A Glimpse Of A Change Of Seasons



I know Autumn has arrived but I am a little behind the times, and doing a little catching up here.

For those of you who know me, know that many of my photos are taken along the waterfront trails, along the city  where I live. I decided to step back from the trails, and show you  a little of the Bigger Picture. Those who know me know how I love to walk, and bike the trails that follow the Bay, and the river that flows into it. 

These photos only depict a small portion of The Bay, which is fairly large, and leads into Lake Ontario.

I decided on this hot, sunny, late summer, afternoon to take a walk along The Bay, from a distance, but did end up on part of the waterfront trail near the end of my walk. This was 5 days before the end of summer, and it was so Beautiful. I had the afternoon off work, and I just had to get out there with my camera, and enjoy the great outdoors.

I hope you have enjoyed the walk, and the view. Goodbye Summer and hello Autumn.

Have a wonderful Sunday, and remember…. When things look down, look up.

Blessings to all.  Dianne dsphotocats :)


  1. I'll take cloud pics and turn them into grayscale, get all kinds of interesting abstractions.

    Looks like a nice walk about

  2. Hi there - thank you for your comment. You live in a gorgeous place! Lovely images and words... can't wait to visit again!

  3. Lovely walking along with you and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Thank you for letting me tag along.
    The photos are awesome!

  4. Good Morning
    Each photo is so very beautiful. Thanks for taking me along with you on your walk here also.
    Very peaceful . I love the clouds. The red leaves and the seasons change reminds me of the beauty God will show us with each passing season even if we struggle along the path just to keep on going , he is always here and never will leave.
    Your a blessing . Your prayers I know are being heard.
    Hugs from the West .
    and if you dont mind I think I will stay and listen to your music for a while.

  5. Thank you John, Stacey, Beth and Lisa,for coming along on my walk. :)

    That would be so awesome if I could walk with each one of you. Think of the stories and laughs we would have. Ha! I think Lisa would keep us all in stitches. She is quite the gal, and we all love her. :)
    But we sure do enjoy each other here, sharing our blogs, telling so many stories of our daily lives, things so dear to our hearts, Our Faith, our struggles, and our victories, and so much more. Getting to know each one of you, makes the Journey that much brighter, and makes the rough spots a little smoother. :)

    Thank you Lisa, and yes you were with me in my thoughts and prayers that day, just as you are today. I always said, "When I stop seeing the Beauty around me, I am in trouble". Even when my dad passed away, God continued to show me the Beauty, and gave me a Passion to go out there and capture it with my camera. That is part of why the Swan Family is so dear to me.
    God is Good, even when things go wrong, and we don't understand why. There is a Reason, and He will always see us through, and make us stronger in the end. Think about what it takes to make one Pearl.
    Yes, we all must keep on going.
    Like wise Lisa, You are a Blessing to me and so many others.
    Hope you enjoyed the music.
    Hugs, Dianne :)
