What is more delicious than the bright flames of autumn
And the zen of a heron gliding over the water
Before flying off into eternity?

The bare bones of autumn
With rich splashes of colour are delightful.
The fiery lanterns of leaves
Hang upside down in still waters.
And all that gold from the autumn sun
Is reflected back on furry coat and field.

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.
For more portraits, please go to: Our World.
Sometimes the rising sun (arriving later and later every day)
Sets the trees aflame;
As for the clouds,
They give double joy:
Once in the sky and once in water reflected.

Autumn is a golden
Curtain of leaves;
It’s the russet fur
Of autumn-coloured dogs;
And the surprise of deer
Blending in with the trees.

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.
For more autumn shots, please go to: Our World.
Get your camera and two dogs
And walk down to the lake.
Admire the sunset with boats.
Turn away for a few seconds,
Allowing your furry friends to get into the photo.
Then click to get a sweet photobomb.

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.
For more gold, please visit: Our World.
August offers up a universe of lovely bouquets:
A dazzling pink galaxy of flowers;
Yellow suns floating in the wind;
Or a floral star in the sky;
And, finally, an orange planet
Of gorgeous, sunlit petals.
