Many of the leaves are changing. I was at the track yesterday morning watching morning works, and then wondered around to get some scenic stuff...just thought I'd share :)

Thanks :) It was such a beautiful morning, I wish I had gone back out today, but need a day to spend at home. It's noon and I am still in my pj's LOL
I've never done much 'scenic' type of stuff, so it was fun to just browse around.

Last fall we were in a drought, so everything was brown/crunchy/dead before anything could even remotely turn pretty. Such a treat to have the pretty colors this fall.

The whole reason I went out was to photograph a horse who is quite popular right now as she is being aimed to race against the boys next month in a BIG race.
Of course I knew the odds were against me since at 6:45am it's pitch dark outside, and the lights at our local track aren't very good <we don't have night time racing at our track>.

I had to manually focus in the dark, put my manual settings skills to the test and pray that I could manage 'something' since it's for media use...not going to complain too much...

At the track she'll be going too, the lighting is much better, so I hope to get some better stuff then...they have lighting set up for night time racing, so it's 20x better than our track's lighting.

Same here :( We have been unusually warm for the past week- week and a half. Today is supposed to start the cool down when the rain moves in. Blah

Yep It's Keeneland! My 'home away from home' haha :) It's such a wonderful place. The live meet started on Fri, ends the last Sat of the month before going to Churchill. Should be some exciting turf mares running on Saturday, I can't wait :)

Thanks! I saw on the news this afternoon that the leaves are really starting to change in eastern KY - in the foothills, and sure wish I could get over that way to see them. I would ♥ to go to the Natural Bridge state park, but I just don't see having time to do it :(

Beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing them!

We had a lot of color but a wind storm blew through and many trees are bare now. :(
