Autumn scenes

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.

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!

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 golden path

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.

Floating in mist

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.)

Nature is a masterpiece

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.

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.

The jewels of autumn

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;

Ruby red.jpg

And the brilliance of a fallen leaf

Reflects onto rock like molten gold.

The brightness of autumn

Every year, I fall (get the pun?)

For the colours of autumn:

Golden

From green and gold

And flaming red;

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.

Bedazzling

Autumn is a glowing time of year:

Glowing

When trees glow

And leaves catch fire.

On fire

It’s a joyful time

Of dewy play

Joy

And swans

Showing off their families on the local lake.

Swan family

And, if you’re lucky,

You can catch frosted jewels

Among the leaves.

Ode to autumn

Leaves quietly cover a forest path.

Oscar leads the way…

Leafy Path

Around the bend, we come across the perfection

Of clouds, warm stone church and the flaming torches

Of the trees.

Panorama copy

The churchyard is ablaze with colour;

Leaves crunch underfoot.

Path

The warm red of the priest’s shed

Matches the leaves.

Wooden hut

Time to head home

Under the canopy of a dramatic sky.

Moody tractor

Oscar is more than happy with his walk —

For this is the radiant joy that is autumn.
