. The lake is a reservoir for Baltimore City's drinking water. These are some images from late Oct-Nov 2017.  The state's DNR allows bow-hunting in this watershed area, trying to control the deer population. We have to pick and choose when we take our walks on the fire roads from Sept thru January and hunting season.




We often see Double-crested Cormorants at our lake, sometimes groups of them. On this day we just saw one perched on a tree branch sticking out of the water.








The Waxing Crescent moon on Oct 24th , I took this photo from my deck.




As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

My list of memes for today, I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the host below.

Oh my Eileen, you get such wonderful shots of the moon. You must have a super camera. Always a pleasure to visit your blog. I wish you a beautiful new week.

So happy I can share this world with you.

Phil Slade said...

Take care along those fire roads Eileen. Seems strange from over over here that you have bow hunting along the same roads that people walk. Enjoy your week ahead.

Karen said...

That is a lovely place to walk by the lake. Your moon shot is glorious!

Our skies are full of birds right now, flocks migrating to the south. I recognize the cranes and the storks but not the smaller birds. And I love that photo of the moon! You must have a fantastic camera.

Those trees are absolutely amazing and the reservoir is so beautiful and I would love to walk there myself

The fall colors in your area are wonderful!

Hello,

I really love your moon photos. I guess you must have a wonderful camera. They are very beautiful.

Happy Monday, and have a nice new week!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Such a gorgeous place to walk, Eileen! Love those colorful reflections in the water! Make sure you wear your red plaid flannels during hunting season :) x Karen

Mildred said...

A pretty place by the lake to walk and I am stunned by the beautiful moon shots.

RedPat said...

Make sure you wear bright clothes during the hunting season!

Debbie said...

oooooh eileen, that first picture is just stunning!!

The Yum List said...

That first photo is absolutely stunning.

happyone said...

What beautiful pictures and that moon has me speechless!!! WOW.

Rose said...

I hope you have had a great day. I love these pics...and the moon shot is awesome.

If I were you and I could I would get some hunter orange to wear if I was anywhere near during hunting season. Most hunters try to be safe, but my husband would not even hunt on opening day of gun season. Here there is turkey hunting during mushroom hunting season and there are places I will not go then even though they would be good for mushrooms.

Lois said...

A beautiful place to walk. The moon is gorgeous!

indah nuria Savitri said...

Such an incredible series of photos, Eileen. Fall has been perfectly beautiful as well here in NYC. Enjoy it while you can..

The Furry Gnome said...

ann said...

The fall colors are so gorgeous, especially when reflected on the water. You take absolutely beautiful walks.

rupam sarma said...

Amazing place, Awesome pics.
Greetings.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You take the best moon shots, Eileen! Do you wear an orange fluorescent vest when you walk during hunting season? Many people wear them here when they go into the woods so they are not mistaken for a deer.

Lady Fi said...

What gorgeous autumnal colours!

Photo Cache said...

Oh glorious nature as captured magnificently.

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful Autumn color!

Lynne said...

Wonderful pictures you take on that Fire Trail!
And the photo from the deck of the moon is perfect . . .
I noticed the Banana Moon as I looked up the other night too!

Jeanie said...

Your photos are magnificent, Eileen. What beautiful territory you live in. And that sky is a stunner!

Christine said...

Hello Eileen!
Just a gorgeous day for a walk! The fall colours were beautifully reflected in the lake!
Hope you have a great week!

Gayle said...

I agree with Pat in Colorado. I have the same camera and my moon shots don't come close to yours. (even with your kind instructions) I'll just have to keep trying. Happy Day.

Birgitta said...

Wow! Beautiful and great photos!

NatureFootstep said...

Felicia said...

beautiful fall scenes. a pretty place to walk.

Al said...

Very nice, it looks like a wonderful place to walk.

Angie said...

Eileen - I like the one with the sun shining through the trees ... so symbolic of the season coming to a close. And the moon shot - super!

Ruth Rieckehoff said...

Well, that is a beautiful reservoir. Glad you can enjoy it!

Fun60 said...

The colours make me sigh with pleasure.

italiafinlandia said...

Pleasant Autumn shades...
Have a good day!

Mia said...

What a beautiful photo of the moon, Eileen! It is absolutely amazing! Kisses, my friend.

David Gascoigne said...

I can well imagine that you would need to be careful when a bunch of hunters are walking around with bows. Just returned from Cuba last night, so starting to catch up. The Internet connection there was pretty poor.

John's Island said...

Hi Eileen, As always, I so enjoy your photography. The moon shot is great! And that first photo, with the reflection ... well, you should get it printed up as a postcard. Just a great shot! Thanks for sharing and have a happy week. I always enjoy your blog. John

Kay L. Davies said...

What wonderful, wonderful colours in your first photo! And your moon shot! Fantastic. I wish I had a proper camera these days, instead of just a cell phone, when I see photographs as magnificent as yours.
