I played golf yesterday with two friends, who were surprised to see me put my camera in my golf bag. I told them I wanted to get pictures of the beautiful red berry trees at the back of the 9th green. They said, without me even asking (!), that that was fine, as long as I wasn’t going to be taking pictures of them playing golf. Hmmmm. Welll, I may have had that thought in the back of my mind, but I was most interested in just getting some shots of those berry trees and this beautiful Fall day. So, no pictures of golfers, just of the golf course.
I have no idea what kind of trees these are, but they are just full of red berries, which I assume must be poisonous because I would think birds would be all over them if they weren’t. And I didn’t see one bird near them.
The trees are beginning to turn, the air was cool, and it was just a perfect day to be outdoors.
I like the old barn that the golf course uses as their maintenance building.
Especially the doors.
But, I hear it’s going to be torn down and replaced. I understand that as a practical business decision, but in my heart, I wish it didn’t have to happen.
Everything in this picture was just pretty much green, so I like it best as a black and white which I think emphasizes the pretty shadow.
Golf, or any outdoor activity, can be very relaxing, if you don’t worry excessively about your score, and just enjoy being outside in the fresh air with enjoyable companions.
May you find a reason today to be outdoors and enjoy this beautiful time of year.
p.s. The one thing I truly miss is the smell of burning leaves, which used to be so common this time of year.
