Wednesday Wisdom 2

I started out thinking I’d post a wise quote for today’s Wednesday Wisdom but, no surprise, I got side-tracked.

I got so caught up in enjoying reading Autumn and October quotes that I was more inspired to share something along those lines.

It must be the right decision, otherwise I’d be sharing something else! (there’s some wisdom for ya right there!)

It is the perfect pause…

Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!

Photowalk 27

A few days ago I went for a hike and everything was in beautiful shades of gold.

So apparently, I was hiking at the end of a rainbow (get it? because of all the gold! haha!)

ahem…

Well, anyway, after the recent snow and subsequent leaves-turning-brown-and-falling-off-the-trees-way-too-soon (which makes me feel a bit Autumn-cheated), I thought I’d share my hike with you.

I started down this path:

and found myself here:

and looked up and saw:

and finished my hike here:

Have you ever seen such amazing golden foliage?

Reds have a tendency to catch my eye as they show off their vibrance, but this was so beautiful to walk under and through.

I was awed.

But alas (<– I love that word!), soon I will be waxing poetic about snow…

More Autumn loveliness!

Today is a rainy and dreary day here so I’m sharing some photographs I took a few days ago when it was sunny.

It’s also an attempt to raise my own spirits because of the weather, of course, but also because I’ve been (trying to) add photograph options to my online galleries and running into some of the usual pull-your-hair-out moments. Having said that, I was able to add a “POP” art gallery on my Imagekind site (http://ArtbyCarol.imagekind.com/POP) and will slowly get more on the “Nature” gallery and also on the Fine Art America site. (I’ll add the urls for those tomorrow!)

In the meantime, enjoy Fall!

So pretty, right?!

See ya tomorrow!

PS: Locals! Remember that the Small Works Show exhibit opens Friday evening and runs through the beginning of January. I hope some of you can make it ~ I’d love to see you!

Spending time in the great outdoors…

Fun is good!

Photowalk 25

One month into Autumn and…

It snowed!!

Do you believe it?!

I planned on today being a photo-taking day. One of fall foliage and farmers in the fields (yes, went for alliteration again! hehe!) who knew I’d get more than I bargained for?!

SNOW!!

As soon as it started I grabbed the camera and out I went! (it was cold!)

I’m not sure I’m prepared for it to be this white and cold so early in the season (you know that I loves me some seasons!)

…but I am sure that Mother Nature sure has a flair for beauty! (the show-off! haha!)

PS: Louden? Not much of a fan of the white stuff. I’ll share more on that, tomorrow!

More Autumn-ness

The colors are so pretty, I can’t stop taking photos!

Sharing some quotes I saw that I like, too.

Enjoy!

“A tangerine and russet cascade of kaleidoscopic leaves, creates a tapestry of autumn magic upon the emerald carpet of fading summer.” (J. Lindberg)

“Autumn is the eternal corrective. It is ripeness and color and a time of maturity; but it is also breadth, and depth, and distance.” (H. Borland)

“Autumn begins with a subtle change in the light, with skies a deeper blue, and nights that become suddenly clear and chilled.” (Wolfe & Dennis)

“A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made.  The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.” (E. Sloane)

It’s definitely turning to fall here, temps have cooled off (brrr!!) and the air is crisp. I’ll be out taking as many photos as I can while the leaves are still vibrant. I hope to catch some farmers in the fields, too! …and maybe a cow or two!

Have a fantastic week!

Seasonal Harmony

I love fall! Fall is exciting. It’s apples and cider. It’s an airborne spider. It’s pumpkins in bins. It’s burrs on dog’s chins. It’s wind blowing leaves. It’s chilly red knees. It’s nuts on the ground. It’s a crisp dry sound. It’s green leaves turning. And the smell of them burning. It’s clouds in the sky. It’s fall. That’s why…

I love fall. (author unknown… but pretty spot-on!)
