Autumn Beauty: a Photojournal

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.” ― Stanley Horowitz

 

This mosaic called autumn is a feast for the eyes.

The leaves on the Ash trees along our street have turned slowly this year, from deep green to plum, then burgundy and golden. The statuesque Maple out our back windows still burns a vibrant orange and yellow, the perfect compliments to a pure blue sky.

The leaves, spinning, twirling in the breeze have enough whimsy to be from a fairy tale, and yet they pile in our grass, waiting to be raked and leapt in.

This autumn season is beautiful.

It’s as if autumn were the indicator to slow down and see what surrounds us as we careen into the end of another year.

It’s nature’s way of showing us splendor and sunshine before it all fades away for a while.

In 10 weeks, we will turn the calendar page to 2015 and it will be a new year. It is a chance to sit for a few moments.

My Instagram photos from the past week or so. Can you tell I’m enamored with autumn?

I’d love to hear what trees and colors and autumnal things you’re loving this year … thanks for sharing!

  1. Oh, this is glorious. It’s been a more muted fall here, less dazzling and glorious, but beautiful in its own way. And there’s something elegiac about fall light, every year I notice it more and more. Your photographs capture that so gorgeously. Thank you. xox

    1. I always think of the autumn colors in the Northeast as being the brightest, and I loved a photo you posted from last fall of Vermont (I think?). For some reason, this fall has been brighter than I remembered past falls in Ohio, and it has captivated me. I agree about the fall light. Thank you, Lindsey!

  2. Here in Utah our autumn consists of Indian summer days with cooler nights and early mornings. The mountains and canyons are full of vibrant colors–yellow, orange and red leaves. Things I love about autumn: the night sky, sweater weather, and the dahlias thriving in my garden.
