Summer is Fading

The Ag planes are spraying cotton defoliant this time of the year and that is some really nasty smelling stuff. I suppose it's necessary though to open some of those stubborn bolls and make the leaves drop for a cleaner harvest.
Boll of cotton, ready for picking.
The sunsets come earlier and while they remain so beautiful, the early ones mean the longer nights that I dread so much are coming also.
These little beauties will last until a frost puts them down. I wonder if we'll have a frost before Thanksgiving this year.


Have y'all noticed how much fun I'm having using the hdr technique on some of my photos?  I love how it enhances them just right.

Happy Thursday everyone!

They're very nice Ms Brenda!

Ya'll are way over my head in the photo stuff. :)

I'm sorry about those long dreaded nights, though. God bless you, my friend.

I don't know anything about photography, but your photos are really bright and sharp. I love the ball of cotton. We need to go south to see cotton, but I love it. I guess because I love to wear cotton.

*HUGS*

I think your photos look gorgeous Brenda!! I just love the Fall season as I cannot stand the heat! It's what comes after the fall that I don't like...here's hoping we don't get a zillion inches of snow this year!!
