That's My World Tuesday: Looking up and looking down as I go a wandering


At the risk of being repetitiouis, I thought I'd take you along on another walk with me this week.


This time I thought I would post shots of what I saw when I looked up and then when I looked down, all along my walk.


It is interesting to me how different the view is depending on which way I look.


I think the contrast between up and down can be the greatest, although the difference between left and right or front and back can be pretty intense depending on the sun.


Contrasting looking into and away from the sun could be a bit too intense for me.


The photographs in this post are from a walk a few days ago around Shelley Lake, the same lake I showed photos from for my prior That's My World post. This time of year there are daily changes in the sky and ground.


There are daily changes all times of the year but they are very noticeable at the moment.


In some ways the changes are more noticeable looking up at the moment, but then again there are a lot of changes going on at ground level.


These photographs didn't show the changes that are so noticeable at my house like piles of leaves, but even on the walk around the lake there were some changes at ground level. The fields of dead grasses and flowers were more sideways looks so they aren't included here.


Please visit the home of That's my world Tuesday for participants from around the world.

We had similar thoughts I see. Except I wasn't wandering, so thoughts weren't as expansive as yours.

Lovely walk you had. My favourites are the last but one and the one before that - with the reflection of the sky and that lovely autumn colour in the trees.

Oh, I love going along with you on your walks, Carver! And I love the way you look up! Sometimes it's the best way to see the beauty! I really love all your shots -- the mallard's head is soooo shiny green! And the reflections in the water are delightful!!

Have a great week!

I very much enjoy going on walks! We went walking around our neighborhoood this last weekend and did a great deal of looking up and down. Thanks!

Barb said...

This is a great idea - seeing the views both up and down - I really like what your camera caught. Do you see a face in that branch on the ground or is it just me? Taking a walk with you was fun!

And it doesn't be much more beautiful than that...I have said it quite often but just don't get tired of expressing how much I love Fall. :)

Arija said...

Love all the branches against the sky, especially the blazing colorful ones. Really lovely.

Hazel said...

Thanks for the walk. I surely enjoyed it. I love to wander especially in the midst of nature. That's a pretty reflection of the trees on the water.
