Whatever Weds. More Fall Color

Copyright ©2020 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

I’ve been out a few times since my last post photographing fall color. The trees are peaking in some areas and slowly turning in others, but this year is gorgeous compared to last year.

Here’s a look at Slide Mountain from a hill above the Carson River. The Cottonwoods lining the river are lovely in their autumn colors.

A little further up the road I stopped and got out of my car to look behind me. I had to walk back a ways to get this shot, but I think it was worth it.

The river is very low right now.

I signed myself up for still life Season’s course that started on Monday. I’ve been playing with tablescapes since. If I get a composition I love I’ll share. 😀

I hope you’re all having a good week and staying healthy, and busy.

Whatever Weds. Daybreak on the Pond

We had 7 inches of snow last Thursday all over Carson Valley!  On Friday a friend and I got up and out really early to catch the sunrise and do some birding.  Before we even made it out of our gate we had to stop at the pond to catch the wonderful color and scene at the pond.

The storm blew through really fast, but oh what it left behind is so pretty!

I made this image a couple of week-ends back.

Fall along the Walker River

Fall color is quickly turning brown and more and more trees are bare.

I hope you’re all having an excellent week!

Whatever Weds. Carson Valley Fall Morning

This image is one I made last week. It was a gorgeous morning so, my next-door neighbor and I headed out to look for Fall colors earlier than planned. The morning did not disappoint.

This is my favorite image from the morning. I had it printed. It’s now hanging in my living room.  Do you print any of your images? If not, why not?

Whatever Wednesday- Storm Clouds over Job’s Peak

Job's Peak under Clouds

The view from my backyard all week has been cloudy with some rain.  In between He-Man and I have gone out hiking twice each time on a new trail.  If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen some images of the trail there.

Our hike on Monday was a 5.3-mile loop that wiped me out.  In Silicon Valley, I lived 257 ft above sea level. Here I’m 4,750 ft above sea level and the hike took us up to nearly 6,000 feet.  I was huffing and puffing and light-headed for most of it.  I am out of shape and not used to this elevation yet. A sinus infection and plugged ears didn’t help, but I hope this summer’s hikes get me ready for snow-shoeing this winter!

The weather may be unsettled here this week, but we are settled and on the road to discovering new trails and sights.  I hope you’re feeling settled in and finding some time to enjoy the outdoors this week.
