Photography: Fall Colors

Well, before you know it all the leaves will have fallen off of the trees and the cold will set in. So, before they do I want you to remember the colors. Enjoy your weekend and peace to all the soldiers who ever fought for the good and rights of all men, women and children.

I absolutely love to see the leaves change colors. I think it is the most calming season of all.

You and my sister have a great weekend :)

SOOooo !
You know how human memory uses to forget so quickly !
You're right
I've forgotten now how are the trees when they are in spring with their tender green coloured leaves.
I've forgotten how were my rose bushes in June
The beautiful tulips and spring flowers
Even snow, I'm not remembering snow !

Happily we have our pictures to help us

Have a good week end, Stephen

Yes, I love that too. It's difficult for me to live where I can't see that.

Yet, you speak about it as if you are looking at it right now. :)Thanks and have a great weekend as well.

I love the fall and beautiful colors. I too was out in my neighborhood taking pictures and I will probably post them.

Hi Stephen, I've just been catching up on your posts. As usual, I am moved by the poems.

I can't, by the way, imagine you in the Navy.

Beautiful pictures! I was looking out the window the other evening and saw beautiful golden trees like yours and thought how beautiful autumn is. I love the change in colours too.

Jealous! Jealous! Jealous!

The trees don't change here, it pretty much looks the same all year long.

Gooders Girl said...

Sea Sun and Palms....But NO Winter coat! Yea!

I have not seen Autumn in 3 years...thanx for the reminder.

wow...the trees are BEAUTIFUL!

even a left-coast, evergreen loving sis can appreciate the beauty of fall leaves.

you're making me miss NYC even more than i already do.

fall has to be the most beautiful of all .... why does it seem to be the shortest season? I smell the air from your photos like i can step into them. Thank you.

Stephen A. Bess said...

Thanks and welcome!

The leaves are starting to all blow away.

Thanks! I'm looking forward to seeing your shots.

Thank you and welcome!

Thanks and I can't wait to see yours too.

Thanks. Also, I couldn't imagine me in once I got in. The funny thing is that I was always mistaken for a college boy when I was in the Navy. :)

I would love to see photos of Autumn in London.

Yeah, I missed it also when I lived in Savannah, Georgia. :)

Yeah, gotta love Miami. I could deal with that as long as I could visit north for a few days.

Prisoner's Wife-
:) Who can resist Autumn in New York. I'm sure that city misses you as well. Good to see you!

Thank you so much! I owe it all to FinePix. :)

This weekend was so beautiful in Rhode Island.

The weather was soft with a splash of warmth.

The rain came down, and chilled for a bit, but then went on with its business.

Stephen A. Bess said...

I agree. Saturday was nice!

Hope you had a happy weekend.

Stephen A. Bess said...

I like that, "sunny side of winter."
