I love taking walks in the fall.
I love kicking up the leaves and hearing them crunch beneath my feet.
I love the colors of fall . . . yellows, golds, oranges, reds.
This walk was all about color . . .
The soft yellow and gold in the photo above was a happy accident as I didn't realize the camera setting was on soft. The painterly quality of the image is just lovely. In another life, I'd love to be a painter. I dabble here and there but have little real training. My aunt was a wonderful watercolor artist and I believe I inherited her artistic side.
As I walked, I noticed that some trees are still completely full of leaves and beautiful glowing colors. The range of colors here is just amazing . . .
On the other hand, some trees have only a handful of leaves still hanging on set against an intense clear blue sky . . .
The park nearby has this lovely mini grove of trees. The band of bright green running through the middle of the photo caught my eye.
The intensity of the reds is always beautiful. Colorado falls are mostly yellows and golds so the really red reds here and there are a real treat . . .
The golden tones of ornamental grasses simply glow this time of year . . .
After all the beautiful colors, this is what I found outside my back door this morning. White! We've had a lovely long fall but this was bound to happen sooner or later . . .
I'm hanging on to fall just like this last little leaf . . .
In case you're wondering, I am still sewing. A little. Just not as much as usual because we've got some house projects that are eating into my time right now.
Hope you enjoyed another walk with me. Each time I go out now I find myself looking at things in a whole new way. Try it. You might be surprised at what you actually see.
