Autumn Colors

November 3, 2009

The colors of autumn have always been a thrill for me. But they are especially wonderful this year, because it’s my first time in many years to live in an area where I can see them first hand.

Leaf 2


I loved these amazing orange leaves and tree skeleton against the most gorgeous blue sky. I played a bit with the image in the second and third frames.

Tree and Sky

The leaves are already half gone from a lot of the trees. I know because they are all over my yard. Raking comes next. That I do remember.

    I share your passion for Fall colors. It is the Beloved’s pallete reminding us of all the beauty of Light and its component wavelengths. Your photographs are a delight. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. I’m no professional photographer, but find myself documenting more and more of my experience of the wonder of nature.

    The brilliance of colors is extraordinary this year — or was. Almost all of it is gone by now. I collected the most amazing leaf colors in
    All found during one hour!

    Isn’t it lovely Martha? I am sad that the red maples have already gone (they are my favorite) but to see the elegant frame of the tree trunks is a real delight. Great pictures and yes, raking will be next!

      Jess, we still have quite a few intact trees around the area, so I need to get out tomorrow and shoot some more. The leaves are really starting to drop now!!

    Autumn is my favorite season, though it is all too short. Your photos are terrific, and I especially like what you did with the tree skeleton. I was admiring the bare bones of some trees just today, myself. There is so much beauty in the underlying structure of things.

      Angela, it is amazing how short it is. I also love bare trees against the sky. Have been looking at a lot of them lately out in the fields where they are never pruned, and love how the tiny branches terminate in beautiful harmony, creating a smooth outline of the tree.

    Ooh! The blue of the sky in that last shot – fantastic! Here in S CA we don’t get much fall color 😦 But, we do get lots of pomegranates and citrus!

      Candy, I came here from citrus-land myself! So I’m now re-learning what seasons are about, and how the sky is when it’s away from the city. So beautiful.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
