It’s early autumn here …
And the fields are full of wildflowers still —
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.

I love the soft, misty feel of autumn —
Especially when a deer family decides to rest in the fields as I take my photo!
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!)
As for Ruby,
She is content just catching leaves.

The equinox has been and gone,
Which means it’s getting dark so early on in the evenings.
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.

The first cool morning:
Autumn mist is golden
As it caresses trees
And floats over the lone dog walker.
(All photos snapped with my mobile phone.)

I slowly make my way down to the lake,
Hoping to see autumn miracles.
The early morning is moody and mysterious,
Yet I glimpse masterpieces of autumn
In the gloomy light.
As it gets brighter, the peaceful grey sky
Makes the colours of leaves and fur pop.
The dogs chase one another,
Oblivious of the copper and gold around them.
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.
For more amazing colours, please go to: Our World.
I’m living in a beautiful world
Where autumn leaves and skies are reflected
On mirror surfaces of the lake;
Where the sky
Is upside down in beautiful reflections;
Are luminous in the water;
And where dogs
Swim in clouds.

Living near a new part of the lake
Gives wide views from stony cliffs.
Ruby glows among the autumn leaves
As she jumps up on a big rock that is more than 2 metres high.
Simmie prefers to camouflage himself
Among the yellow lanterns of leaves.
A leaf shines
Like a ruby;
And the brilliance of a fallen leaf
Reflects onto rock like molten gold.

Every year, I fall (get the pun?)
For the colours of autumn:
From green and gold
And flaming red;
To the abstract
Swirls of burning colours.
And, of course, the shining canopy
Of leaves makes a lovely background
For a chilly October swim.
For more brightness, please visit: Our World.
Autumn is a glowing time of year:
When trees glow
And leaves catch fire.
It’s a joyful time
Of dewy play
Showing off their families on the local lake.
And, if you’re lucky,
You can catch frosted jewels
Among the leaves.

Leaves quietly cover a forest path.
Oscar leads the way…
Around the bend, we come across the perfection
Of clouds, warm stone church and the flaming torches
Of the trees.
The churchyard is ablaze with colour;
Leaves crunch underfoot.
The warm red of the priest’s shed
Matches the leaves.
Time to head home
Under the canopy of a dramatic sky.
Oscar is more than happy with his walk —
For this is the radiant joy that is autumn.
