Leftovers Again?

As I tend to do from time to time, I have a few items left over on my hard drive which don't seem to tie in with one another in any way. Since I don't feel like cooking up something new, these leftovers will have to do. All were taken near my previous home, or Frank's or while we were on the road house hunting. I hope you enjoy them.


Haliburton town
This is the town of Haliburton - one of the places near which we hoped to find our new home. It's not where we ended up.





miners bay rocks
On our way back, we pass through Miner's Bay. Aren't these rocky walls beautiful?







hubcap reflectin
On the highway, I couldn't resist snapping a photo of our car's reflection in the shiny hubcap of a passing vehicle.







hawthorn berries blue sky
Hawthorn berries in their prime, contrasting nicely against the brilliant, blue sky.







tree silhouette
I'm not sure why it is that I like this image but I do. A mature tree in late summer on my late afternoon walk.







south side cedar
This lovely old tree can be found in the south cedar grove in the field across from where Frank lived. It always entertains the sun and shadows so hospitably.

One of the many Monarchs that enjoys the nearby butterfly garden.







street scene
On my way out of the park and back toward Frank's old place, the early autumn sunlight poured itself into the street creating long shadows and saturated hues.







frank fretting
And what nicer way could there be to end the day than to be serenaded?

Hilary, I love leftovers and these are no exception. The image of the car in the wheel is wonderful. Thanks for sharing your "yummy" leftovers. Happy weekend, Oma Linda

Kamana said...

big leafy trees and the way they create shadows in the sun is always a joy. love your trees photos.

Haddock said...

One can always connect the dots of leftover pics if you can come up with a story line.
That one of the steel hub cap is wonderful considering that both the vehicles were in motion.

They are all good shots. The one I like the best is the jogger approaching on the sidewalk. The depth of field is set up just perfect. Then there's a feast of fall colours for the eyes. Nice.

I like the romanticism that dominates all comments made ​​about the photos.Especially in the first.

Dianne said...

the light in these shots is amazing!

Brian Miller said...

cool pic of the tree in the sun and shadow.....hey you can make great things of leftovers....just saying...smiles.

TexWisGirl said...

love your misc. posts. :) really loved the trees and light!

Anvilcloud said...

That Miners Bay rock cutting is quite impressive. I would think that real estate is somewhat less inflated where you are compared to Haliburton.

If this is what leftovers look like,I'll take leftovers any time.

A fun selection

Roan said...

The best leftovers ever! I agree, there is something about the tree that I really like, and love the final shot. Too bad we don't have audio.

Such delightful pictures, indeed. A marvellous meal of srevotfel.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

I've always loved leftovers. Often, they are better later than before. Love the one on the sidewalk. Weaving through the light and leaves.

Leah J. Utas said...

Wonderful images, Hilary.

What an eye you have! I get lost in each of your pictures, imagining the bigger story...

Leftovers can make the best and most unique meals!

Stephen Hayes said...

The light in that first image looks magical.

Tammie Lee said...

a wonderful collection Hilary!

Yes, definitely last fall. I like the leaves on the sidewalk even though i hate raking leaves. You have a nice end to this post.

So who is serenading you? The fisherman? All of these are really lovely and it is hard to pick a favorite.

Lisa Gordon said...

Your leftovers are wonderful, Hilary!

Stacey Dawn said...

I started to say Oh! I like....then kept scrolling.... love the variety of them all. SD

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

Well, whatever it is that makes you like the shot of the mature tree in summer must have worked on me, too, because I loved it. And I can't believe you managed the hubcap shot between two moving vehicles. How many times did you try that before you got a shot that worked? :)

Slamdunk said...

Your photo of the rock walls near Miner's Bay remind me of some of the drives around here. It makes me want to stop the car, get out with the kids and hunt for fossils. Though the narrow shoulder does not look to be conducive for that.

Daryl said...

you've proven once again that you can make any ordinary thing interesting

Betty Manousos said...

wow hilary, those rocky walls are really amazing!so glad you shared your leftovers my friend.
such orgeous photos, great lighting in some of them and oh gosh, that last one is just so superb and inviting.
the colours and tones are warm and earthy in it.
overall, a stunning post as usual.

big hugs!

L. D. said...

You have captured some great shots here. You have a good eye in picking great color.

Gail Dixon said...

Very nice collection of photos from your part of the world. The one of the rocky walls grabbed my attention with those golden trees lined along the top. Very nice set!!

ladyfi said...

Ah - a wonderful series of shots!

Chris said...

Loved all your leftovers. Re: tree photo that you don't know why you like it? I like it, too -- a whole lot! Look at all those lovely, lovely angles and triangles formed by the tree branches! Wonderful!

Bob Bushell said...

A beautiful blog and to be senenaded with the music, and the butterfly.

Lady Lilith said...

Leftovers are fun. Just because you did not take them today does not mean they should stay hidden.

Indrani said...

I liked the capture of the reflection on the steel hubcap. Ever alert!

Anita said...

Seeing the first image and reading about your flexible house hunting decisions make me wonder about you and Frank's livelihood. It seems that distance was not an issue. No answer required. I'll just say that it's wonderful that you were able to choose a place that is just right for the two of you!

The car in the hubcap - cool!

The tree in image #5 - I like it too. The well defined lines of the solid black tree with a backdrop of wild leaves makes an appealing photo.

Glo said...

No pussyfooting around, (oh right, that was the wee paws post), your photos are delightful whether they are the main meal or leftovers!

Im A Chickadeegirl said...

Lovely photos! You have a way of seeing and capturing beautiful light!

Michael Manning said...

Beautiful and varied shots of life. I enjoyed stopping by! :)

Kerri Farley said...

Now those are MY KIND of Leftovers!

I love the area. You have taken wonderful photos. We've visited Haliburton many times.
cheers
