Wow. Thanks for this challenge. Sometimes I can’t think of a thing that I can use for a challenge and don’t have time to take the right photo, but this week’s “Sunday Stills Challenge: F is for …” has delivered a market basket of choices of photos containing or about words beginning with “F”. So here we go:

First, let’s look at FLIGHT. For those of us who love nature we have a bald eagle flying down the Wisconsin River Valley.

F is for Flight 3

If you prefer mechanized and somewhat crazy acrobatic flight, you have the Royal Canadian Snowbirds and their jets:

F is for Flight 1

Taking wing from the freedom of flight, we enter the world of fences. Here we have a photo of the fence around the governor’s mansion in Wisconsin. And talk about luck, the photo shows the fenced-in mansion in the fog thus scoring a “twofer” in the world of photo challenges.

I have hundreds of flower photos but I feel confident that such photos will be fertile ground for responses to the challenge so I am skipping these. Rather, I will finish with a photo of a local fireworks display (“Fireworks on the 4th,”another “twofer”) followed natural “fireworks” of the type that come with the changes of the season in one of my favorite times of the year: Fall.

The Word A Week Challenge – Favorite is indeed a challenge because what my favorite photo is changes from time to time. Paralyzed by indecision, I finally decided to post several of my favorites, which as you will see comprise quite an eclectic group.

The beginning of September has always signaled the start of the fall to me although I know that the autumnal equinox is officially still three weeks away. And while the first signs of spring are a relief for those of us in cold climates, for me there is nothing that rivals the feel of a new season as much as the changing colors of autumn‘s trees. The two photos below are of a maple tree in our backyard here in  the not surprisingly named Village of Maple Bluff. I hope you will enjoy them along with the quote below as my entry into this week’s Shoot & Quote Challenge – Feel:
