We've had one of the nicest runs of beautiful fall weather I can remember. Constant sunny cloudless days that warm up to be comfortable for shorts and T-shirts but cool down overnight for sleeping. Just beautiful.
I've seen our local flock of Ring-billed Gulls several times, in different farm fields, sometimes broken into smaller flocks, and sometimes one huge flock that must now be several hundred large. Try counting the birds here - and this was only about 1/3 of the flock.
They rose into the air when I was taking a picture of this barn. It's been repainted, and re-roofed as well by the new farm owners.
I just like this view, it goes such a long way over 3 or 4 fencerows to a tiny 4th field in the distance.
And I stopped at the top of Talisman Hill to take a few pictures of the clear blue sky over the valley. This view looks a little southeast, and shows the cliffs of Old Baldy in the upper right, and the 7th Sideroad.
This view still shows the 7th Sideroad, but extends north, showing the escarpment cliffs on the far side. Talisman Mountain Springs Resort, due to re-open soon (we hope), is in the lower centre, and the sewage lagoons on the left.
And this view picks up at that point and extends all the way to Georgian Bay over the top of the old ski lift. If you look at the silhouette of the distant shore you can see the outline of Christian Island, nearly 60 km. away. It's been one of the most beautiful weeks I can remember.
Wonderful landscapes, very nice the photo of the gulls!ReplyDelete
We've been having perfect weather days too for the last couple of weeks. Today though was quite windy.
Wow, gorgeous! I like those long distance views!!ReplyDelete
Such beautiful clear views. Good days at this time of year are often the best you can get. We have a pleasant spell at present which is promised to last for several more days - but we do have some clouds and it's not quite warm enough to resurrect the shorts.ReplyDelete
These large flocks are true spectacles of nature.ReplyDelete

Such a clear and beautiful day! Not a cloud in the sky.ReplyDelete
The views from the high ground particularly appeal to me!ReplyDelete
The Beaver Valley has some of the most beautiful scenery in Southern Ontario.ReplyDelete
Beautiful skies and birds. I'm have a nice run of sunny (if not very hot) weather on a mini-trip to Arizona. Then it's back to the cool and cloudy (possibly) northwest. - MargyReplyDelete
What is it about your part of the world? It always looks lovely.ReplyDelete
Love the red barn and seeing all the gulls. Those views of the hills will be full of colour before too long. I hope you get some pics of them. We've had beautiful weather here too.ReplyDelete
