Quiet enough for loons which we heard on the other shoreline. The water seriously looked like glass and you felt as if you were paddling through clouds. Happy Sky Watch Friday!
The colors this autumn are quite brilliant partly due to the fact that we haven’t had a hard frost yet.
The dogwoods are just starting to turn. I didn’t increase the saturation in this photo at all; it’s just the way it looked.
We did a paddle today along the Clark Fork near Trout Creek. This part of the river is like a lake with
very little current. Matt and I think this is the latest we’ve kayaked in October. It was nearly sixty. The photo below I took with my phone.
We saw Belted Kingfishers, heard loons, and a Bald Eagle flew over us on the river. I’d say it was a special paddle.
I have some others I took with the Canon which I hope to share in a couple of days.
One of our favorite things about Autumn is the chance to go out with miniature scissors and harvest the grapes off the vines.
It was a perfect day to do so; the sun was shining!
We haven’t had a killing frost yet but the green concord grapes were ready. We cut about twelve pounds off the one vine.
Sunlight through the grape vines… there must be a special phrase for this color in Italian?
The purple Pinot grapes are not ready, but they seldom are. If we are lucky some of them will ripen. We don’t make wine but these
are not bad to eat when ready.
