Happy Fall

"Autumn...the year's last lovliest smile." ~Bryant
I took this just a few minutes ago in the evening light. It's just a little small branch on an otherwise still green leaved oak tree in my yard. A sign of the lovely colors of Autumn yet to come.

Fall is my favorite season.

I like the bokeh you captured and the leaf colors. The trees are changing daily around here. Beautiful!

Pretty colouring, but in suburbia they do make a mess when they fall off onto the streets and clog all the drainage.
Our Spring supposedly starts on September 1st, it came 31 days early - August 1st. It is presently real summer weather, so God help us when December 1st comes around. The long range forecast is hot and dry! No rain even on the horizon, I guess it is the turn of the southern hemisphere for what some parts of the USA and Europe got for their last summer. The days are bearable but it is the nights that I hate - sauna like.

Beautiful capture! I love the Fall season. I hope the drought doesn't affect the leaves colors too much!

Fall creeps in and then explodes in wondrous colours. Love the light on the speckled leaves.

We have a couple of trees that are completely turned, but most are still green. Very pretty, Carletta. :)

Beautiful early Fall -- beautiful picture!

Felisol said...

Autumn leaves are definitely the prettiest. I spot green, yellow, orange, red and brown in one single leaf.
Maybe the Creator's way to make us accept the beauty of death and changing seasons, even though it still makes me feel sad.

Ralph said...

The early 2012 Spring allowed the bloom to begin very early - alas, the leaves are turning much earlier six months later. The end of summer portends cooler temperatures to be, but the sea of green foliage will be orange, yellow and red shortly. But the beauty will be all over and ready to enjoy...

I wish I didn't have to do anything in the fall but spend time searching for shots like this! It is gorgeous.

Hi Carletta -- Yes Autumn is here and thank you so much for your photos because there are not many trees that turn this far south and it will be a while yet. Thanks for your sweetness over at Moring Dewdrops -- have you done anything in your art journal yet. I hope. We're having an event starting on Oct 1. Blessings Terri
