Last bit of color....

There is hardly anything colorful left from fall....
everything else is so gray or brown.

Old.....for old barns....

I am not sure this is a barn, but I am posting it for the Old Barn meme.
It is so big, and the only thing near is a farm so i don't know what else it could be. If you want to see more barns or want to join the meme, pop on over the Tricia's Bluff Area Daily blog to join.

Indiana farm....

This is the farm....
and this is the house at the farm...

And if you will check yesterday's post, of the eagles...I was standing right in front of this house when I took the picture of the eagles in the field! Can you imagine living in a place where you can look out your window and see eagles? I cannot.

The mamas and the papas...and youngsters

Though this is not a very good picture, I have to show it to prove to you there were 4 eagles!!! Click it to make it bigger...you can easily see the two adults with their white heads...and the youngster that is farthest away is close to the adult and fairly easily seen. The youngster that is closer to us in the photo, is over my copyright.
All four flew up and headed towards the river however this one circled back to fly over the farmland surrounding us. It is the same eagle in both pictures.
I was so hoping to see an eagle today, but usually the days I start out hoping to see one, I don't. And I did not in my wildest dreams think I would see more than one. In my younger years, I never would have expected to see an eagle any place other than the zoo!

Needless to say, seeing these made our day.

Old Barn

At last I am home and able to participate in the Old Barn Meme started by Tricia at Bluff Area Daily....if you want to join or just see the links to more beautiful old barns, just click HERE!!!!
The one above was taken over across the state line in Illinois.

I love old barns and sure look forward to having a little bit of time to visit the links...thanks Tricia for starting this!

From Illinois country

At rest

I wonder if the canoe will be used any more this summer or is it waiting to be put away for the winter. This creek looked so lonely but beautiful to me. This photo does not do it justice, but it serves as a reminder of a beautiful scene.

In the wind....

This is a drive-by shot I took today on our way to Arthur, Illinois. There was a fairly steady wind...and I loved the way the the tree's limbs swayed. For once, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the photo turned out...taken from a vehicle going 60mph. If I get brave, one of these days I might show some of the rejects in the drive-by shots! But for now, I will stick with the better photos.

A low profile barn...not like the bigger barns I normally love. I wonder if this is more of a shop to work on farm equipment, rather than a regular barn.

To the far blue mountains....

This was taken either in northwestern Georgia or northeastern Alabama....it is not the greatest picture but I love the layered look of the mountains.
