Wild & Wonderful Wednesday #5

Welcome back to Wild & Wonderful Wednesday!  I have a little bit of wild and a little bit of wonderful to share with you this week.  I'll let you decide which you think is which.  :)

Saturday morning Keira and I ventured out to purchase her a brand-spankin' new violin.  On the way home, we stopped at a local conservancy to see what we could see.  These geese were hanging out by the pond.  We were able to get pretty close to them and they never hopped in the water.  Maybe it was too cold?  :)

This is the pond they were sitting by.  Oh how I miss the beautiful colors of autumn already.

Last few leaves
Although I did get to see a little color left on our walk on Friday.  These leaves were still hanging on and the light caught my eye.

Sweet pony
And our sweet friendly pony was out again.  She just loves people it would seem.  We didn't go pet her this time because there was a huge puddle between us and her.  And no way around it.  :)

New violin
Last, I was playing around with photographing Keira's new violin under the Christmas tree.  I pictured in my mind the lights sparkling off of it creating a beautiful glow.  Didn't happen.  So I opted for a different view.  And I shot it in black and white just for kicks, then added a layer of golden brown to make it sepia-ish.  Finally, I added a layer of Kim Klassen's Phoebe texture.  Her theme is Gratitude this week.  I am grateful for many things, one of which is that we had the money set aside to purchase Keira a new violin and return the rental.  She will be playing the new violin until her fingers bleed.  And then a little bit more.  :)

Okay, now it is your turn!  Link up your Wild & Wonderful photos below.  
Just a few things first ...
