Sunday Selections #140 or the (very) brief fall in Wyoming

The Sunday Selections meme is hosted by River at Drifting through life. The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River. A chance to show off some of the photographs you have gathering dust in murky corners.

Obviously, I can't count as I appear to have jumped from #137 to# 140 but have an excellent excuse, please Miss!!

I was here in the Cowboy State visiting two small and utterly delightful cowboys and yes, totally biased as I gave birth to their father.......

Fall is brief here, 5,000 feet up in the Laramie mountain range near Casper, and since last week when these pictures were taken, winter has arrived with 8-12 inches of snow and downed power lines!


Three of the four reasons I visit Wyoming !








 



All of these photographs were taken within half an hour of each other but, goodness, didn't the light deepen as evening came on?

  1. Beautiful. The season - and three of the four reasons you have been absent (and I am sure the fourth reason is also gorgeous).
    I hope that the damage the early storms have done can be rectified quickly.

  8. What beautiful shots. I have always, always wanted to visit Wyoming. There is so much variety in these photos.
    Here in Australia we're in the opposite season, Spring.
