Scenic Drive

I love my drive home, especially in the Fall. Maryland is so beautiful in the Fall. I think we're nearing the end of all the pretty colorful trees so I decided to take a few shots before all the leaves have fallen.

I just love how the setting sun warms the trees and barns along this road. It's always a nice view.

I also love this little girl that rode in my car the other day. 
My beautiful niece Livi Grace.
(Do not worry we were at a complete stop when this picture was taken!) 
*I used Pioneer Woman's Seventies action on the above & below pictures (I'm loving it)!

And finally, I retouched this photo a bit..

To this...
Gives it a kind of haunted feel, right? I think it has more 'emotion' than the first photo now and puts the focus more on the birdhouse too.
Which do you like better?


P.S.

Oh wow, you guys have some great fall colors out there. I'm a little jealous. All these evergreen trees can't live up to it!

Linked from Heather's blog. I like your photography. I try to use nature shots to illustrate my blog posts on Family Fountain. Do you give permission for any of your shots to be used on other blogs if credit is given to you and your blog?

My main blog is Family Fountain with articles on family issues (marriage, parenting, some on money, Christian attitudes, etc.). Please check it out to see if it would be consistent with the tenor of your blog (I think it is). Cheryl and I do a lot of work in our church with young couples and teens, so many of my articles appeal to that age group - or at least I hope so.

Anyway, thanks for any consideration you give this.
