I wonder which you like best and why?
The top one is the original. It was taken around 8:00 a.m. on October 22.

I featured photos from a shop in Nashville, Indiana earlier....this was taken at the same shop on the same day. I know it is early, but if I don't post it now, I am afraid I will forget it and I think it is wonderful!

We came around the curve down in this low place in the road--a place you just know is flooded when it rains very much at all--and there was this blue heron. And he did not seem to be near as scared as most are. I was probably only 15-20 feet from it...I didn't attempt to get out of the car though.

It seems any time I am out there, even if the sky doesn't have a single cloud in it when I first go, if I stay till sunset it will be spectacular. I try to restrain myself and not take more, but I can never completely stop.

Look at the original below...doesn't it seem like it is sepia toned already.
As I was looking at this I got the bright idea to just sepia tone the sky, and leave the rest as it was taken.

I so often post barns for Ruby Tuesday, that I was sitting thinking I had to do a change of pace. I looked down and seen this pen laying beside my computer. Pens and paper are two of my favorite things...I have a real hard time passing by school supplies without buying something.

October's Bright Blue Weather
O SUNS and skies and clouds of June,
And flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour
October's bright blue weather;
When loud the bumble-bee makes haste,
Belated, thriftless vagrant,
And Golden-Rod is dying fast,
And lanes with grapes are fragrant;
When Gentians roll their fringes tight
To save them for the morning,
And chestnuts fall from satin burrs
Without a sound of warning;
When on the ground red apples lie
In piles like jewels shining,
And redder still on old stone walls
Are leaves of woodbine twining;
When all the lovely wayside things
Their white-winged seeds are sowing,
And in the fields, still green and fair,
Late aftermaths are growing;
When springs run low, and on the brooks,
In idle golden freighting,
Bright leaves sink noiseless in the hush
Of woods, for winter waiting;
When comrades seek sweet country haunts,
By twos and twos together,
And count like misers, hour by hour,
October's bright blue weather.
O suns and skies and flowers of June,
Count all your boasts together,
Love loveth best of all the year
October's bright blue weather.

The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing
Professor Wind the band."

I am giving both the view in sepia as well as the original. I probably like the sepia view best. But the original sure isn't bad.
This one is so well maintained...it looks as if will be standing when I am long gone.
