driving home from nature day 2008










nature day is something my friend, mary, started many years ago. she loves nature more than anyone i know. because she loves it so much, she started a get-together every fall where anyone who wanted to join her would go to the spot of her choosing--usually a forest preserve--and walk around to enjoy and take in the beauty of God's earth.

i have gone several times, but this year was the first time in several years. it has grown to a crowd of over 50, and it started out with just a few.

when we were driving back home from nature day this year, it was a gorgeous day, and i wanted to continue my "taking it all in". so i made my husband stop along the side of the road a couple of times so i could take more pictures. some were taken while driving or at stop lights, too. there were just such neat clouds as we drove and the sky was the most beautiful shade of fall blue, that i had to capture it on camera.

fall is my favorite season, if you couldn't tell.

maybe next year, i will have a much nicer camera than just my dinky little canon, with which i can take much better pictures.
