White Owl Creek in the Fall

It's not necessary to travel too far

for fall scenes

when the little creek bed a few steps from my house

holds treasures like these.

The only signs of a crowd


White Owl Creek

are the footsteps of some

white tail deer

that I scare out of their


Or the laughter of my kids and nieces

floating on the breeze

playing in the yard

Or our beagle


baying with a sound like he's caught in a trap

which is really his extreme delight

in doing what he was made to do:

hunt rabbits.

  1. Such beautiful pictures. And - do you have White Owls there? This summer was the first time that I've heard a Great Horned Owl close to my home and it's still there.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! I've always loved taking pictures in the fall, probably my favorite time of year. =)

  3. Beautiful photos! I miss the fall. We're having 90 degree temps. and I just want to wear my jeans and a jacket.
