The day before our first hard freeze, I went out and shot a few shots around my yard. I am so very thankful to live in a mostly rural area; The beauty of nature brings me peace.

      Thank you so much, yes it is a matter of perspective. On any give day, I would say my yard is “uninteresting” But when you take apart the whole, it is amazing what you discover!
