Montana Glimpses

some trees have dropped their leaves
a perfect perch for a
Bald Eagle

some trees still cloaked in their golds

leaves float upon the pond

last night 
was the first night 
that the ponds froze

these beautiful flowers celebrating life
in front of the health food store
not sure how many frosts they can exist through

autumn beckons life to sink below the surface of the earth
to rest deeply
till next year

I am enjoying the last of autumns
fungal beauty



  1. gorgeous images. love your fall landscapes

  2. Fantastic series of photos. All beautiful! Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Good evening Tammie Lee
    Oh my, what gorgeous photos! The colors are so beautiful.. Thank you for sharing your part of the world.

  4. Your shots are all spectacular, Tammie - you achieve such depth in the photos. I feel as though I'm entering them! Enjoy what's left of autumn. Snow on the ground here.

    1. thank you Barb. yes, when the ponds freeze i am reminded of winter around the corner.

  5. Yes, autumn is upon us and nature winds down to rest as we all enjoy the last colours and the freshness of the air. Beautiful shots of your part of the world, Tammie. Such beauty captured! I love the soft, gentle tones in photos six and seven and want to walk on that winding road!

    1. fun to take another look at 6&7 through you, thank you Sandra.

  6. It is truly soothing, that knowledge and sureness of a new cycle starting in some months time, when the chlorophyll starts flowing back into the leaves of the trees, with the warmer sunshine telling them it is time, when colors change again from monochromatic to bright.
    Soon we will get snow and ice photos from you, as spectacular as your pictures of all four seasons.
    I like how you love natural, and how your eyes are "seeing"...
    Happy Sunday Tammie! :-)

    1. thank you Yael. Yes, the cycles are turning. I can feel winter not far away, though my heart is still in Autumn. I know better now, by the time winter arrives my heart will greet it.

  7. Stunning images... fabulous series!

  8. I love the first image, the bird draws the eye in to the beautiful structure of the bare branches.
    Montana is a wonderland in every season!

    Enjoy your week Tammie,

    1. i enjoy considering the bird and branches anew, thank you Ruby.

  12. Seasons change. And with such beauty.

  13. ...lovely, Tammie. I especially like this phrase: "autumn beckons life to sink below the surface of the earth
    to rest deeply till next year"

  14. Lovely autumn shots! That eagle has quite a perch!

  15. As always, your photos and narrative charm my heart and eyes, dear Tammie.

  18. Such a long and beautiful farewell! Touching all our senses... I'm feeling a little sad, although I know that your wonderful photos will be here, when I need to remember this palette of autumn colours, in a grey and cold winter day...
    Thank you, Tammie!!

    Autumn is beautiful and you show it through your images and words :-)
    A pond is nice but your autumn pond is so much nicer!

  29. Stunning pictures - I am loving seeing how autumn treats the various places round the world through posts such as this. Autumn seems to have greeted you with rich hues in the landscape and low temperatures with the pond freezing over!

  30. Your photos are simply beautiful, soothing to the soul. But at the same time, there’s something lonely and sad about the last phase of autumn, the process that things get muted in colors.


  31. It is always a treat stopping by and seeing beautiful images! I really love the fungal beauty Tammi!
    Have a great week! Lots has changed for me as of late.


Warm greetings to you~
