If Only It Could Last


I cried over beautiful things knowing no beautiful thing lasts.
Carl Sandburg, Autumn Movement

Oh, the colors of autumn! Is there anything else like them? 

Last weekend, the North Loup River in the Nebraska Sandhills was dressed in the first hints of gold and red. And, while many of the trees remained green, summer's end was clearly evident.

I'll just let the pictures tell the story.




A bald eagle scouts dinner in the corn fields along the river.



Make it a great day!

  2. Great photos! I love this time of year. Yes, sometimes I wish it would last forever, but would I love it as much as I do if it was always like this? Snow, spring blooms, watermelon in the summer... Still, it is beautiful.

  3. Your pictures are fabulous and the bald eagle...SUPERB! We have them here in this area, but I have yet to see one. The colors here are incredible this year, more beautiful than I have ever seen. I was so afraid that the heat and lack of rain would have done away with the colors...WRONG! Enjoy!

  12. That's some beautiful countryside you have shared. I love the touches of red, especially in your last. What plant has the red leaves in your last?

  13. Thank you SO much for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #51… I’m sorry that I am very late coming by to visit your entry. But I have been fighting being sick all week, trying to fend off a virus and haven’t been doing much besides working and sleeping.. I do hope you’ll forgive me and come by tomorrow to share on Weekly Top Shot’s 1st Anniversary!
