Delicious autumn

I love autumn and the autumn skies,

Especially the fireworks autumn puts on in the early mornings.

I’m invigorated by the sky’s soft blush,

The flamboyant colours of the leaves,

The dramatic harmony of sky and trees and water.

George Eliot put it so well when she wrote,

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

    Unbelievable! I could dwell in autumn seasons like yours – The colours are so beautiful and the calm of the water brings peace to mind and heart. How much inspiration you can get there I am sure – a pleasure for the eyes.

  9. ***My very soul is wedded to it**

    Eliot is a woman after my own heart.

    Damn, I wish I would have thought of that line.


    Lovely photos, Lady Fi. I am soaking in them. X

  16. “Wow wow and even more wow! Amazing, exquisite and oh so gorgeous shots! I do love autumn.” I usually have new words to share with each post I visit, but I think your words are exactly what I feel when I look at these autumn shots :)))

  17. The George Eliot quote is one of my favorite and it certainly expresses my feelings as I look at your photos! Superb, breathtaking, almost other worldly captures! Hope you have a great weekend!

      November 4, 2011 at 06:09

  39. Stunning! I love how the sky and trees seem to have coordinated their clothing!

    November 4, 2011 at 01:57

  40. Absolutely beautiful. You have really captured the beauty that people associate with fall.

    November 4, 2011 at 02:12

  41. These scenes are exquisite.. just dreamy and beautiful.

    November 4, 2011 at 03:22

  42. The shades of pink, mauve, rust-colored trees: yes the trees with the smoke-like fog emanating from the ground look spooky and amazingly beautiful.

    November 4, 2011 at 03:52

  43. Fantastic processing on these. That last one is something out of a fairytale….I love it!

    November 4, 2011 at 04:33

  44. Autumn leaves are so beautiful and perhaps more so because you know that soon they will whither on the branch and fall to the ground. It is a fleeting beauty… so glad you captured it!

    November 4, 2011 at 05:13

  45. Oh my, Fi… this is sheer poetry in photography. Living in the tropics has many, many pluses, but I do adore autumn, and Scandinavia is especially beautiful in this season. It gives me joy to experience this fall through your skillful lens.

    November 4, 2011 at 05:22

  46. Autumn sky is indeed a fireworks.

    November 4, 2011 at 05:31

  56. Fabulous early morning shots.

    November 4, 2011 at 09:54

  57. Hi there – our autumns are much less about colour than “up north” – more to do with a change of temperature and a shift in day length. I miss colours like this. But then again – I suppose I have skies like my post. Swings and roundabouts!


    November 4, 2011 at 10:03

  58. AL

    How lovely is the color of the sky it blended well with the color of autumn!

  80. Stunning captures, Lady Fi! I love the colors!

    November 5, 2011 at 02:20

  81. Oh, gosh – I’m glad your autumn is holding its colors! What fabulous teamwork in Nature when there is a show to put on!

    November 5, 2011 at 02:45

  82. Gorgeous. I love autumn, too. So far, here in central California, we’ve had an unusually warm October, but our first real chill hit last night and brought with it some needed rain. Soon the golden hillsides will be emerald green. I can’t be to capture beauty the way you do, but I will make a feeble attempt.

    November 5, 2011 at 02:58

  83. Beautiful photos–love the mist and fog around the lake. Flamboyant is such a great descriptive word to use to describe Fall color. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie:)

    November 5, 2011 at 05:12

  84. Truly beautiful as always. What type of trees have changed their hue so spectacularly?

    November 5, 2011 at 07:00

    • I think they are mainly silver birches.

    Nature’s finest artwork so masterfully captured by your camera work. Soothes the soul.

    November 5, 2011 at 07:42

  86. Simply beautifully captured shots…lovely soft dreamy feel!

    November 5, 2011 at 11:24

  87. Ladyfi,
    Your photos are poem and mirage floating in mist. They are almost divine!! I have no words to depict this scenery.
    Best wishes, keiko.

    November 5, 2011 at 12:26

  88. That is quite some colours you have capture here. Indeed very delicious. My favourite is the last one.

    November 5, 2011 at 14:25

  89. ds

    GASP! That first photo literally smacked my breath away. Stunning. Thank you.

    November 5, 2011 at 19:04

    November 5, 2011 at 22:40

  92. stunning! absolutely stunning!

    November 6, 2011 at 06:10

  93. The mix of mist and colour is wonderful. The trees seem to be aflame. Yes, autumn is truly beautiful.

    November 6, 2011 at 11:25

  94. Ooh, lovely. My first thought when that first shot came up (on your ‘revolving’ header) was ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’. Such a glorious set that so invokes thoughts of autumn.

    November 6, 2011 at 12:24

  95. JM

    Absolutely stunning! Hard to choose a favourite shot once more.

    November 6, 2011 at 17:40

  96. Wow! It’s hard to imagine that there is really scenery that looks like this. What a perfect combination of trees, sky, water, and lighting. It’s breathtaking. Thanks for stopping by at my SWF.

    November 7, 2011 at 03:19

  97. Oh my goodness, how can one comment on a beauty like this.. I have no words. Except that this is what makes fall the most stunning season. You are such a talented photographer, it is a joy to stop by here every time..

    November 7, 2011 at 10:28

  98. Very beautiful autumn landscape! I like them very much.

    November 8, 2011 at 00:46

    November 10, 2011 at 21:12

  105. The fog makes the picture. My choice of the 3 is the tightest/closest shot. It seems to work that way most of the time. Congrats on the POTW.

    November 10, 2011 at 21:25

  106. The top and bottom shots are absolutely gorgeous!!! I love the colors and intensity…the mist, the composition…Wonderful!!!

    November 14, 2011 at 08:38

  107. That top one is one of my favorites. Just a glance at it and a peace begins to settles in. Love it!

    November 20, 2011 at 07:56

  108. Fi, that first picture may be one of your best ever!!!!

    November 20, 2011 at 21:18
