On Saturday, I got the chance to get out of the house on my own. I spent my time visiting the pond and the nearby hill that I went to last Sunday. Since it was the middle of the day, there were a few people in the park and at the pond who, like me, were watching the birds and the scenery.
Many trees have been stripped of their foliage.
The birds were having a fine day preening,
..and of course, flying. The flock of gulls took to the air several times for a few minutes and went back to their base.
It was sunny when I began my little escape. A couple of hours later, grey clouds have covered the sky.
I am joining LET’S BE WILD’S Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape, Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: Water and Nuture Photography Fall 2012 Challenge- Red/Foliage. Have fun – join the photo challenge. 🙂 Please check out the great entries.
Have a great week. I hope everyone is safe from the storm.

The swans are gorgeous!!! And you are not too late. You can actually enter at any time.
Thanks, Cee. 🙂 I am very glad to be able to participate in your challenge. 🙂
I love the photos – especially the last one with the two swans. When I was a child, I saw a painting of two swans in that pose and I loved how their necks formed a heart. You have such beautiful fall colors – thanks for sharing them 🙂
Like you, I have always been fascinated with swans. When I was young, I only saw a swan from a soy sauce label 🙂 and then as a notebook brand. SO, I was always fascinated by pictures with those graceful swans. I didn’t know that there were swans nearby. You could imagine how excited I was – see, I even went back to that pond. NExt spring, I will certainly check if the swans are still there.
Very nice pictures, but I fell in love with the last one:)
Yeah, I like the last one two. I waited for them to get close. They did not form a perfect heart though. After that picture, they parted again.
Beautiful pictures. I like all of them. Great work. 🙂
Thanks, Arindam. 🙂
Wonderful photos. The swans are magnificent. 🙂
Very nice photo collections! Love the colour of the the trees. Great shots! 🙂
All set to win this one as well Imelda? Beautiful!
ha ha ha Oh that will be a bonus Madhu. I already had fun being out on my own, enjoying the scenery, and having some decent photos to post. The other entries are lovely – you should see some of them. You should join too if only to add more beautiful photos to the mix. 🙂
Hi Imelda, you’ve captured beautiful scenery and special moments, especially the swans together in the last photo!
The photo of the two swans is breathtaking! WOW!
These photos seriously brought a smile to my face. What a gorgeous place! Thanks so much for sharing with us in the Nurture Photo Challenge. Sorry for not stopping by sooner. I’m a little behind on blog visits. 😦
These are great nature shots… love the colors of the leaves on the trees. 😉
