autumn

Those fly-away skies

As the sun rises,

The glorious trees glow in the light.

Distance 1.jpg

Geese call to each other;

Their reflections dot the water.

Distance 2.jpg

Peaceful skies return when they disappear.

It’s hard for the sky to compete with autumn

At this time of year.

Hanging on to autumn

Our winter snow has washed away in the rain,

So I’m still hanging on to autumn.

(Pictures taken a couple of weeks ago.)

Brightreflections.jpg

I can’t get enough of the bright reflections,

Bright.jpg

The emerald of the evergreens

Blending with the fiery colours of the birch trees.

Morereflections.jpg

The blueberry forests are green once again,

But I spy a furry friend in her autumn coat.

Autumn, reflected

The bare bones of autumn

With rich splashes of colour are delightful.

The fiery lanterns of leaves

Hang upside down in still waters.

Reflected.jpg

And all that gold from the autumn sun

Is reflected back on furry coat and field.

Sauna house portraits

If autumn could be summed up in a picture, it would be this one:

Golden leaves, the sauna house and Ruby posing by the water.

Simmie would rather explore

And swim than pose.

A week later, even more leaves have fallen off the trees,

Like whispers, and I see another portrait of the sauna house

Peeking out from behind the leaves.

Autumn scenes

It’s early autumn here …

And the fields are full of wildflowers still —

Flowerpower.jpg

And a dog or two.

(A wolf was spotted here a couple of weeks ago too, but it’s long gone.)

There’s nothing more wonderful

Than running free in autumn colours.

Autumn critters

I love the soft, misty feel of autumn —

Especially when a deer family decides to rest in the fields as I take my photo!

Ohdeer.jpg

The temperatures are still quite mild

And Simmie loves nothing more than swimming in the lake.

This is his face when I ask him to come out. (That’s right – he doesn’t want to!)

Simmie.jpg

As for Ruby,

She is content just catching leaves.

The golden path

The equinox has been and gone,

Which means it’s getting dark so early on in the evenings.

Goldenpath.jpg

We have to chase the light —

Or perhaps the light is chasing us.

(This is Simmie, who turned four this weekend.)

But when the sun comes out,

The woods are filled with gold.

Be still, my heart!

When the sun rises

And autumn leaves catch fire,

Catching fire.jpg

You can see copper flames

Reflected in the lake,

Autumn.jpg

And lemon lanterns

Lighting the way to winter.

Nature is a masterpiece

I slowly make my way down to the lake,

Hoping to see autumn miracles.

Stillness.jpg

The early morning is moody and mysterious,

Yet I glimpse masterpieces of autumn

In the gloomy light.

Moody.jpg

As it gets brighter, the peaceful grey sky

Makes the colours of leaves and fur pop.

Colours.jpg

The dogs chase one another,

Oblivious of the copper and gold around them.

The chase.jpg

When I get back to the boat that you see in the second photo,

The sun shines — leaving me with the beautiful taste

Of lemon glaze on water.

Upside down sky

I’m living in a beautiful world

Where autumn leaves and skies are reflected

On mirror surfaces of the lake;

Mirror.jpg

Where the sky

Is upside down in beautiful reflections;

Autumnwithclouds.jpg

Where trees

Are luminous in the water;

Upsidedown.jpg

And where dogs

Swim in clouds.
