Pumpkin Friday is here!!! This time I’ll show you the pumpkins I’ve carved for the “The Colony Family Fright Night” event in 2014. These pumpkins gained me 1st Prize. And the award was a $50 Movie Theater gift card. The white skull pumpkin is from Courtney. She asked me, if I could capture a photo of it. It looks so cool, I had to add it to my Jack-o-Lantern photo collection.

This evening I sat outside watching the Sun go down. It was a beautiful and relaxing sunset.

Here are some captures from the waterfall in Prairie Creek Park in Richardson, Texas. I couldn’t have asked for better weather at that morning in October of last year. ❤

Last shot, before I hiked back up to the trail.
Before I cleaned the windshield of the van, I looked up to see how close the Moon and Venus are in the sky this morning. Both looked beautiful, dancing in the eastern skies before sunrise.

At this morning I wanted to check out the little lighthouse at The Harbor in Rockwall, Texas. So, I drove for some photos to Lake Ray Hubbard. The Harbor has a nice lake front with the Hilton Hotel, Cinemark Theater, lots of restaurants, bars, wellness spas, etc. But I was more interested in the fountain, the lighthouse and some other sights, I’ve seen previously online. The weather was gorgeous. The sun warmed my skin, while the wind blew from the lake. The temperatures were in the low 60s. It was a perfect morning for a photo hike at The Harbor in Rockwall at Lake Ray Hubbard.

I have a confession to make: I’m an internet “junkie” and a Pinterest addict. 😉 Now this has been said, I can tell that I love to pin photos of places in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex to check them out later. I stumbled across this park with a small waterfall in Flower Mound.
One October morning of last year, I drove to Stone Creek Park to capture some photos of the park and the waterfall. I wish, the water had been just a tiny little bit higher. But since I wasn’t familiar with this area, it was a good thing and more safe that the water is at a lower level. It was a nice little hike. The foliage slowly changes colors. It was a perfect Autumn morning. 🙂

It hasn’t really rained in a while. The waterfall is low.
Autumn is coming!
