Before we got to the season of pear-trees and turtle-doves, I gave my True Love a new camera for her birthday.  For the pro-photographers and serious amateurs among you, it isn’t something you are going to drool over – unless you have a general problem with drooling.  But it brought some excitement to our little nest.  And a slight bite out of the nest-egg. It is a Canon SX60 HS with 65 times optical zoom.

I thought I’d share a few of Susan’s early images – that also show how quickly the seasons change in these parts. All photos except the first (C) SK Sprange (I may have had a hand in the first)

We took a trip out to the lake to clean up fallen leaves and check the property.  However, most of the leaves were still on the trees.  Oh well, we just had to go back once more this year.

We chose a day when the sun, sky and leaves were working together to create an autumnal symphony of colour.

We could sense the changing season from fall to winter was not far away.

We were right!  Back home in the warmth of the condo we observed our friend taking a break from the wind and the snow. Susan took this shot hand-held, through the patio door glass, from the other side of the living room.  I think she intends to keep the SX60.
