Travel Theme: Autumn


Autumn has a quality of melancholy; a change of light from bright yellow fresh green and gold to chromatic shades and hues, shadows from rain clouds and misty mornings. It’s the beginning of the end of Summer which we look back to with longing, a time to remember, a time to gather in the family, a time to husband resources.

Nature is ever-generous in providing for the natural realm, cleverly ensuring seed and preserving energy for the coming explosion of Spring.

In the photo the empty deck chairs represent the departure of Summer; the flaming shrub, the change of season with a final glorious fanfare. Lakes will freeze, fish hibernate and leaves return from whence they came.

I love Autumn and the coming winds of change.

  1. I’m with, Gilly. I’ve never been drawn to capture fall changes. I suppose I should try harder.

    and every year I try to embrace autumn but fail miserably, I’m just a tropival creature that should migrate south!
