Welcome Autumn (Sunday Snapshot)



If you stand still outside you can hear it...
 Winter's footsteps, the sound of falling leaves.

Grace-October-6


October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came,
The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And every thing was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band....
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky....
 
~ George Cooper, "October's Party"
 
 

Grace October Storyboard 2013

Autumn is here in Wisconsin.
This week our yellow leaves popped,
next will be the oranges and reds.

It's my favorite season for many reasons but
as a photographer I notice the light is low in the sky, golden
and delicious in color.
This week I took Grace out to a new location and loved the light in the trees.
I can't get enough of seeing these Fall colors
and spending as much time as we can as a family
outdoors.

Beautiful pictures. The leaves are just starting to change here in southern Ohio, peak should be in about 2 weeks.

Every time I see her I have to remind myself that she's far from 20 years old. You know I have sons, right?

So pretty -- love your fall photos and the beautiful Grace. Did you take these late afternoon? We had a very sudden cold front necessitating warm coats already! Hoping for a warmup! Have a great week!

She gets more beautiful with each passing day.

These photos are simply amazing. I get to experience autumn through your eyes/lens. And it's such a great for this Florida girl.
