It's hard to believe that summer is coming to a close. I was surprised the other day to go riding and to see dead leaves on the ground. I could smell that particular smell of fall, the smell of things dying. In particular those leaves. Each season seems to have a distinct smell to it.
The shift in the change of seasons from summer to fall always feels too swift for me. It's like someone has flicked on a switch and the season has changed. Alas, summer, I bid you farewell and look forward to your return next year. But, I'm sure, we will still have a few "Indian" summer days left!
In August, we went for another wonderful ride to Springbank Road in Calgary. I hope you enjoy some of these shots whilst on our journey. Blessings and keep you "posted"!

The weather started to turn a little but it was still nice. We made it home just in time before it started to rain.
A patch of field where I decided to take a rest and enjoy the quiet and solitude. Only a few kilometers out of the city and it's surprisingly quiet.
We saw three grown deer jump up and run off. I think they were taking a nap and were startled by some noise.
Two beautiful horses on someone's property that said hello. The one in the back was more shy than the black one.
