Heralding Fall

Although the foliage here in Mississippi hasn't started turning yet, there are a few signs along the roadsides heralding the arrival of Fall.  I recently ventured off the beaten path in hopes of capturing some of those signs with my camera, and wasn't disappointed.

My first stop was at a beautiful cotton patch not far from Vicksburg.  It was a perfect day, and puffy white clouds against the brilliant blue September sky looked as if they were reflecting the tufts of white cotton from the fields below.  

Here are a few more pictures I captured of the fields and fence rows of the countryside around Vicksburg.

I hope you're enjoying the arrival of Fall wherever you are, and can take the time to really appreciate God's glory up close and personal.

October Blue

In an effort to spotlight October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the beautiful Old Court House Museum in Vicksburg is bathed in blue lights.  Although the bulbs are blue, the overall effect makes the building look purple. 


There was also a beautiful sunset the day I captured these pictures, and I kind of like this shot of the old houses silhouetted against the gorgeous sky in the background.
