FC: One Spectacular Fall Day Photography and Poetry by CJ Carter
1: October 2010 This book was made for you by Carol Carter, a native Nebraskan and Paraeducator at West 5th Elementary School. I love to be outside enjoying nature every day. I hope this book will inspire you to stop and enjoy all that nature gives you each amazing day. All photos were taken within 20 miles of Ogallala,Nebraska | I stopped one October day after crossing the South Platte River near Ogallala, Nebraska. The Fall colors called me to stop for just a moment to enjoy them. I stopped and strolled along the riverbank to capture these breath taking photos. That night I was inspired to write the poetry to go with these beautiful nature pictures. Take a moment to slow down and enjoy nature every day. from behind my camera, CJ Carter
3: I stopped for a moment one spectacular Fall day, | Ogallala South Platte River Bridge
4: to listen to the river,
5: the leaves, | and the sunshine play.
6: the leaves glowed and shimmered,
7: the | sun | went down | as
8: and a few Fall leaves, silently float to the ground.
10: As the gentle breeze blew the leaves danced around | as if they knew that they'd been found,
11: the sun, the river, and the leaves at play.
13: Oh, what I would have missed that day,
14: If I hadn't stopped to hear nature say;
15: Slow down and listen! | Watch nature play! | Trailer House Gulch, Near Big Springs
16: Capture a special moment every day!
17: Renew your spirit.
18: Take time to pray!
19: Breathe in fresh air, each beautiful day.
20: Listen to the river, rolling along, quietly singing it's bubbly song.
21: Watch the leaves dance, having fun in the sun, | showing their best before the day's done.
22: Enjoy the sunset, it's color and beauty, silently boasting with brilliant duty, each day before it fades away.
23: And the full moon shines down to finish our day.
24: Then hurry back on your busy way, Renewed in spirit because you stopped today... | South Fork Vineyard
25: to listen to the river, and watch the leaves play, as the sun goes down, One Spectacular Fall Day.
