Fall Color

IMG_6198.JPG
Saturday while on my walk I made a mental note to come out to this field and shoot between these beautiful rows of Acer rubrum 'Franksred' aka Red Sunset Red Maple. I badgered my husband to no avail yesterday. But today he gave in and came out with me.

And he brought the lovely Clarice with him as well. And since I'm an equal opportunity blogger and I do not discriminate between long legged (JRTCA) and short legged (Irish) Jack Russell Terriers. I'm posting her as well.

No post of my husband would be complete without a demonstration of his incredible grumpiness! The contrast between his sweet tempered girl and himself is amazing don't cha think?

He's not grumpy...he's just deep in thought about how lovely you look taking his picture.

Tami said...

Thanks Rob....that got a smile out of him!

Amy Hammond said...

it's like he wants to smile, but in the back of his mind he knows his picture is going on the world wide web for all to see ;)

That last photo is priceless - made me laugh! Looks more like a "wary" look on your hubbies face! And I love that pooches smile!

The fall colours are amazing. We don't get those kinds of colours over here as most of our trees are evergreens. But, it is spring after all and we are enjoying the colours of the flowers and summer coming on.
As for hubby, I feel his pain. I much rather prefer to be behind the camera than in front.

Great photos, Clarice is so happy! Love those Maples ! Your hubby is a handsome kind of grumpy..I get that look too..I think it might have something to do with a camera:)

Annette said...

Great photos - the trees are just amazing. Instead of grumpy, I prefer stoic, rugged. He is a happy kind of stoic.

Tami said...

Amy....I would never post a bad picture of him....he knows that. BUT grumpy pictures are definitely blog fodder!

Tami said...

Far Side....my husband says I ambush him with the camera!

Tami said...

Annette....oooooo yes I like stoic and rugged too!

Tami said...

Willow Witch....your comment made me laugh and laugh. I'm going to start referring to them as that! I can't wait for hubby to read these tonight. He will get a good laugh!

The last photo says "take the damn picture..."

At least the dog is smiling!

Just found your blog thru New England Girl. Love your photographs! I wish I could take pix like you. My husband is from western PA (Indiana, PA). We live in Virginia. Love the outdoors, too! Go Steelers!

Tami said...

Hi Jacey.....Virgina is a beautiful state too! I'm more of a hockey gal....Go PENS! Either way...hockey or football Pittsburgh is a great city to live in!

Linda said...

So funny - but isn't there a hint of a smile in the first photo?

Tami said...

Linda....that would be a hint of a grimace I think!
