Sunday Stills – Fall Color Ochre – 10.11.20

Story Mill Community Park in Bozeman, MT in September, 2019.

The feature image is the best and only photo I have of signs of fall. It was taken last September in Bozeman, Montana. In Florida, we don’t get the change with the red, orange & yellow until January when much of the rest of the country is in snow and ice. At that point, it is very little for a short period of time. We have to manufacture our fall colors with silk flowers and autumn decor.

This post is in response to TERRI WEBSTER SCHRANDT Sunday Stills challenge. The theme this week is Fall Colors/Ochre.

Fall color wreath hanging on my front doors.

My front doors are decorated with my autumn wreaths. I bypassed the Halloween decor this year because of the pandemic.

The buffet in the dining room is splashed with fall colors.

Okay, so I put out a couple of jack-o-lanterns with my Thanksgiving decor so I could try to get into the fall mood. Foul mood is more like it since I won’t have trick-or-treaters. I guess I could dress up just for fun.

Oil paint colors highlighting Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna & Burnt Umber.  All fall colors.

It has been a long time since I painted anything. Simply because I’m just not that good at it. I did want to show off my Yellow Ochre here!

Gulf Fritillary Butterfly crossed my path today with it's orange and black colors.

I walked outside today to take Heaven out for a potty break. This Gulf Fritillary Butterfly kept flying around me, so I managed a not so great shot with my IPhone. At least this critter appears to be ready for Halloween all decked out in Orange and Black.

Rock formations in Red Rock Canyon located 17 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip on Charleston Boulevard/State Route 159 in Nevada. In the bright sunlight, the colors come out in shades of brown, orange, and reds. The Visitor Center is closed, but you can still access the 13 mile Scenic Drive that has overlooks, parking areas, picnic areas and dozens of hiking trails.

    • Thank you so much. Theyโ€™ve been up since mid-September. They usually only get about 3 weeks up on the door because of our Halloween display takes a few days to tear down. Not having it this year due to Covid. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. I tbink it’s really nice when butterflies decide to join in on a walk! It doesn’t happen often, so it’s very special. Nice colours, Lisa.

  2. Wonderful, Lisa! Even here where fall colors abound (a bit delayed since it will be 90 again today), I usually fill my house with fall silk flowers. Yours are lovely and great shot of the orange butterfly! Im jealous of your paint tube collection. It makes such a great image!

    • Thanks so much Terri! Hopefully it will cool off there soon. It was a nice day yesterday. Our high was 74. Itโ€™s not bad today. Overcast with a breeze in low 80s. I have 3 sets of paints & then several individual tubes. I just havenโ€™t gotten them out in a long time. Iโ€™m just not that good at it and it takes forever for oils to dry. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. When did you snap the photo of the rocks? They look familiar, I passed by the visitor center a few days ago, there were a few cars parked around it. Not sure if it’s open though. The colors are fabulous! โค๏ธ

    • This was a few years ago. I looked on several sites & it said the drive was open but the visitor center is still closed. Maybe it hasnโ€™t been updated. ๐Ÿ˜Š

      • Thanks, Lisa. Honestly, I’ve drove the loop a couple times, but haven’t been in that building since I was married. It’s so nice here today!
