    Did not have the chance to get out much during October, and with the crappy weather we on the days I did get out, the cam stayed in the bag a lot. :grumpy:
    Anyways...a some random throwups from October of my various wanderings .

    An old stump. Love walking this place, and if ya get the right day, it is like snowing leaves when they fall.

    A heron I stumbled upon down at the lake. Must have had a lunch date. ​

    Window Pain. An old window from the Guild Inn. Old windows fascinate me. I wonder how many faces have peered out them. ​

    Some fall colours and a burned out schoolhouse​

    A view from the top of the Scarborough Bluffs. I ventured out on this ledge and wanted to create a vertigo effect. Yeah...I know the horizon is crooked. :lol::lol:

    Ya think they are rushing things. The pumpkins have not even faded, but the christmas decorations are already lit. ​

    Gone for the winter. An outdoor cafe vacant for another long season​

    What a wonderful series!!! I love how in the first one the leaves in the foreground are so detailed (you can see every separate leaf, instead of just a mass of colour). Nice crop on the heron....were you really close to it? The Guild, Bluffs and Distillery District shots are all lovely as well. Good to see you got out and got some pics!

    Thank you so much Chris and Anty
    Anty...I was that close. This was probably the friendiest heron I have encountered. It was at the bluffs near the regeneration area. At one point I was able to shoot with my 18-55. :D

    He had enough of me at this point, and went on his date.

    What a beautiful series. I am enjoying each and every single photo of it.
    The fifth gives me a bit of a krick in the neck ... has anyone ever mentioned to you that the horizon is "slightly off to the right"? ;) :greenpbl: :biggrin:
    Nice to get an overview over the bluffs for once. I've seen you post various detail photos but this is different and new (to me).

    How I wish the outcome of my photography were as pleasing when actually I don't feel the time/light/weather/circumstances are really that right for photography. If I try, all the same, the outcome sure shows that I felt discouraged in the moment of taking the photo already.

    Cool series, especially like the Haron. I have to agree with LaFoto about the croocked horizon, it makes me a little dizzy.

    Hahaha, I actually had to hold onto my chair when I looked at the shot from the bluff.. I am sooo afraid of heights (and yet I go into and onto high places for the thrill.. go figure) But I had to take in a quick deep breath because I could see myself there in that photo! WOW
    The school house, beautiful. I am continuously amazed at how something so rundown or burned down can make such a beautiful photo. You have totally magnified this concept! This whole series is beautiful! I love it Chiller!
