The Colors of Autumn

The autumn colors came late to my little corner of the world but for a brief few days there was lovely color to be found. All of these were taken along unmarked country back roads where we find some of  the best views. I love the red roof of the barn in the last shot. Be sure to look for the lovely shadow on the side of the barn of the bare limbed tree that stands beside it. I wish I'd noticed that when I was taking the photo so I could have zoomed in on 'nature's art.'

I glad you pointed out the shadow on the barn. Very interesting, and I would have missed it otherwise.
Autumn color has been glorious here, too, and so quickly fading.
Have a wonderful day!

That tree shadow is really sneaky. I had to look for it after you told me it was there. You found some very colorful scenes.

Gail Dixon said...

Blessed you are to live around such amazing colors. Very well photographed. I can see these in a calendar or hanging on a wall.

I like the way you arranged for us to see all three pictures in the large size with one click! Beautiful shots of the autumn colors. The red-roofed barn is very special with the attractive tree next to it.

No better colors then those from fall. I love that barn, how it peaks out of the nature. Great images!

I love the red barn. It is just sitting their waiting to be noticed. In a strange way, it carries the colors of the leaves nicely. Thank you for sharing.

Simply incredible color and composition too! We didn't see a whole lot of Autumn this year, so I really appreciate sharing yours. Thank you.

Rose said...

Oh, Carletta, these are beautiful. Our color is beautiful, but leaves are falling so quickly now. I wonder just how much longer it can last.

I surely hope we have some of this gorgeous color left when we leave for WV on Friday. Will have my eye out for barns. Your barn finds are always such collectors items.

Betsy Adams said...

Gorgeous Fall colors, Carletta. I love Autumn--and will be sad when it's totally gone. We've had lots of wind lately--so many of our leaves are DOWN.
Hugs,
Betsy

You live in a very pretty part of the country. These are all so pretty. I see what you mean about the shadow. I probably wouldn 't have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out.
Thanks for sharing.
